Provider Bio

From the Provider

“Teaching high school prior to a career in medicine gave me a deep appreciation for the power of education, access, and empowerment in reproductive health care – no matter what stage of life.”

About the Provider

While Dr. Chang’s teaching experience sparked her interest in OB/GYN as a specialty, exposure to it during medical school at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts amplified it. She was fascinated by all aspects of the specialty and her ability to have a positive impact in the lives of her patients. Today, Dr. Chang’s clinical interests include preventative care, family planning, helping patients through complications of pregnancy, operative hysteroscopy and medical and surgical management of fibroids. Above all, she is inspired by the ability to develop lasting relationships with her patients and support them through all stages of life. Outside of work, she enjoys all types of outdoor activities—hiking, biking, camping and snowboarding—as well as cooking and trying new restaurants.

    This was my first time seeing Dr. Chang...I loved her! I was very impressed by her bedside manor especially since I am actually a patient of Dr. Hansen who I could not get in to see with our schedules coinciding...and I appr cistern her kindness and willingness to see me here and there when I need to. I have two more appointments set up with her and I am so very much appreciative that she is ok with me having to switch back and forth so that I can make my appointments when Dr. Hansen is not in. Thank you Dr. Katherine Chang! You are a sweetheart and I look forward to seeing you again soon as my appointments get closer together in preparation of his impending birth! I love this clinic and can not say more about how kind the entire staff is from the front desk to the billing to the asssitants and doctors that everyone is! I have been to another of these clinics and no one knew what was going on, no one was on top of things, everyone was tense and seemed unhappy. I am very blessed to be a patient at the Lloyd clinic! Thank you everyone for making my experience such a positive one! <3

    Everyone was super nice and helpful! I also felt like I was finally heard which was a very nice change of pace for me. And the woman who took my blood with the pet rabbits as a kid (weird fact I know) was AMAZING. I?m terrified of Needles and she made it so painless and comfortable for me!

    Dr. Chang was fantastic! First gynecologist I've encountered who listened, validated my concerns, and didn't try to push another unnecessary steroid or topical on me. Thank you!
