Dr. Albert Chung is an incredible doctor and surgeon. While my experiences with similar physicians left a lot to be desired, it is evident Dr. Chung has chosen to be a doctor who emphasizes on complete, thoroughly informative and compassionate care. He has remarkable expertise as well, and I cannot recommend him enough.   I was initially concerned that he was out-of-network, however, that was quickly resolved when I found his fees were extremely reasonable for the extent of care provided and absolutely worth it.  When you consider the time and energy one typically expends to go through a series of appointments, dealing with various internists and specialists, and often times, the outcome doesn’t yield a *real* solution, the choice is clear.  It is now a month after my procedure and I cannot believe how much my life has improved for the better. Dr. Chung has been completely accessible to me from start to finish. I continue to be impressed with the level after care provided too

I recently went to see Dr Chung regarding a medical concern. I could not be happier, especially given my circumstance. He provided me a lot of information over the phone and was able to get me into his office same day! Dr Chung has an unconventional approach to medical care - and the overarching theme is “he is personable”! He also has a good, subtle sense of humor, which helped put me at ease. I opted to go with a procedure in office. Needless to say, I’m very nervous of needles - but Dr Chung explained every step to make sure I was comfortable. His help has put me on a fast track to recovery - and to get back to a normal life. Dr Chung is not like other doctors... he’s actually what ALL doctors should aspire to be! Even though he was “out of network”, the cost was relatively low. He has low overhead, which allows him to avoid the “patient-mill” feel of other doctor offices. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr Chung!

Because of a nearly two-month wait to see my previous colorectal guy over at UCI, I thought I'd take a chance on Dr. Chung even though he is an out of network provider who doesn't take insurance. Wow--what a difference working with someone who isn't rushing to get you in and out, or making you wait for an hour in the waiting room and another hour in the exam room. Dr. Chung was extremely punctual (he only schedules one patient at a time in lengthy time blocks) went over my previous history with me, performed an exam, diagnosed a problem I was unaware of and had mis-self-diagnosed, discussed options, and suggested some behavioral changes in an attempt to alleviate the problem. He did suggest an in-office procedure (no surgery) that we're holding off on as I'm not in extreme discomfort. Anyway I found Dr. Chung very thoughtful, friendly, a good listener, and knowledgeable, taking the time to explain the problem and what to try and do about it. Highly recommended.

I have visited Dr. Chung at End of October due to my severe both external and internal hemorrhoids. He is very knowledgeable and experienced rectum surgeon. I was able to get a surgery right away. The hemorrhoids procedure was so successful that I have been fully recovered in a short time. Besides, he really takes care of his patients and offers all the post-surgery checks free. I would highly recommend Dr. Chung for such surgery procedure.

Was not set up with Blue Cross when I saw him in June, his recommendation was to treat me as in network so all I had to pay was my co-pay. Paid that and got a bill for office visit and he's backtracking, saying he never agreed to that. I could have chosen any other colorectal surgeon in my network and only paid my copay but he was recommended to me by my primary. Not very honest, beware!
