He and his staff have been nothing but amazing. Thank you all for what you do.
I am all about prevention. When I needed Mohs surgery Dr. Chang was recommended by a friend. Being nervous about the surgery, he helped to assure me he was going to good care of me and informed me every step of the way. My recenShow moret visit was for a complete check for new skin cancers. He understands my concerns and listens and takes his time.... I appreciate that in Dr. Chang.

Dr Chang is at the top of his game, very knowledgeable a nd thorough, very willing to answer any question no matter how small. I felt very confident and comfortable while seeing him and his Assistant. Kudos to both!
Fast and efficient, He is very nice, explains everything and very smart. Plus no long wait time in the office lobby.
I was called into the appointment room right on time with a short wait (less than 5 minutes) for the doctor. My skin surgery was quick, clean, and painless. I only had to wait a half hour for the results and then I was stitched, bandaged, and done. I do not think I was there for more than an hour which is very brief for MOHS surgery.
Dr. Chang was attentive to the problem and prescribed the most appropriate treatment for it. However, there was a staff delay in calling in the prescribed medications, which took 2 phone calls to straighten out.
Dr. Chang and the staff are skilled, caring and empathetic!
We Love this office. The Receptionist, front office girls, nurses and especially Dr Chang!
All went well as expected.
Have had Moh's procedures done by 3 different doctors over the years, Dr. Chang is by far the most patient friendly, low key, minimal stress experience I've had. Very thorough, explaining everything and answering all questions and concerns with patience and a caring demeanor
I asked for a check up on previous surgery. He was very willing to see me. Excellent surgeon and very caring individual.
Excellent follow up
