Patient Comments (4)
Glade Hill, VA |
Dr Ung helped me get significant pain relief and I'm confident he is a concerned care giver. However, the level of incompetence by his office staff is nothing short of amazing. On multiple occasions we had to cancel and reschedule procedures because his office staff had not contacted my insurance co for approval.
in Bassett, VA |
Dr. Ung put me at ease almost as soon as he walked in the room. He has a calming presence and a very friendly yet professional bedside manner. After years of suffering with degenerative bone disease in my neck and almost no relief at the Veteran's hospital, Dr. Ung's treatment all but alleviated the pain within just a couple of days, and it lasted almost six months. If the V.A. will once again approve it, I am hoping to return to Dr. Ung for further treatment in the near future.

He has always been very professional and cares about my health and the best option for me as a patient. I followed him from Carilion.

He is an amazing doctor. Explains everything throughout every procedure even if you've been through it many times. He truly cares about his patients and understands how life altering living with certain levels of pain can be.
