    Patient Comments (3)
    I am a nurse, and all I can ask myself, Is this guy for real? He talks out both sides of his mouth providing more office visits without a diagnosis. (billed at 330.00 per visit) Suggesting that physical therapy for an undiagnosed injury is necessary before you do an x-ray. He doesn't listen, but if he does, he takes credit for all the interventions that you suggest.

    Dr. Chang is a problem solver. After another doctor prescribed PT that did not work for me, Dr. Chang prescribed a wrist brace. Within a few days, pain subsided. More recently, it was suggested I have surgery on my foot. Dr. Chang prescribed orthotics...problem solved.
