Doctor Chang is the best ENT speciailist I have ever had.
He is very knowledgable, friendly and, most important of all, willing to listen. I had severe vertigo attacks. Other doctors just gave me motion sickness pills. Doctor Chang was able to significantly reduce the symptoms after one visit and fixed it after the second. I am grateful for his expertise.
Seeing Dr. Davis was a fantastic decision.
Between himself and his staff, the experience was extremely positive. Great bedside manner and very attentive. Already breathing better and would recommend Dr. Davis and Texas ENT to anyone! Great experience.
