    How was your appointment with Dr. Chung?

    Jun 10, 2021
    Dr. Chung is caring, compassionate and hears what you say when you bring a concern or worry to her about the procedure or treatment needed. She goes out of her way to ensure you understand everything. Following surgical procedure, she again, is totally available for not only you, the patient, but the family members as well. She literally saved my life during an unexpected finding in my surgery and I will be forever grateful for her expertise, wisdom, and post-op care. I'm in the medical field and she is one of the best surgeons I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Highly recommend her!
