Have you seen Dr. Harold Chung?

I was afraid, very afraid. I wasn't sure what to expect from the chemotherapy let alone the bone marrow transplant. Dr. Chung saw that within the first 5 minutes of my first consultation with him so he took a step back and talked to me about other things and made me realize the reasons we go through therapy in the first place. We were able to continue with our discussion about treatment options and what to expect. What surprised me again was his compassion and he (and his BMT coordinator Judy) went out of his way to find a patient with a similar disease and stage to call me at my home and talk to me and give me their perspective from a patient standpoint which helped me tremendously. I'm glad I made that decision to forward... it's been 5.5 years since my transplant and I have not regretted that decision one bit.
He was very reassuring

We were terrified. We just got the diagnosis of leukemia from our long-term family doctor. We were referred to an oncologist but were still very confused and scared. We talked to some friends who recommended Dr. Chung for a second opinion. And we were so glad we did. Dr. Chung got us in and sat down with us and went through the diagnosis, treatment options and then his recommendations based on our situation but also our family needs and concerns. Highly recommend him even if it's just to talk and get some understanding of your cancer.
Eased my mind

I was in dire straits. I just got a lot of bad news from my primary care doctor and met with a popular but busy oncologist who said I needed a bone marrow transplant. I was scared about that consult but I met with Dr. Chung and he put me, my wife and my daughter at ease about the process. He took the time to explain things, made sure we had our questions answered and even drew up a care plan of how things were going to go. I'm happy to say that everything has gone well and I couldn't be happier... both my transplant is done and Dr. Chung made every bit of a difference for all of my family and me.

Dr Chung is very knowledgeable in his field, but also is one of the most compassionate physicians I've ever encountered. He educates you and answers your questions in a way that the average patient can understand.

Great experience. I was nervous as can be about my cancer. My friend works at MCV Hospitals and recommended Dr. Chung for a second opinion, and I'm glad I did! He saw me, reviewed everything that had been done and explained everything in the workup so far. He was able to go over a plan of care and I have been doing well ever since. And that was 3 years ago!
I trust him

I'm usually suspicious of the health care system sometimes, probably something to do with my past dealings. I was backed in to a corner and needed a second opinion. I was ready... and so was Dr. Chung. We talked for a good long while and after my first barrage of questions, I knew he was the one for me. I transferred my care... the transplant did not take as long as I thought it would. I was even surprised when Dr. Chung sat down with me one afternoon and announced they were done... the transplant process was complete and I was back in remission and ready to go on with my life again. I can't thank him enough... but more so just putting me at ease with the idea of transplant. Thank you, Sir.

Most impressive. I had aggressive myeloma and thought I had done my homework before coming in to discuss options. Dr. Chung sat with me and my family to discuss many options and I came away with a much better understanding and relief that we were able to draw out a treatment plan. And that was 6 years ago and I'm still doing well... and at 73, still shooting in the 80's on my favorite golf course.

I was panicked with fear with newly diagnosed cancer. I went to see Dr. Chung as advised by a friend of mine who had taken care of by him years ago. Dr. Chung made me feel at ease. He sat down with me to discuss my diagnosis, go over the possible options and we chose a plan that was tailored to my needs (somewhat) and I am now 4 years out and cancer free!
