As I was talking on the phone, mentally I was thinking... What in the world is the person talking about? Plastic surgery? Need to attend a meeting? WHO IS THIS??? Finally interrupting the person on the other line, I stated I was thoroughly confused and we both realized that I was not the correct Christopher Chang, MD.
And that triggered a google search for who my doppelgänger was... Oddly, it was in a New York Times wedding section article that I finally found HIM! Of course, there are many Christopher Chang, MD throughout the United States, but this guy was just a little too similar that patients may get confused.
In any case, here's a comparison...

Hopefully patients will not get confused between the two of us.
Here are my other doppelgängers who are less likely to cause patient confusion:
