Specialties

Dr. Jeff Chung has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Super knowledgeable doctor who can relate to the patient on their level

Having a consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Chung was one of the best decisions of my life. He meticulously reviewed my records, accurately assessed my health, and calmed my worst fears. He is super intelligent, has a great bedside manner, is sensible, and discusses issues in layman's terms. I highly recommend him. His office staff is nice too. I traveled more than I normally do to see him because of other reviewers and I am so happy I did. I would definitely go to him again if needed.

Dr. Chung is the best doctor I've ever had. He's kind, patient, thorough and genuinely cares about his patients. He'll take the time to answer your questions thoroughly and also asks a lot of questions to make sure you're taking good care of yourself. I've been seeing him for almost two years now, and he really does build a relationship with his patients. Every appointment, I'm amazed at what a wonderful doctor he is. I know I'm in good hands and will continue to see Dr. Chung for as long as I can.

Smart compassionate doctor

He is very patient and spends a lot of time with me. Answers my questions and concerns about my diagnosis and treatments. Has worked with me to find best way to manage my pain. Does not dismiss your pain. He is very respectful. He is very soft spoken and doesn't display doctor/god ego attitude displayed by some other doctors I've tried. He returns phone call even though he is very busy. It can be hard to get an appointment with him because he is very good, but he is available in 2 offices that are in convenient locations on opposite sides of Bergen Co. There can be a bit of a wait, especially evening hours. The staff is friendly, but have had some miss communication when it comes to relaying messages and medication prior-auth. It was a little frustrating. The problem was worked out, but the process was longer and required many phone calls on my part to resolve.

Incompetence and non-professional!

Completely disregard patients even if they are in great pain. He does not follow up with patients. Can never reach him with any questions. His nurse, Cathy, does not treat patient with any professional courtesy. She refers to a patient as ridiculous and tells the patient to go see another physician!
