Patient Survey ReviewsLearn how patient feedback is cultivated
Dr. Chang has been taking care of my feet for eight years. I have had multiple problems that he has addressed successfully. Dr. Chang is professional and has a great bedside manner. I sense that he and his staff truly care. I am grateful to all that I have them to call on. I highly recommend this practice.
I am a returning patient and had been procrastinating about scheduling another appt but was driving by and pulled in on a whim to set up an appt in person. Luckily for me, there was an opening in an hour so I ran an errand and came back and saw the Dr. The appt went well and we ended up scheduling some minor in-office surgery for the next week. I was kind of expecting that and its probably why I had been procrastinating. The Dr described the procedure in just enough detail to reassure me without letting me chicken out. The fact that my wife had been witnessing my foot discomfort and had also urged me to schedule an appt, was of course, another factor in the decision. I have been pleased with the service from this office for the several years that I have been coming here. Pleasant. professional, and effective.
The doctor was personable which is an added plus. He explained my condition and treated the problem successfully. The pain is gone. I am greatly relieved that the problem can be treated.He is very careful and proficient in his work.
Great staff to work with. Helpful and friendly. Dr Chang has been amazing to work with and has helped to improve my problems with my Achilles tendinitis
Very positive all around experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful; seemed sincerely interested that my issues were resolved.
I have always received superior service from Doctors Murray and Chang and their entire staff. The new office is very nice as well.
Great Care and concern by Doctor and entire Staff in all respect of my visits. Thanks !
Everybody was super. I got lost driving to the appointment -- I was 15 minutes late. But the staff and Dr. Chang made heroic efforts to accommodate me and managed to give me as much time as I needed to understand the nature of the pain in one of my feet. The treatment was low-intervention (orthopedic inserts in my shoes), with the possibility of additional interventions if this did not prove satisfactory. I particularly liked the approachable demeanor of Dr. Chang and the way he carefully considered my questions. I will definitely stay with this practice.
the staff and doctor were very nice and friendly. took care of my problem quickly. a good experience. would highly recommend.
