A year ago Dr Chang performed a micro-discectomy on my lower back (L5,S1) and I could not be happier with his professionalism. My surgery went very well and with no complications. Dr. Chang was very knowledgeable and explained everything. I was very comfortable talking with him and did not at all feel like just another patient. I'm was so pleased with Dr. Chang and his staff that I will be returning to him for a disc replacement in my neck (C6,C7).
