    Just recently had an appointment with Dr. Chang and I hadn't seen him for over a year and he remembered everything we had spoke about, seems to be very intelligent and I have not had any surgery by him, but he seems very competent, which relieves a lot of stress about going forward with my surgery.

    I found Dr. Chang to be a first class physician - expected from one who is associated with OHSU. He manifested all of the best qualities I hope for in a physician. He listened. He explained. He put forth an understandable and reasonable plan for my treatment going forward.I note as well that he was approachable, honest and prepared. He fully met all of my expectations

    What can I say? Dr. Chang is simply the best there is, like all my PCPs and there providers at OHSU have been.

    Waist of time and money

  • Feb 02, 2019

    Dr. Chang was very professional, very clinical, but not very personable

  • Feb 01, 2019

    Dr. Jason Chang provides a complete analysis which he thoroughly develops and expresses by introducing data/evidence with explanation, discussion, Q/A, and final exploration of logical conclusion. He is a surgeon who is wants to consider all options of treatment with surgery as an option of last resort. After consulting Dr. Chang, my wife and I are confident in our chosen course of action. We respect and trust Dr. Chang.

    Dr. was wonderful. He made you feel like he had all day to talk to you. He made sure that we understood every aspect. There was no doubt for a minute that he cared about [Name]

  • Jan 16, 2019

    I think that Dr. Chang was pretty good. He listened to my concerns and what I was having problems with. He explained to me the type of work that he did. The VA sent me to the wrong doctor. So, but he was a pretty good. When I came in the office, the nurse asked me my height and weight instead of putting me on the scale and finding out the facts for herself, that kind of disturbed me. Other than that there was a pretty good fit.

  • Jan 15, 2019

    Love love love Dr Chang. He will listen to all your questions and concerns. I appreciate that he is direct with presenting the issues and treatment options, in addition to being very conservative in regard to surgery.
