What People Say About Dr. Crawford Chung, MD

My sister was referred to Dr. Chung by her internist for problems with breathing, swallowing and speaking in May 2016. Dr. Chung examined her briefly,did not order chest X-rays, and saw her again 3 weeks later. Again, he did not order chest X-rays but instead referred her to an ENT. One week later, we checked her into a hospital who responsibly took X-rays and to our horror she was diagnosed with lung cancer and died 11 days later. See my Yelp Review for the full review.

He isn't personable and lacks empathy for his patients. I don't feel he really cares for his patients. Staff is nicer and treats you better than him. Needed paperwork for school filled out-- he did the bare minimum and had to ask for him to re-do it. Also needed to show proof of immunity for school; he didn't inform me I am NOT immune until I found out LAST MINUTE and have to rush to get a booster. If you aren't proactive on your health, he does the bare minimum for you. Highly do NOT recommend!
