Doctor Supports Your Health Beyond the Exam Room

“Part of my job is to try to figure out what else is going on, what else is affecting this person, and try to get everything into context that this person is experiencing,” Dr. Christopher Chang says, family medicine physician at ARC Far West.

Beyond the Exam Room

Whether or not you know what may be affecting your health, Dr. Chang is there to help. He addresses both what you’re experiencing, and bridges the gap to what may also impact you and your health. “I think it's important that when you're meeting with somebody for the first time, you have to really pay attention to what they're explaining to you,” Dr. Chang says.

In his partnership with you, he aligns the goals you have for your health with some medical guidance.

“I'm always trying to work with you to help you reach your goals, work together as a team to try to figure out what's the best way to take care of your health,” Dr. Christopher Chang says. “We can work together to achieve that.”

More Than Medicine

Sometimes being healthy means asking for help. In one case, Dr. Chang helped a patient request time off from work to recover from a sudden death in the family.

“That entire episode was just really, really hard,” Dr. Christopher Chang says. "Of course, you need to take some time to work on yourself. And to not feel embarrassed, or shy, or to feel bad about needing to do that.”

He says that working with patients like you to achieve your health goals is the most rewarding part of being a doctor.
