Dr Chung is a good Doctor, unfortunately with arrogant front desk staff. The office has no compassion and does not attend to basic issue and his staff has full control of his practice. It is my impression that his office Manager will destroy his practice in the near future. He is not aware of the lack of compassion that his patients receive over the phone. My impression is that , at some point i truly believe his front desk people have worked in government office and should not be in the medical business. Good Dr with a good heart , but poor vision and staffing.

Good Doctor but needs better staff

This doctor is excellent with his bedside manner. He takes time but sometimes to much time with his patients. I have waited for 4 hours. He is a great doctor so I keep coming back. He needs more staff or better staff. He was looking through my folder and couldn't find anything. Nothing was in order. His secretary spends to much time on the phone. The files should be indexed, in order, something to help the visit go smoothly. The doctor flipping back and forth thru the file trying to find the right paperwork. He is a great doctor and I love him much, but that does not change the fact that he is so out of order.
