Dr. Ching saved my life four years ago when I was in cardiac arrest at Huntington Hospital. Due to his skill as a cardiac surgeon I have enjoyed a full life with few after effects. I was sorry to see him move his practice to San Francisco, and wish him all the best. His new patients are very lucky to have him there.
Insurance: Blue Cross / Blue Shield
Rushing through my appt, not listening to me at all, and poor bedside manner. I don't recommend.
I met Dr.Ching for the very first time in the ER where I was diagnosed with Heart Disease. From the first moment I met him up until now (7+ years) he has ALWAYS been, attentive, caring and informative. He NEVER talks "over your head" and ALWAYS listens. He is not a "run in run out" doctor visit. He is all about quality not quantity care. I do not think twice about putting my life in his hands. If you have the opportunity to meet him and select him as your physician do it....know that you will be blessed to have him on your side.=) The office support staff folks are also GREAT! I have never waited more then 5-15 minutes to get in. Once in wait time no more then 5-7min. All in all you will not be disappointed!He is one of the few physicians left providing true patient quality care!

Staff was cordial and efficient. Wait time was about 30 minutes. Dr. Ching was very attentive, and took time to listen to my concerns. He was very informative, and explained his care plan very well. I was very satisfied with my visit. Other patients leaving the practice also seemed happy with the other physicians in this large practice. Having a diagnostic lab for stress tests and echo right there is also a plus. I had to go to quest lab for my blood work due to my insurance plan. I would definitely recommend this practice to others who are looking for a cardiologist.||Respond|
