    How was your appointment with Dr. Chang?

    Mar 07, 2023
    About the beginning of July 2020 I was brought to SIUH to consult with Dr.Chang. I was literally carried in to the hospital by EMS. I had become so disabled by a work accident I could barely get up and move . I ws 2days away from being paralyzed from the neck down and had given up hope of leading a normal life. Dr.Chang agreed to operate . Within 1day of the surgery I was up and walking,a miracle to me. It’s been 2 and a half years and with some rehab I have gained about 90 percent of normal function back.Words cannot express my appreciation for all he did for me and am very grateful to him.
