Talking about Philip Chang, M.D.

I met Dr. Phillip when I was admitted to the burn center and then saw him for the follow up recently. He is kind and very thorough with explaining the treatment plan as well as his choice of the prescriptions. He is also empathetic to the patient’s traumatic burn experience. Burn victims definitely need this kind of support since we are going through so much!!.
