Dr. Chang was so knowledgeable and helpful. He did not dismiss my concerns due to my age (85). His mannerisms are so reassuring and he went above and beyond to provide recommendations for my dizziness and blurred vision. He recommended that I talk to my Internal Medicine doctor about seeing a neurologist. Also, the visit was very convenient as I live 60 miles west of Chicago. Please continue this service.
