I'm a fairly new patient with Dr. Gullung, whom I was referred to by my spinal surgeon. Having worked in the medical field over 25 years, upon meeting Dr. Gullung, I could tell he knew exactly what he was talking about. He performed a cervical fusion today and I could not be more pleased. I'm not even in any pain. Not only is a fabulous surgeon, he truly cares and is compassionate and not a pretentious bone in his body. Love him so much.

I waited 2 hours for my appt. I was in a lot of pain and could not sit or stand comfortably. When I asked the associate who had interviewed me if she knew how much longer it would be, she was rude and dismissive telling me he would see me when he was through. Dr Gulong had a film crew there and he likely was focused on this instead of his patient. When I finally got to see him he was pleasant and helpful, answered my questions and made recommendations. He seemed to be a good doctor.

OMG! This doctor is amazing! He performed surgery on my lumbar area 4/10/17 and I noticed the difference with 2 days. I had been having pain blocks several times a year for about 6 + years because I had been told that I wasn’t a surgery candidate. My niece had used Dr. Gullung so I decided to see him. I felt like I didn’t have anything to lose. He also has an amazing staff and Billy the Nurse Practitioner is the best also. Dr. Gullung I can never thank you enough! I would definitely recommend.

I saw dr. Gullung yesterday for upcoming spinal injections. He was, as always, charming and caring. He is without a doubt the best doctor I have ever been to. And Sheila, his schedule co-ordinator is just the best, always returns calls promptly. Just love him.
