Specialties

Dr. Mathew H Chung has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgical Oncology

    Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
    Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Whipple Surgery

I was sent to Dr Chung for some follow up about a mass. Prior to seeing him he orders a CT Scan. Day of Visit Dr. Chung took time to explain why I was there for my first issue only to tell me that was no long a concern because of the CT scan they found a gastrointestinal stromal tumor. He explained what it was and the next required steps. He took the time to answer our questions and made sure we understood. The staff was very friendly and helpful when we had questions or appointments. Prior to my surgery we seen Dr Chung at an event and said hello and asked him if we could ask a quick question and he said yes and we ended up talking for a long period of time (more then he had to.) During my hospital recovery Dr. Chung and or his staff stopped by everyday to check in on me and see how I was doing. After discharge, I was scheduled follow up appointments, the staff made sure I was comfortable and scheduled me with little to no wait time.
