Dr Chang Tung was my surgeon when a very large blood clot was found in my leg. He was very reassuring of the procedure and put me at ease immediately with his extensive knowledge and sense of humor. He even came back to the hospital at midnight when I was in extreme pain and ordered a CT scan. He discovered I had pancreatitis and ordered meds to relieve my pain. I owe him a debt of gratitude.
