Condescending, pompous, uncaring, disrespectful.
It would take to much time to describe his behavior. Asking questions, challenging him in anyway isn't tolerated. He made my next few visits a waste of time. Isn't truthful.

Truly Caring Doctor
2022 I am so thankful for Dr Eric Chang. He never stops trying to help improve my pain. Most recently referred me to a postural therapy called Egoscue. This therapy is specifically meant to get people out of pain and be more active. I am so grateful he is my doctor. Dr Changs staff specifically Patti and Rosie give 200% to the patients and are an asset to his practice. 2019 Dr Eric Y Chang has guided a continual transformation of my life over the last 13 years as his patient. He includes me in making a plan (goals) and helped me dramatically reduce my pain meds. His care is dynamic & multi approached. I cried constantly with my nervous system on overdrive with pain, and was not an easy patient to help. It took time, but I have come a long way with Dr Changs help.

Doesn't listen, doesn't answer questions, can't sit still for 2 mins. He and his staff messed up my referral more than once, so 2 months later, I'm still in a ton of pain and they have done nothing. Was even told that due to a change in staff I must have "slipped between the cracks". Can't get a return call at all. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Dr. Chang is horrible, rude, treats staff like slaves. He deserves a poor rating. Seems like early signs of dementia. Distracted each time I went in for pain med treatments. avoid at all costs.

After suffering for many years with chronic pelvic floor pain, which triggered chronic back pain, I discovered Dr. Eric Chang in Orange, CA. Dr. Chang patiently listened to my history and in his calming, caring demeanor, he laid out a plan to help me. All tests were performed in house. The staff both office and surgical were great!!! He has helped me to regain my life and I know he will continue to be there for me. I can not say enough good things about Dr Chang and the entire Staff. V. Mills
