Dr. Chang rocks!

Provider seemed rushed at the end of a busy day; provider seemed defensive about some questions; provider did not focus on a long-term approach but rather a "try this" approach.

i'm not really sure the Dr. Chang heard what I had to say. Much of what he said was clearly memorized responses to pre-conceived questions. Mind you, I'm not 100% sure that he wasn't listened, but neither am I sure that he was. I left feeling he was trying to slot me into where he felt I should be.

good doctor

I followed Dr. Chang from his previous clinic to Swedish to stay with him for my sleep health care.

he oversimplified and used "words I can understand" too much. I have a masters degree. I do not need him to boil things down to such simplistic terms when I know the human body is more nuanced than that.

I am very impressed with Dr. Chang. He is very bright and knowledgeable in his specialty. Did not know anything about him before my visit but am very pleased he was assigned to me. Am somewhat knowledgeable about the medical field as my only son is a primary care physician and we have talked about doctor/patient issues at length. Dr. Chang is a credit to your organization in my view

Very informative and personable.

He did not seem to hear anything I was saying. He spoke to me like I was a confused little girl who had never heard of sleep apnea or C-PAP devices, even after explaining that my father, father-in-law, and husband all have sleep apnea and use C-PAP devices and/or mouth appliances. He did ask about my weight over the last year, but did not go any further than recommending I lose some.

[...] This is the same doctor that cared for my husband and he is a very nice and capable Doctor.
