Patient Comments (5)
Dr Chyung has accommodated me because I live out of state where I do not have easy. a specialist I trust as much. Since we visit San Diego many times a year, I have established a relationship with him. Both times I have seen him he spent plenty of time listening, answering questions and providing feedback. He seems to be a gentle and thoughtful person and he called me personally to follow up on two occasions.

Dr. Chyung is one of the most uncaring and arrogant physicians I have met. I don't know why he is in this profession, because he does not care about your wellbeing, and has no people skills whatsoever. He prescribed medications twice that did not work, did not get back to me with test results, and when I tried to call him in an emergency situation (strong pain), he did not bother to call me back. He also did not write a prescription he promised, so I had to call his office for two weeks.

Dr. Chyung is a highly intelligent yet compassionate doctor. His communication skills are great! He throughly explains things and is very positive and is listens intently.

Dr Chyung seems well qualified, but his bedside manner and judgment leave much to be desired.

After seeing another neurologist at Torrey Pines, I was advised to see Dr. Chyung. Right from the start, Dr. Chyung showed me that he was better versed in my condition. He took his time and explained what was going on what could have caused it and what the treatment was that was best for me. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Chyung. He has been the best ever!!!! Dr. Chyung takes his time in listening and answering my questions. I do not feel hurried in the least.
