      One of the best urologists I have ever seen. Dr. Chung efficiently and effectively treated my overactive bladder and uterine prolapse. Excellent bedside manner. Delivered medical advice with authority and empathy. Highly recommend.
      in New York, NY |
      Very thorough and attentive.
      in New York, NY |
      Horrible woman. Extremely obnoxious and aggressive, rude and rough. STAY AWAY!
      in Monroe, NY |
      I was told to see a different dr. in the office and not her but i saw her anyway. Big mistake. She was so mean and every time she disagreed with something i said or i disagreed with something she said (despite her admittance she had little experience with my problem) she would give a glance over to the NP in the room which is tantamount to the eye roll. I felt her completely uncaring and unsympathetic and very heavy handed when examining me (poking with extreme aggression) Very unsettling visit

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      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.
