  • I am always anxious when I have to get a checkup. Dr, Chung knows this and he always explains very carefully what he is doing or looking for and why it is important to do what he is doing. He lets me know is a procedure will hurt and assures me he will be as gentle as possible. Hw gives me advice on what I can do to improve my health. He shows happiness when I report a success, like managing my weight. I have no doubt that Dr. Chung truly wants me to know that he understands my concerns and is helping me to deal with any anxiety that I may feel when he has to do a procedure or report something that may upset me. He tells me things to do to improve my health and support what he has done during a visit. He is always cheerful and optimistic.

    Dr. Chung is very caring and takes as much time as needed so that you understand your diagnosis and treatment plan. He has helped me through two bouts with cancer, always caring and concerned about the side effects of treatment. He personally calls you back if you have questions even on weekends also let’s you know results of labs. His office staff is the most caring and friendly staff I have met!

    Very nice staff and doctor, always get taken in very fast, no waiting time at all, very very happy with my visits to dr chung.
