Kay Chang, MD

  • “Children have so much potential and life to enjoy. It is my honor to be their doctor.”

As long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a healer. There is nothing more fulfilling than having a scared patient and family come to see me with a problem and then leave with the problem happily resolved with a big smile on their face. It is even more rewarding when I am doing this for a young child with so much potential and life to enjoy. This is why I chose to become a pediatric ear, nose, and throat surgeon.

I have a sacred duty to each and every one of the patients and families that see me to calm all of their fears and concerns, and help them get better no matter how minor or serious the problem may be. I love working at Stanford Children's Health because it is the best place where I can accomplish these goals. Here, we have the resources and infrastructure to provide the most innovative cutting-edge care and we're surrounded by other tremendously qualified colleagues and professionals who all work together as a team to heal our patients and make the experience easy for their families.
