Brian Hasse – Aug 12, 2021
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!

M. Costello – Feb 24, 2021
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.

Stewart Scott – Dec 30, 2020
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.

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.
