Dr Chang is one of a kind, his passion, concern and care for his patients is unmatched. He truly cares about his patients and for the quality of his patients care.

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.
