DR. CHANG IS SINPLY THE BEST!!!!
Dr. Chang is nothing but the best. He totally fixed me. I had back surgery #4 from another doctor and things went very wrong I went to see Dr Chang took him tje same MRI disk from the other Dr. That said I just need more time to heal. Dr Chang found 7 different things wrong with my back. 2 screws to far in my spine causing me to pass out. 2 screws that were crooked and a broken screw in my spine. And 2 crooked cages. Dr Chang had to take everything out and redo everything. But the broken screw and the 2 crooked cages because of scare tissue was to bad. Not I can bend over and touch the ground with both hands. And I am fused from L3 To L5,S1. He also did a neck surgery and I am great. The man is nothing but amazing!!!!. Thank you Dr Chang. MIKE A HOOK

Dr Chang performed a Laminectomy to relieve severe pain in my back and leg. While still in the hospital, I was able to walk almost pain free after years of suffering. Dr Chang came highly recommended and I can now see why. He is THE BEST!

I had extreme pain down my left leg for ten months. I was referred to Dr Chang and he did surgery. I am now pain free and am thankful for the excellent care Dr. Chang provided. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering back surgery. His staff provided me with all the answers I needed before and after the surgery.

I had a major back surgery in 2010 out of Swedish Covenant in Chicago, 9 levels fused, 2 discs, scaffolding system to correct curvature. Was experiencing major pains, could barely walk and both feet were almost completely numb. Went to Northwestern and saw their top Doctor after numerous x rays/mri's etc. was told that nothing could be done as far as the damage that was done only Hope's of no further progression. Saw Dr. Mark Chang and he told me that he could reverse most of the damage and prevent further progression which he obtained after an 8 hour surgery! A miracle worker! I thank God every day for guiding Dr. Chang!

I think Dr. Chang is an exceptional person and surgeon. I am 73 and had spinal stenosis plus a herniated disc. Dr. Chang performed spinal fusion and inserted stabilizing apparatus connecting L4 and L5. Within a week of the surgery I was without pain and within two months I was running and playing golf. I highly recommend Dr. Chang. He exceeds expectation!

Review: Dr. Mark Chang. I had a virtual appointment today at 3:30 p.m. I was asked to check in 30 minutes early, which I did. I was kept waiting for more than an hour. Dr. Chang and his staff must think my time has no value. Because I have other obligations, I had no choice but to log off the virtual appointment. The doctor and his staff should know that this is nothing short of rude, disrespectful behavior. Perhaps he’s a good doctor. I don’t know. But he will not get any accolades from me.

I had a lower back issue that two other doctors could not figure out. After talking to a few friends Dr. Chang’s name came up. I seen Dr. Chang with my issue that has been bothering me for quite some time. After a short first visit then a MRI, he identified my problem, explained to me why I was having my issue and made the recommendations for treatment. Since my issue was not as severe as others I was lucky enough to have physical therapy. A month and a half later and I am feeling great. Chang’s bed side manner is second to none. He explained everything in detail and answered every question I had about my back. He also spoke so I could totally understand what he was saying and what he meant. I have a neighbor that also seen Chang earlier this year about his back problem and he said he has never felt better. Dr Chang is a great and friendly doctor.

My visit with Dr. Mark Chang was exactly how I needed it to be, quick and easy. I was able to work with his staff to receive what felt like an instant appointment. For my appointment, Dr Chang was so kind, very intelligent, and was right on time! He answered all my questions very clearly and explained exactly what needed to happen for my pain relief. It was bittersweet but I was scheduled for surgery the very next day! Dr Chang checked on me before AND after my surgery to see how I was and if I had any questions. My surgery went SO well and I now have ZERO pain. I cannot thank Dr. Chang enough - such a life saver and overall such a kind doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Chang for your spine care needs!

Dr. Chang performed my back surgery in July 2019. He was so thorough, knowledgeable, patient and kind. Due to his expertise, I've healed without any complications and no longer have any lower back pain. His office staff is also amazing. I wouldn't see any other spine surgeon.

This was my third surgery with Dr. Chang. He discovered multiple myeloma (cancer) during previous kyphoplasty. This time incuded 3 lamenectomies, kyphoplasty for fracture and fusion. All after I was sent home with pain meds from Northwestern Hospital. He is extremely thorough, a clear communicator, and a caring person. He's just the best.
