      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
