Ya Ju Chang, MD
- ASSISTANT CLINICAL PROFESSOR | Medicine, Rheumatology
I was born in Taiwan and grew up in Brazil now I am practicing medicine for more then 20 years in The Unite States. I am fortunate that I am very familiar with occidental and oriental cultures which help me to integrate better with our patients in this diverse background city of New York
Being rheumatologist I am very interested in lupus Sjogren syndrome rheumatoid arthritis gout and inflammatory spondyloarthropathy because they are prevalent in both Chinese and American population with slight difference regarding their disease manifestations treatment and prognosis. But I don't mind to see some other rare diseases such as Vasculitis or Scleroderma. My main purpose is able to help people.
