Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hung "While most patients come to specialists like urologists for specific medical conditions, I try my best to treat the whole patient rather a singular urologic problem. And while I am a fellowship-trained robotic surgeon, not all urologic conditions require surgery; many can be treated successfully with lifestyle or behavior modifications or medical therapy."

Dr. Hung and his staff seem smug and and have not followed through on my care, appointment schedule, ordering diagnostic tests, etc. They are slow to respond and not willing to accommodate. I will be looking for another USC physician to take my case as soon as I am able.
