    Dr. Chang is very thoughtful in his demeanor, decision making, and patient care. He will do what is medically necessary, not elective-which is key. You can trust him and know that you are in the best hands possible when it comes to your spine and your health. I recommend Dr. Chang to anyone with spine issues due to his high level of skill. To say that Dr. Chang is the BEST is an understatement!

    Dr. Chang kept me out of a wheelchair and not only is a phenomenal surgeon, his bedside manner is amazing. A very kind and caring soul with the best talent God can give a person. Truley an amazing man and surgeon. Never in a rush to get you in and out. Takes his time to answer any and all concerns a patient may have and tries all other options before even bringing up surgery.
