      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.

      I couldn't be happier with the results of my coflex implants. I suffered from severe back pain for 30 years and now I have real relief from pain! As soon as the anesthesia wore off I was able to walk . Three weeks later I was playing golf. Dr. Chang gave me the opportunity to enjoy life again!! His office staff is superb as well.

      Dr. Chang did my last spinal surgery in 2013 and I went back to him in 2018 for spinal fusion on 2 vertebrae in my neck. He is the only one I will let touch me - he is that good. And , he is so kind and understanding- even called me at home on a Sunday !!

      Dr. Chang is caring, compassionate & excellent surgeon. When I went in with the MRI disc of my neck on a Thursday, he saw the extreme pain I was in and scheduled me for surgery the next day! After the operation I was pain free. I thanked him for doing such a good job and he told me that God also had a part in guiding him. I had never heard a doctor or surgeon acknowledge that. Just a warm & wonderful human being!!! He also has a staff that is very helpful and friendly.

      Dr. Chang is a caring and knowledgeable surgeon. He was able to offer me the latest options to repair two herniated discs in my cervical spine. I was back to work in three weeks, pain free, with full sensation returning to my arms and hands. I am grateful for this man's compassion and skills.

      Dr. Chang is one of the best doctors I ever have been to. He performed spinal surgery on me and put in a titanium spacer, instead of spinal fusion, which limits your mobility. Now I am pain free for the first time in many years. If surgery is needed see Dr. Mark Chang in Dyer, Indiana, Patricia Sherman

      In April of 2017, Dr. Chang performed and L4-5 laminectomy, foraminotomy, discectomy with coflex device inserted. Prior to this surgery, I had been misdiagnosed for over 8 months by another orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Chang's surgery provided immediate relief of sciatica in my right leg. His bedside manner and skill is superb. I am still a patient due to an unfortunate accident but can attest that Dr. Chang is an outstanding surgeon who is honest and compassionate.
