Dr. Chung is a total professional. He spent the time answering all of my questions and giving me surgical alternatives. He never was rushed in his approach and treated me as if he had known me for a long time. If anyone needs a caring surgeon Dr. Chung is the one to go to.

Dr Chung in my opinion is the best surgeon that I have the pleasure to meet. He explains things in a manner that the patient can understand, very friendly and to the point. I would recommend him to everyone.

My experience with Dr Chung has been excellent. He performed my partial lung removal and follow-up visits. He was also personally recommended by one of my other surgeons to perform follow-up procedures after that surgeon relocated.

Absolutely the best. Service, treatment by staff. Dr, Chung performed my lung surgery for stage 1 cancer 3 years ago. Fabulous surgeon.

I am so pleased with the professionalism, compassion and attention given to the patient by Dr. Chung and all the staff. It is the first time that I've felt this way about any medical services being provided to me.

We were looking for a thoracic surgeon to remove an adenocarcinoma from my upper left lobe, and had met with other surgeons, prior to Dr. Chung. When we met with Dr Chung, and were immediately impressed by his compassion, as well as his ability to clearly explain the procedure, including any risks that are involved. His office staff is efficient and informative. One month later, and I am now two weeks post surgery, and very happy that we chose Dr. Chung. We highly recommend him.

I was referred to Dr Chung from the folks at Mountain View ER. So glad to have found him and his expert staff. Everyone in the office is both kind and professional. Being new to the Las Vegas area, we have had problems finding doctors. That has all changed for the better.

Great experience with Dr. Chung. My girlfriend developed a unique kind of lung cancer. His office staff got us in immediately for a consult. Dr. Chung was very thorough and informative, just plain awesome throughout the whole process, start to finish. His office staff is very thorough. Couldn't ask for more, highly recommend.

In my 70 th year in life, Dr Chung is a blessing and a revalation. He has changed my fear for uncaring, careless doctors. Dr. Chung suffice to say personally cares for his patients, follows up with them. always for patients best interest, and welfare, even answers patients phone call....so unlikely happening this days. Dr. Chung is a gift and I trust him with my life. His staff are just as good and efficient. His office is a happy smiley place. Rare to find and feel in any doctors offices.
Henderson, NV |
Although to this point I've only had one visit to Dr. Chung, which was an initial appointment, I was impressed with his demeanor and the degree to which he explained a surgical procedure to me that I had no problem understanding. This alone was a big plus. I have another appointment with Dr. Chung in the very near future to make a surgical decision and I'm confident that appointment will be just as good as the first.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Office visit was a breeze and was able to get appointment on short notice. Office staff was efficient and attentive to our needs. They also had fresh coffee, can't remember last time that happened. I can't say enough positive about Dr. Chung. He was thorough in his analysis and I felt he was really concerned about my well being and not just trying to run up the charges, as too many doctors do nowadays. Actually look forward to seeing him again.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Chung is an exceptional surgeon and has excellent bedside manner. He truly cares about his patients and it shows in his compassion towards them. He took the time to review my medical records and give me honest options. I highly recommend him. His staff also provided me with the same level of excellent care and treatment. Thank you Dr. Chung for everything you did for me.

There is simply no better doctor than Arnold Chung. His surgical skill and expertise is exceeded only by his extraordinary care for his patients and their families. It is no exaggeration when I say that he made a difference for me and my family; he literally saved my life.
in LV, NV |
Dr Chung saved my life! I had stage II cancer. After finishing chemo and radiation, he performed a esophagectomy (removed esophagus and part of stomach) surgery. I had no major complications. Before deciding to select him as my surgeon, my husband and I met with him a couple times. I immediately trusted him and had confidence in him! He is very personable and likable! It has been two months since my surgery and I am making excellent progress recovering from the complicated surgery! Caroline
