My first appointment with Dr Chang was excellent. He is very friendly and warm along with being thorough. Hopefully he will be able to solve my pain issues as well. Highly recommend him. His follow up office team is rather rude but other than that, the experience was excellent.

Dr. Chang is a superb physician who gives his best to his patients. I had a left shoulder injury resulting from a gym activity in which he provided numerous treatment options for. His knowledge in sports related and musculoskeletal injuries and treatment options is tremendous. One of his best unique characteristic as a physician is that he contacts you outside the office to keep track of your treatment. He has a great communication skill, as he responded all my emails within 24 hours.

Dr. Chang was very knowledgable about my condition and the procedures by which to try and treat it without surgical intervention. Through his guidance and physical therapy I've improved my condition considerably and couldn't be happier. He is very approachable, friendly and makes himself available to answer questions in and out of the office. I've told him again and again that he's the best care I've ever had.
