I am so grateful and fortunate to have found you

Dr. Chang,

How can I tell you how thankful I am. First, this surgery seemed so unfathomable to me. Second, that I would come out of it with all of my body parts working and my back so much straighter! Yet to you there was no doubt and such confidence. You have an amazing talent and I am so grateful and fortunate to have found you and have you as my surgeon.

And thanks to all of your team!

Blessings to you!
K.B.

Angels of the Internet Sent me to Michael Chang, MD

I had spinal stenosis surgery back in 2008 that lasted until this year 2015 when my back was always in extreme pain. I got by increasing my Celebrex dosage to two a day that worked but I know it was getting worse. I went in search of a new doctor since I wasn't to happy with the last place I went to. I would have a 1:00 pm appt. and if I was lucky I would get in by 2:30. I had the same experience trying to get refills on my prescriptions. I couldn't be happier when the angels of the internet sent me to Dr. Michael Chang. He looked at my MRI and told me that it looked like a jig saw puzzle with pieces missing. He ran every kind of pre-surgical testing and set up the surgery for July 28, 2015. I went to Scottsdale Healthcare on Shea at 5:30 am. He was right that I wouldn't like him after the surgery. The surgery in 2008 I was pretty much running around after 4 weeks but this one was so much more involved. My itemized bill from the hospital told me that they used 120 parts in my surgery, I have a feeling the airline security is not going to like me anymore. Well here I am 1 month plus 3 days out, I still have quite a bit of pain but working with my therapist its coming around. He thinks I will be getting rid of the walker in the next week. I see Dr. Chang on Sept. 9 which is my first visit since the surgery. I'm hoping that I can walk in without the walker. I'm hoping that I will soon be back on the floor playing with my dog and grandchildren. They told me 3 months with a lot of restrictions then they will begin to lighten, I will listen to them and follow the rules because I don't want to see pain ever come back. Thank you Dr. Chang and your wonderful staff.

Never Say it Can't Be Done

I have had three previous spinal surgeries between 2007 and 2009. Each surgeon told me that their corrections were the very best and THAT there was very little hope I would walk or stand upright ever again. They were so wrong. Dr. Chang gave me those two gifts, standing and walking. He is mine and my family's hero!!!

Gave Me and My Family Back My Lifestyle

I currently work for the Fire Department and my quality of life before my injury was very active. I hiked, biked, fished, went to the gym, golfed, and spent many days with my kids teaching softball, volleyball, and raising animals. I injured my lower back leaving me with severe nerve tension and electric pain down my left leg. I could barely stand, walk, or even sit for a long period. My life was miserable and depression started to kick in. I was consuming over the counter pain relief medications just to get through each day and remained on our couch for several months. My position of comfort was legs lifted on the arm rest of our couch and my back on the seat cushion. Ice packs and heat treatments seemed to make some of the pain go away.

During this miserable experience, I encountered 3 epidurals and probably consumed 2 prescriptions of ibuprophen without any relief. Now you can predict what changes my health was making…. YES, 20 pounds heavier from the steroid injections and not being active at all!

AMAZING IMPROVEMENT AND DRAMATIC REDUCTION IN SYMPTOMS

Dear Dr. Chang,

Please accept from a fellow surgeon, my highest demonstration of respect and salutation.

In less than two weeks since her spine surgery, my wife, is having an amazing improvement in her exercise tolerance and a dramatic reduction in her symptoms.

She has conveyed to me that your reassuring personality is the equal to your outstanding training. Please relay our sincere gratitude to your entire staff in the clinic and at St. Joseph Hospital. I look forward to finally having the honor to meet you during her post-operative visits.

Very truly yours,
-P.M.

THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT CARE I HAVE RECEIVED

I don't know if this is the proper venue on your website to express my thanks to Dr. Chang and his staff for the excellent care and consideration I have received, and continue to receive, following my lumbar spine fusion on February 5th.

Everyone I came into contact with at Sonoran Spine in Mesa before, during and after my surgery have been wonderful people to work with.

The professionalism and courtesy with which everyone from the front office through to Dr. Chang, have been first class.

I would like to especially thank Pierre, Dr. Chang's Medical Assistant, who has been, and continues to be, extremely responsive to my various post-surgical inquiries and requests.

I will without a doubt recommend Sonoran Spine to any of my friends or family who may need spinal surgery in the future.

Thanks again to all of your staff.

-D.K.
