Patient Comments (1)
in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |
Been seeing Dr. Chang for yrs. Right B4 a 3-day weekend, he refused to renew my blood pres. and anxiety meds until I came in to see him, except that he couldn't see me for 2 more weeks. He refused to even give me a 1 month renewal until my appt, so I had to abruptly stop taking both meds, which caused an emotional breakdown after I called his office several days in a row, and received absolutely NO help. You are NOT supposed to abruptly stop taking anxiety meds!Any good Dr knows that!
