Meet the Staff
The dedicated team of professionals supporting Dr. Eric Chang is one reason so many women and men in the Baltimore area choose our plastic surgery practice. Our staff includes Josephine, a double board-certified physician assistant, and Nicole, who’s been with Dr. Chang for 10 years as his patient coordinator. Along with Emmy, the trio provides patients at Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery a positive experience beginning when they first contact our practice.
