Generic neurologist. Only equipped for typical headaches. They did not discuss important test results. They ignored the multiple neurological symptoms I experienced after a brain injury from a car accident. I would not recommend this doctor.

Do not go to Dr. Kung waste of money does nothing,and does not even listen to your problem. Went there after my family Doctor recomanded him after I got out of the hospital and it was a waste of my time and money I needed to go to another neurologist.

Very disappointed by the care I received from Dr. Kung. He spent less than 7 minutes with me and seemed to only be half listening to my symptoms. He told me that I needed an MRI which cost over $3000 then never followed up with the results. When I called him to discuss the results, his staff said he was too busy to call back as he sees 24 patients a day.

I met Dr. Kung when I had been hit by another car on I-95 and was suffering severely. Between the physical pain, psychological pain and fear of the unknown I felt alone and had no hope. Dr. Kung distinguished himself to me as a truly caring & compassionate man. His bedside manner was friendly and trusting and is always reachable for his patients. Without Dr. Kung's medical care I don't know where I'd be today, if I'd even be alive. Dr Kung is by far the best physician I've even been seen by.

Hands down rudest doctor I have ever seen. He throws medication darts at problems to see if they fit. Condescending in the extreme and does not care about his patients. I wish I could give fewer then one star.

Dr. Kung is thorough, smart & extremely knowledgable about migraine. I've had migraines since I was 8, so I've seen a lot of doctors. Most are content to write a prescription for pain meds. Dr. Kung helped me find ways to manage my headaches without the use of narcotics. He is current on all research, and I have been the beneficiary of recent research. I have been his patient for more than 10 years. My headaches went from 15 or more a month to fewer than 5. No more trips to the ER! He's

This is stone age neurology. I waited 3 months for this appointment because he is one of the few neurologists in the state who take Medicaid. Unfortunately, he is one of the few neurologists who does not consider migraines a source of pain. I showed up to his office crying from a migraine. I also showed up with my records from a D.C. area neurologist who used to treat me when I lived there. The records included scripts for painkillers we could not fill because Medicaid will only cover expen

I called to get an appt. and no live person and answered; I left a voice mail to please call me back. No call back for 5 hours. I called again, left a second message on voice mail to call me back; No call back. Next day I called again and left a third voice mail; no call back. I sent a fax asking to get call me back and no call back on Day 3 of all my contacts. This is a reputable medical doctor with the Stamford Health Medical Group? Really? Shameful in my opinion.
