    Dr. Chang is such a gift. Kind. Goodl Warm. Impressively knowledgeable and articulate. I have been with her 15 years and cannot think of a single negative experience. I have only seen her "tired" on one occasion - and even that she turned into a positive - as an opportunity to see her commitment to growth learning and thought in the field of medicine. That appointment was as thoughtful complete and kind as any of them. I have had to deal with many providers over the years (cancer Parkinson's nerve damage in myself or family). She is simply the best. I am so grateful for her care.
    Mar 24, 2023
    I trust Dr Chang completely. She always listens to not only my medical needs but my personal needs also. I feel she is very much concerned about my total well-being. I am very grateful to have such an excellent doctor.
    Mar 15, 2023
    Provider did not seem to know my medical history and said several things that were incorrect. Scribe makes a lot of errors in notes. That happens at every visit.
    Mar 12, 2023
    Dr. Chang always exceeds expectations: calm professional and warm at the same time. My friends are all envious that I am one of her patients.

    Dr Chang since 2017 has failed to provide quality continuity of care. She has treated me as if I check off her list of things to do however once there is a obstacle she has not shown any initiative or care in the recent exams and tests which has shown a decline in health nor has provided any resources or plan on how to improve my health under her care.

    Dr. Chang gives me clear and straightforward information and guidance. I consider her to be the best of the best. Her dedication to teaching her students staff and patients is clearly why she's a the top of her game. I'm always grateful for her service.
    Aug 12, 2022
    The doctor is not accepting new patients since a long time ago. She's too famous and booked. She won't take my client because she's a retiree and was educated. She gives way to the poor and uneducated patients who don't understand English. Very noble indeed.
    Aug 10, 2022
    Dr Chang LISTENED to all of my symptoms and concerns and together we made decisions for care.
    Aug 02, 2022

    Very happy with Dr Chang attentive and not documenting while listening
    Jul 06, 2022
    I would NOT recommend this provider. She was not prepared to do an annual physical exam. She had not read my chart before seeing me. She appeared to not know what about as going on. Very disappointing experience. I will not see her again.
    Jun 12, 2022
    I have been under Dr Chang's care for over twenty years. She is a very experienced knowledgeable compassionate physician and so in tune with my thinking. I feel very fortunate to have her managing my care.
    Jun 08, 2022
    This was my first in person visit and the doctor became focussed on one blood test result which was high not normal for me. I felt she spent too much time on that rather than the visits purpose.
    Jun 03, 2022
