Everything was ok until I agreed to let him do injections. I was hurt in an auto accident, and I will always believe that he made things worse for me, to where I will be in pain management for the rest of my life. When he did an MRI guided lower back injection, something went wrong and I firmly believe he hit an area he wasn't supposed to. My girlfriend who drove me there heard me scream in the waiting room. After the procedure, I had an absess the size of a golf ball in my lower back.

Actually, I saw Dr. Chang by mistake. I was in great pain, looking for a knee replacement. Dr. Chang saw me immediately that day. But he is a spinal surgeon. He listened to my complaint, looked at my knee and gave me the names of two knee doctors. I asked him if I should be wearing the back brace I had forgotten that day. He said not to wear it unless I was in bad pain and it helped. (It didn't). He was kind, understanding, and focused entirely on our conversation.

I don't like to recommend to other people. I made an appointment to see him based on his advertisement on line. But he told me he doesn't do the treatment he advertised.
