I would like to share with you why I chose medicine as a career. My father is a physician, so I was naturally intrigued with the possibility of making medicine my career. When I asked my father for advice, he strongly suggested that I consider specializing in something I was both very good at and that I enjoyed doing. I really enjoy physiatry, so I guess I’m following my dad’s advice.

I first saw Dr. Chang 14 years ago …I had nerve conduction studies, followed by 8 acupuncture treatments, and was pain-free after years of chronic sciatica back pain. I then joined a local fitness center to continue the healing, as I was actually able to exercise again! I have never even had to go back for any more treatments for that health problem! His gifts of healing, experience, and expertise have changed my life forever for the better! He is compassionate, caring, kind, thorough, and so intelligent.
Dr. Chang is fantastic!! I went to him for steroid injections and I was very nervous because the previous 3 times I had them done were with a different doctor at another facility and it was a terrible time and very painful. It was the complete opposite with Dr. Chang though. The whole experience was so much better and it was a lot less painful. Dr. Chang is very knowledgeable and you can tell he generally cares about his patients. I would recommend Dr. Chang to anyone!
I travel 6 hours to see Dr Chang because he is caring, knowledgeable, takes time to explain and makes sure I understand. Answers all questions I might have and I never feel rushed with him!
I had a very informative visit. He was very concerned and wanted to find the problem. I would recommend him very highly.
I’ve known Dr. Chang for some time now due to tests he has run for nerve conduction studies for other doctors @ O. I. Even when the test was uncomfortable, he made me laugh with his brilliant sense of humor and quick wit. I truly love this man, all medical genius aside. He’d be a welcome guest at my home and table any time. I can never thank him enough for all he’s done for me in my improvement of health over the years since my 3 head injuries, seizure disorders, 56 major operations and side effects which have come along with them. God bless him and his practice! He’s now working with me in pain relief. Ah…sweet sleep again!
