While we will provide you excellent medical care, we strive to see you as much more than a patient. We take into account your individual and family needs as we create your treatment plan.

The entire office are friendly and so attentive. Dr. Chung and staff spent lots of time getting my history and talking with about my problem. I am so happy with the results and would recommend her to anyone.
in Birmingham, AL |
Dr. Chung is very knowledgable, professional, and personable. I took my daughter to her for a second opinion, and I am so glad I did! She took great care of her and really took the time to review her records with us , and made very appropriate recommendations. The office staff is very helpful and friendly, too. We couldn't be happier!

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Chung's Care Philosophy

As a Board-Certified Allergist, I love taking care of the family unit & educating kids and adults about their allergies, asthma, recurrent infections & hives or eczema. Since allergies run in the family & can affect multiple body areas, visiting our allergy/immunology practice allows a family to see a single doctor who can teach them how to care for their nose, eyes, ears, sinuses, skin, gut & lungs, while improving their quality of life in ways they had no idea was even possible!
