Chang named Physician of the Quarter at Baptist Easley

EASLEY — Baptist Easley Hospital recently named David P. Chang, M.D., the Cam Underhill Practicing Excellence Physician of the Quarter.
The award is based on the Baptist Easley Medical Staff Standards of Behavior: Integrity, Compassion, and Competence.
Excerpts from Dr. Chang’s nominations read: “First, he is brilliant and demonstrates complete knowledge of internal medicine. Second, he communicates his diagnosis in layman terms to his patients, speaking directly ‘to’ them and not ‘at’ them. Third, he listens carefully to the patient, and you feel he is an integral part of your personal health program. If I ever move, I’ll still drive 100 miles to keep him as my primary physician.”
Another nomination read, “He is also a leader at Baptist Easley and puts the interest of the hospital and patients’ long-term health first. He has outstanding diagnostic skills.”
Yet another nominee said, “He is a happy, positive man. He knows me and my history, and I’m not just a ‘number’ to him.”
Dr. Chang currently practices at Easley Internal Medicine. He has been on staff at Baptist Easley since May 2000, and is Board certified in Internal Medicine and a Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine.
