    I cannot speak highly enough about Dr.Chung. My experience was not bariatric but emergency life saving surgery. His experience and expertise enabled him to operate via laparoscopy instead of traditional open methods. My recovery was so much easier. His confidence is comforting, his demeanor is engaging and disarming. I found him to be straightforward, compassionate and kind. I thank God every day he was on duty when I arrived at the ER.
