Sobering but upfront and honest. He had to call me about the results from the bone marrow to see if I was a candidate. My wife and I didn’t think I was but we had to hear it from him. He tried to squeeze me in to his schedule twice but I was exhausted and called his office both times to tell them I couldn’t make it. He called me at my home at night and my wife listened as he explained the test results and was upfront and honest. Even over the phone I could tell he was very sincere and had incredible empathy. I thanked him for his honesty and his advice regarding end of life decisions I had to make to protect my wife and kids. Not great news but I appreciated it coming from someone who cares.

It was a very long consult, and for that I am very grateful. My wife were very, very nervous about the transplant process and we thought we had read enough about it, which in turn made us even more nervous. Dr. Chung took the time to explain everything to us and we felt much more at ease. I know that the transplant process is not going to be quick or easy, but Dr. Chung certainly made me feel much more at ease. And so does my wife.
