We (my wife & I) love *Dr. Chang! He does not rush thru appts. at all, explains everything so it is easy to understand. He is caring & personable. We are fully confident in his care.


Dr Chang was very professional. He listened to what I had to say, He gave me choices and even scheduled an appt with another doctor for that afternoon. Dr Chang is great. The nurse and all medical assistants are very kind, have a lot of patience and understanding. What a great group.
