Specialties

Dr. Chun Hwang has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

    While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
    They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.

Back in 2001 I was suffering from heart palpitations, which would bring on shortness of breath & dizziness. This would happen 10 to 20 times a day, lasting anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes to an hour or longer. A lot of times I woke up with these symptoms & would still be feeling the same way by the time I went to bed at night. This went on for months until I finally decided to see a cardiologist. I don't know why I waited so long to have it checked out, it was foolish to wait so long. I'm glad I finally went & saw Dr. Chun Hwang. After seeing him & undergoing some tests, he diagnosed me with SVT (supraventricular tachycardia). The treatment for my particular case was to have a surgical ablation. He is an excellent doctor with a great bed side manner. I had heard so many people talk about what a great doctor he was & I too can now say the same. It's nice to know there are good doctors that we can go to. Dr. Chun Hwang is a great doctor & I would go back to him if I needed to see a cardiologist again.

Will not listen to patients

He is so busy he will not listen to a patient. He is always trying to get out of the room. I had a change in my condition. He would not listen to me. He literally would not allow me to speak. I went to the university of Utah where they found a major problem.

Dr. Chun Hwang knows the heart and how it is supposed to function. There are very few heart doctors that know the heart like Dr. Hwang. I feel that he is a very gifted and is guided by a higher source than we as humans can understand.

I am in such better condition since Dr. Whang has fixed my heart! I am very grateful for his expertise. I would strongly recommend him to anyone experiencing heart problems. He knows what he is doing. I have seen two other Heart doctors in the past and they don't measure up to his standards.

This physician is EXCELLENT! They don't come any better. This is why he is so busy. The wait doesn't bother me. He is ALWAYS helping someone, and he gives the time to the patient that the patient needs. Appointments are booked months in advance.
