Patient Testimonials

Photo“From the minute I entered the office I knew that Dr. Kind and his staff only had my best interests at heart. After the emotional whirlwind of having a bilateral mastectomy and the removal of breast implants due to breast implant complications, I didn’t know what to expect, but I could not have asked for a more respectful and compassionate experience from Dr. Kind. In explaining confidently and knowledgeably the DIEP Flap and all that it entailed, Dr. Kind relieved my fears and gave me hope in that I had finally found the perfect choice. I can genuinely say my experience with Dr. Kind was absolutely excellent.”

Patti“Dr. Kind could not have a more appropriate name. You might think someone so talented and esteemed would be intimidating and unapproachable, but Dr. Kind is personable, sensitive, generous, and even funny. After I was diagnosed with cancer in only one breast, I decided to have a bilateral mastectomy due to my family history. Once Dr. Kind explained what the DIEP Flap was, I had no doubts that it was the right decision for me and that he was the right surgeon to perform it. Surgically, I feel I was in the best hands in the world. Cosmetically, I benefited from his artistically-picky-perfectionism. Dr. Kind will forever have a place in my heart.”

“After being diagnosed as BRCA2 positive and deciding to take the most aggressive treatment (double mastectomy with reconstructive surgery), I was referred to Dr. David Chang. From the first meeting through the last procedure Dr. Chang was compassionate, well informed and always respectful. Every step of the way he told me what my options were and gave me his opinion as to which option he thought was best for me without trying to sell me something I didn't need. Dr. Chang's knowledge is extensive and his handiwork is impressive. With a surgery this big there was going to be scarring, but once Dr. Chang added the nipples and areolas I felt like a complete person again. However, what stands out to me as going well beyond the call of duty is the fact that Dr. Chang visited me in the hospital every morning following surgery, driving from San Francisco to Oakland and back before going to work. Having Dr. Chang check in on me gave me comfort during a difficult time. ”
