He did brain surgery on me back in1995 n I just want to thank him cuz I have had 3 brain surgeries n if. I do say so myself I am doing well. Of course I have many deficits but he has kept me alive to see my son graduate ????? from college n pursue his education in physical therapy. My son is getting his masters n doctoral degrees in physical therapy. He is making me a proud mom. Thank you Dr. Chang n the good Lord. By the way he did surgery on my brain stem.

I had suffered with trigeminal neuralgia for years. All the other Drs just gave me pills and said it was due to aging. I searched Dr and came across Dr. Chang's name. I called him, we met and he gave me all my options to me in detail and within one month I decided on surgery. He found all my veins touching my nerves and wrapped the nerves with Teflon. I have not had any pain since. He & his staff was excellent and I would recommend him to anyone suffering with nerve pain. He was great!!!

In 2006 Dr. Chang performed emergency brain surgery to remove a grapefruit sized right temporal minigioma tumor. He is a wonderful surgeon and was so concerned about my family during my surgery. God's blessings to Dr. Chang and his staff.
