Don't bother with this doctor or group

I rated Change 1 star only because there was no option to rate "negative stars". Chang is probably the worse doctor I've had the displeasure of meeting. In the middle of describing my symptoms, Chang simply turns and starts to walk out of the room. When I explain that I think it would be important that he hear all of what transpired before I threw out my back he replies sarcastically, "fine, I'll sit and hear the rest of your saga". Are you freaking kidding me!?!?!? Maybe Chang should seek another line of work if he doesn't want to take the time to, at the very least, listen to what his patients are saying about their symptoms. Other than the x-ray technician (who was very nice), the rest of the group acted as though they were doing you a favor by scheduling you or even seeing you.

Avoid This Doctor

Dr. Chang should not be allowed to practice medicine. No matter how serious is your injury, he would not give you a prescription for MRI (till you visit him 3 times and pay consultation fee 3 times). No sense of urgency to help and treat patient. He will drag on so he can make more money. My daughter had a torn ligament in her leg, this doctor kept insisting on follow up appointments with giving a prescription for MRI. Finally he gave prescription after 3 months. Still untreated high-tear ligament that resulted in reactive edema was not a serious condition. After 3 months of pain, I took my daughter to another doctor. Do not bother visiting/consulting him. You will be wasting your time, money and prolonging your misery, if you visit Dr. Chang.

One Star

My husband had blood clots as a result from this surgery. We were not informed of the severity of the surgery nor the consequenses that resulted from the blood clots that have damanaged his heart and lungs. I hold him responsible for lack of communication and brushing off our concerns before and after surgery.
