Dr Chung did my surgery for twisted intestines and he did it laparoscopic and the recovery was very easy. He was very helpful and made me feel very comfortable.

What an arrogant money-loving doctor

This doctor only cares about money. He suggested surgery for my condition. The diagnosis was correct, but he failed to mention there was a non surgical solution for my problem. I refused to go to surgery and asked for a second opinion. I am glad I did. In less than 4 weeks I was pain free and don't need surgery. Chung was focused on making money more than easing a patient's pain. I hate him. I was in so much pain and all he could say is to suffer through it until we can schedule a surgery. I guess that give me a lot of room to think clearly about my options, ha?
