WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY
Albert Chang, MD MPH
Pediatrician and Regional Medical Director Orange County AltaMed Health Services Corporation
Having practiced pediatrics in Orange County now for almost 10 years, I feel very fortunate that we have a program such as Serving Kids Hope for our at risk obese patient population. Dr. Patricia has brought together an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced set of specialists who provide a directed level of care and resources to our young patients and their families. In my busy offices, we are oftentimes unable to provide the time to fully educate and answer all the patients questions during the single visit. Dr Patricia's program is able to provide the time to go over the individualized patient care plan, and hit all the most important aspects of care with her Multidisciplinary Team. Their team’s unique way of connecting and inspiring children and parents both has made a meaningful impact within the Orange County community and among my patients and their families.
