Dr. Chang specializes in chronic pain management and employs a multi-modal approach to pain management specializing in minimally invasive interventional treatment, functional therapies, and medication management that is designed to help reduce pain, minimize the burden of medications, and improve function to maximize the quality of life.
He likes to maintain an active life after the work day ends. Playing and watching sports–mainly tennis, football, and basketball–is a passion. He was a member of the Johns Hopkins University varsity tennis team while earning dual bachelor degrees. He enjoys traveling with his wife, but also relaxing on the couch with their dog.
Why did you decide to become a physician?
I decided to become a pain physician because it gives me the opportunity to care for patients who have suffered with chronic pain, and help them gain back a more functional life.
