My wife had surgery for varicose veins. His bed side manner was terrible. Full of himself. To make matters worse, the simple procedure that should have fixed her problem was unsucessful and she will undergo the procedure again.

Dr Chang needs to listen to his patients. I felt I was a bother to him.
