A patient wrote this about Tony Chang:
I started seeing Dr. Tony Chang at Shasta orthopedic a year ago. Over the last year I have received amazing care. He is great with cortisone shots that are almost pain free. He is a wonderful hands on Orthopedic doctor who truly cares about his patients. He also has a chiropractor, podiatrist, x ray, MRI and a pharmacy on site.
Dr Tony Chang will be at the Redding Rodeo with full medical care. For those of you who are participating in the Redding Rodeo stop in and meet a great doctor in person. From somebody who is squeamish about needles and doctors Dr. Chang always makes me feel at ease. He is the best in Redding. He is near Shasta Regional Hospital on Liberty.”
