I saw Dr.Chung in august for a prolapse surgery. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Chung. She is the ultimate professional while being extremely cognoscent of her patients’ fears and concerns.She is one doctor that a person can trust to do the job and care about the patient for months afterword

I am so happy that I found Dr. Chung. I had seen several urologists about my enlarged prostate issues and no one was able to help me. Finally Dr. Chung did a special laser prostate surgery and I am cured! I am urinating like a 25 year old. She was excellent at explaining the procedure to me and what to expect afterwards. I am so grateful.

5 stars for Dr. Chung. She's smart, kind and a careful surgeon. She might be late for your appt because she takes more time with her patients, so bring a book. She won't prescribe antibiotics unless they're absolutely necessary. She also accepts as many kinds of insurance as she can (including our limited one) because she believes docs shouldn't only treat the well-off. This is a hard time to be a doctor and I so appreciate her. The staff at Allen is also terrific.

Dr. Chung did surgery on me in May 2018 and my recovery has been phenomenal. I have had a few follow up appointments and everything is still going well. I have just recommended my mother to her as well. I love Dr. Chung, office is always willing to help with any questions and if she isn’t currently available - someone will call you back with an answer. For any urology issues, SHE IS THE ONE ! I’m called within 10 minutes of being in the office!!!!

I saw Dr Chung for an enlarged prostate that was affecting urine flow and emptying bladder. Dr Chung ran multiple tests to diagnos my condition in order to determine the appropriate treatment . I elected to undergo laser evaporation of my prostate and due to a rare anatomical condition was recommended to undergo a second surgical procedure . Thanks to Dr Chung my quality of life has dramatically improved . I highly recommend her to anyone who is need of a skilled and caring Doctor.

if u have a day to spend in a waiting room, by all means schedule an appointment. I waited for 2 1/2 hrs & there were still 2 patients ahead of me!! My appointment was at the Allen hospital. I don’t know how 168 st is. Her staff wasn’t great either. Quite curt! I left & did not see the doctor.

Dr. Chung has been our Urologist for 4 years during the most challenging period we have faced regarding urological health concerns including bladder issues, kidney issues, and the treatment of infections that required hospitalizations, Dr. Chung has been our trusted provider and surrogate family member. Dr. Chung is highly skilled and has performed various surgical procedures for us. Her advice and explanations are always conducted patiently, empathetically, and using understandable language.

I had an enlarged prostate and could only urinate by shoving a catheter into my urethra. Dr. Chung gave me several diagnostic tests and then performed surgery to ridicule the size of my prostate. She did an excellent job and the surgery was successful. Dr. Chung is also a kind, compassionate person with an excellent bedside manner.

I was pleased with my experience with Dr Chung. She was very informative with my diagnosis, explaining in layman terms so I wouldn't get lost in medical jargon. You can tell she cares with the questions she asks to get the appropriate tests performed as to not just send you to get tests done for the sake of getting tests done.

Great doctor and very talented surgeon. My uncle had a major prostate problem which was misdiagnosed and improperly treated at a fancy hospital on the Upper East Side who told him he might have to live the rest of his life with a catheter in his bladder. We insisted he go to Columbia where he was lucky enough to meet Dr. Chung. She carefully explained his options and did a fantastic job. He can now pass urine without a catheter with no incontinence or sexual side effects. Thank you!!

Dr. Chung is an AMAZING urologist. Actually she is the urologist other urologist would go to, so I've been told. She is kind, patient, intelligent, and just a fantastic surgeon. I have nothing but the best things to say about her. I'm extremely happy with the care I received and would recommend her in a heartbeat.

I love Dr. Chung. She fixed my prolapse and incontinence and my quality of life is so much improved. She has excellent bedside manner and explained to me in detail what to expect before surgery. She was very thorough and answered all my questions. The surgery itself was so much easier than I thought it would be. All the staff at the office and hospital were lovely as well.

Be careful when visiting this doctor. She is not good. All she matters is about money. About a year ago, I went to see her by recommendation of another female physician. After a bunch of exams, she did a cystoscopy on me and I got an infection by the use of the catheter. She prescribed antibiotics. I suffer from enlarged prostate. The funny thing is that this doctor is supposed to be a urologist and the first prescription she wrote was Ranitidine 150 mg. This medication is for stomach problems
