Our first appt with Dr Chang was cancelled by his office (after waiting 2 weeks for appt), made 2nd appt, waited 2 1/2 weeks. After travelling over 2 hours Dr Chang walked into exam room, flipped thru medical records and stated he couldn't do anything without an MRI. Something we addressed with his staff beforehand as my husband has a pain implant making an MRI impossible. No direction was given, no concern. On his own my husband lined up surgery with another clinic and had the implant switched out, got an MRI and made another appt. Again, waiting over 2 weeks for appt. Diagnosis was made, surgery recommended. For the first time ever we had a 2nd opinion. Found a remarkable Dr who scheduled surgery right away, whereas Dr Chang thought he might be able to fit us in by September. Our encounter with this Dr and his clinic was callous and disrespectful, a huge amount of time was wasted due to his office issues. And Dr Chang was very insensitive.

My surgery went well but everything leading up to that point was extremely difficult. Everyone I encountered in Dr. Chang’s office made errors in the process of getting my surgery authorized and scheduled causing a long delay. I almost did not get an ordered medical device for post surgery because no one submitted the orders to the device representative even after I asked them more than once if the device was ready. Dr. Chang is a great surgeon but be prepared to micromanage every step of the process to get to point of having surgery and receiving post op devices.

Dr Chang evaluated my wife for sudden severe leg and back pain. He was thoughtful and took time to explain to her what was happening and alternative approaches. She had surgery and the follow up too. He was kind and spent time making sure she had all of her questions answered and understood as well
