Patient Care Philosophy

I enjoy helping my patients make informed health-care decisions by providing them with the most current medical information and management options regarding their gynecologic care. I enjoy listening to the patient’s concerns and perspectives and integrating this with up-to-date minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic techniques to deliver compassionate and individualized care.

Personal Interests

Gardening with a focus on edible landscaping. I enjoy harvesting the “fruits” of my labor, cooking and taking classes to develop new skills (cheese making, sushi making, mastering smoking meats). As a high school and college athlete and having two children who are involved high school and college sports, I enjoy giving back by serving as a team parent for various high school and club sports teams. Growing up fishing in Astoria, Oregon, I volunteer for organizations supporting a cleaner Puget Sound and Northwest waterways.

Clinical Interests

Evaluation and management of: dysplasia of the female genital tract/ abnormal pap smears; abnormal uterine bleeding; postmenopausal bleeding; pelvic masses; fibroids; polyps; ovarian cysts and tumors. Expertise in minimally invasive surgery, including the full range of surgical approaches (vaginal, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery).

Research Interests

Dr. Chiang is nationally recognized as a leader in women's health education, curriculum design, and assessment of clinical competence, with emphasis on ambulatory and surgical training of our future OBGYN physicians. Other special interests include perioperative counseling, assisting patients to weigh the risks/benefits and optimizing their care.
