I Had All But Forgotten How it Felt to Have Hope!

April 22, 2016

This could still be the pain and or meds talking but, one week post-surgery, I am man crushing on Dr Crandall. He is a confident Surgeon, and rightly so! Every medical professional he surrounds himself with have been nothing short of absolute professionals! Oasis hospital included! I firmly believe my meeting with Dr Crandall may have been divinely inspired. Either way, thank you Dr C for taking me on! I had all but forgotten how it felt to have hope!

Gifted Mind and Hands

February 27, 2016

Dr. Datta has a gifted mind and hands for identifying and correcting problem areas. He was highly recommended by family and friends. I had 3 professional opinions. His entire staff is top notch. After a serious hiking fall, I had a double back & double neck fusion. I researched all the area surgeons and switched insurance companies to have him operate on me. I have one more operation ahead of me and no fear knowing I am in good hands with him and his wonderful team.

Made Me Feel Like a Priority

February 10, 2016

Dear Dr. Crandall,

This letter is to thank your wonderful, amazing, professional team that have become like family to me over the past year and a half and two surgeries later.  From the first time I came to your practice Jeanne and Dr. Young have worked tirelessly to help correct a neck fusion gone wrong by another surgeon.  I had my final surgery December 29th and while I am still in the healing process I am feeling like a new person.

I have never worked with such an amazing duo who made me feel like a priority and important enough that I would get return phone calls the same day and many times within hours of the call.  Dr. Young made my parents and husband feel part of my care explaining in detail the course of treatment for my neck.  As a patient that is huge knowing your family feels peace.

I cannot thank Dr. Young enough.  He is an amazing surgeon who took a tough revision and brought me back to life.  I have given his name and business cards to my primary care who have been searching for better spine surgeons to work with.  I will continue to share his name and your practice for years to come.

I feel so blessed,

I have recommended Dr. Crowder to many people

February 09, 2016

I have recommended Dr. Crowder to many people, even if it is just for a consultation. He was one of the few doctors that would even look at my back because of a prior discectomy 20+ years before. My operation, although a long and difficult one, has given me back a bit of my life. I can sit longer now, I can walk longer, and I am not in so much pain. He is a great listener and if I still have questions he will sit there and wait until I am done asking.

On a scale of 1-10, he's a 20!

January 25, 2016

In my life time, I have had many, many surgeries, but have never experience the kindness and skill of Dr. Young. I am a heathcare professional and it is, indeed, rare to find such professional qualities as I found in Dr. Young. On a scale of 1-10, he's a 20!

I Didn't Realize How Much Pain I Was In

January 08, 2016

Dr Datta is tentative, courteous and sincerely concerned to your condition. He makes you feel welcome, he listens to your concerns and doesn't make you feel as if he's condescending. I didn't realize how much pain I was in until Dr Datta did my surgery. He's an excellent Dr that I'd highly recommend.

I Immediately Felt a Huge Pain Relief

November 16, 2015

To Whom It May Concern,
I have never written a letter like this but in late July 2015, I started suffering lower back pain and visited my Chiropractor on four occasions to no avail. The pain was immense so my primary care physician ordered an XRAY on my spine and it came back normal for a person of my age, 72. Three days later, I could not endure the pain and went to the Emergency Room at Desert Banner and a CT-Scan showed a compression fracture at T-12 but when the surgeon at Desert Banner realized all my pain was way down in my lower back, he hesitated on doing kyphoplasty and conservatively wanted to wait and possibly try some therapy and if no help, come back to see him. I was in extreme pain and immediately went back to my PCP, Dr. Carrington, who immediately had me go for an MRI that same day. It showed an acute compression fracture and he immediately contacted Sonoran Spine and Dr. Datta was able to see me the following day. He was fantastic and spent time explaining all the options to me. I told him that I could not tolerate a long wait as my pain was immense. He told me that he believed that my pain could be ‘referred pain’ and he believed the kyphoplasty would eliminate most of my pain but the decision was mine and did not pressure me. I asked him how soon he could perform the procedure and when he realized the pain I was experiencing, told me that if I could have the proper blood work completed, he would squeeze me in his schedule three days later on Friday, August 21st. I was elated and he performed kyphoplasty on the scheduled date and when I awoke from the surgery, I immediately felt a huge pain relief and will always remember him caring for me. Obviously, he is a skilled surgeon but he also displayed great bedside manner and was caring and I will always appreciate his unselfish professional manner explaining my options. He is a special compassionate talented surgeon and I want to thank Sonoran Spine for having such a fine doctor.

Angels of the Internet Sent me to Michael Chang, MD

August 31, 2015

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.

Much Needed Relief

August 17, 2015

Dr. Young,

I would like to thank you for your tender care I got with my neck issues. You’re the best. The last injection worked for a few weeks and brought some much needed relief. 

It is with sadness that I have to move from the valley to help care for my father who had a stroke at 90 years young. My neck still has its problems and I wish I could take you with me so I can complete the process. I know you would have figured it out in the end. We didn’t get our home run yet but we were getting close. Thank you again – I only hope to find another doctor in South Dakota that is half the doctor you are.
