"Dr. Chang has the ideal personality to be a surgeon. He's clear and he makes feel at ease, always. Once I told him there was something "saintly" about him. My last appointment with him, we basically had a friendly talk about my back surgery. He gave me my time, as he made sure I understood every single thing, involved with my procedure. He gave me realistic hope and the day of my surgery I felt like I was in the best possible hands!!! I absolutely love DR. CHANG - I hope he lives a long life!!!"
