The Best Care Requires a Relationship

As large integrated hospital systems are becoming more and more prevalent, patient care has become more clinical.  Physicians are salaried hospital employees that are incentivized to curb costs and increase profits.  In a clinical setting patients are followed by a staff of specialized health care workers and decisions are made in committee.

The Surgical Group of South Laguna is an independent private practice. Dr. Coccia or Dr. Chang will personally follow you through your entire course of treatment.  We understand that this is a difficult time in your life.  We want to walk with you and your family as we manage your care. 

We’ve built many relationships over the last 25 years with our patients and their families.  Our only incentive is your healing.  We believe the relationships nurtured between our patients, their families and our staff are an important part of the path to healing.
