Dr Chunn was a very rude and arrogant man cared nothing about me that I had lost over 80 lbs his response was " but you still really big" I had no other choice but to use him as my surgeon for a pennictomy because of my insurance. He did a good job surgery wise but is not very friendly makes you feel like your scum and he doesn't want to touch you almost like you have the plague. After I left the first consolation I was in tears. I was doing good the first 3 weeks after surgery but then I started running a low grade fever and feeling horrible I told the nurse and dr Chunn about this the nurse came in took my temp with one of those rolling thermometers that goes acrossed ur forehead and it said it was normal so I went home he just brushed it off well a week later I was leaking/ draining around several areas of my incisions and I thought I was going to die. Running temp of 102.8 so I finally called back and they called me in antibiotics and I started feeling better but my incisions are still leaking and he says that's normal and I don't think so. No bedside manner at all.
Dr. Chun is a God Send! Due to a diagnosis of breast cancer I had a bilateral mastectomy in 2012 with immediate reconstruction. I healed quickly and the scars are hardly even visible 3 years later. Dr. Chun is absolutely top notch as far as making sure to explain all steps of the procedure prior to surgery. I just saw him today for my annual follow-up and I think the world of him! As I said ... He is a God send!
