Chang (doesn't deserve title of Dr) was not my surgeon, was covering for Dr Datta over weekend. Came into my room and told me I can go home. Never looked at my incision, never asked how I was feeling. No post d/c meds and gave instructions to follow up in office in 2-3 months. This after a 4 level laminectomy. If you are looking for substandard treatment this is it
