What People Say About Dr. Marisa Chang, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr. Chang is knowledgable and explains her thinking clearly. She is also easy to talk to. In my case, she figured out how to get me the help I needed quickly when in a crisis. I can't imagine where I'd be now had I not made the decision to seek her help.

I've been suffering from cluster migraines for 15 years. Cycles hit about every two years and last about eight weeks with daily attacks. Other doctors helped with pain management, but none has been able to figure out how to break a cycle--until I met Dr. Chang. She told me there is need to suffer like I am. During this last cycle at about day 10, I saw Dr. Chang. She gave me a "cocktail" of drugs under general monitored anesthesia. Since then, I have been headache free. Dr. changed my life.

I am a medical malpractice attorney with more than 20 years experience. Dr. Chang has been my treating neurologist for the past four years. I recommend her without hesitation to clients, colleagues and friends. If my children needed neurological evaluation I would bring them to her. Her qualifications are impeccable and she has a warm and personal bedside manner. Her office and nursing staff are amazing.

Dr. Chang is my husband's neurologist. We find it is easy to get appointments with her and they begin and end on time. When she is with us, she is 100% focused on my husband. Appropriate physician caring is about the attitude a doctor has for one's patients and the smarts he/she brings to the examination room. It is also about making sure that the details of dealing with the system are manageable. Dr. Chang is always there when we need her. Dr. Chang gets it right.
