Five Stars

Dr. Chung is the most direct, capable and sensitive doctor we could have asked for, having a very difficult diagnosis and difficult choices to make. He is unsurpassed in his surgical skills as the successful and fast recovery proved. He is as caring a doctor as he is adept in his medical knowledge and skills.

Fantastic Urologist

I cannot begin to say enough great things about Dr. Simon Chung. He was recommended by a friend, for whom I am forever grateful. Two years ago a spot is accidentally found on my right kidney. After going to several doctors who eventually were only interested in removing the entire kidney, my husband and I went to Dr. Chung. After the first consultation with him, we both knew we were finally in the right place! Dr. Chung explained options that included a biopsy, cryoblation and partial nephrectomy. We agreed to the latter option, which was beautifully performed by Dr. Chung and 90% of my kidney was left intact! Dr. Chung is a cut above the rest in his knowledge and skills along with his ability to share them with this patients. He has an outstanding reputation, respects for the patient's time, is attentive and caring and he listens. One cannot possibly go wrong with Simon Chung as their urologist. If I could give him higher than a 5-star rating, I most assuredly would!!!

The best urologist in Northern Virginia

I saw Dr. Chung for my prostate cancer few months ago and he performed the robotic laparoscopic prostatectomy on me. Throughout my care, Dr. Chung, his medical team, and office staff were always very professional and caring. I had few complications right after the surgery and Dr. Chung and his medical team took a great care of me at Fairfax Hospital and made my healing process so much easier and faster than I thought it would be . I just went back to Dr. Chung's office for a follow up visit and my PSA is down to zero. He's a great doctor, he genuinely treated me as a family member and gained my trust and respect. I would recommend him to anyone that's looking for the best urologist in Northern Virginia

Wonderful Urologist-Worth any wait

Very much appreciated Dr. Chung's candor. He recommended another doctor for a possible chryoablation (kidney freezing), and I am going back to Dr. Chung to get his opinion about the next course of treatment because my husband and I like and respect him that much!
