Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

Dr Gary Chung blessed me with the wonderful gift of perfect vision.He did cataract lens replacement surgery but not because of cataracts but because of extremely poor vision.Implanting the Symfony IOL multifocal lens he was also able to correct my astigmatism.With his profound skill and uncompromising perfection I can clearly see and identify a bird in the neighbors tree or read the fine print under the icons on my phone.All colors are bright and I have true and dependable depth perception

Dr. Chung has done cornel transplant surgery on both of my eyes. This is not an easy surgery for the doctor or the patient, so having all the information about procedure and having confidence in the doctor is very important. My condition was very serious, and if the sugary was not successful I was facing very poor vision for the rest of my life, and possibly not being to drive. Bothe surgeries went extremely well. I believe my success is directly due Dr. Chung and his great skills, THANKS!!

He was fantastic. Saved my mom's vision when other docs said it couldn't be. Highly recommended.

Dr. Chung is extremely competent, capable and sympathetic. He did bladeless cataract surgery and the results were great. If I needed serious eye surgery, he would be on my short list!
