Dr. Chung has taken great care of my father. He is busy but when we are in a visiting with him, we have his undivided attention. I was his patient in the past and that is why I had my father's doctor referred my father to Dr. Chung. My father's previous infection control doctor seemed like he knew what he was doing but I never got a straight answer from him and I felt like we were always rushed. We do wait for Dr. Chung but I am happy to do so. Thank you Dr. Chung!

I honestly cannot believe some of the negative comments on here. I have been a patient of Dr. Heath Chung since December 2015. He and his staff members have gone above and beyond what is "required " of them. Being in healthcare myself, I understand that sometimes there is going to be a wait. Dr. Chung is a very caring and knowledgeable MD. He and his staff always make me feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend Dr. Chung to anyone that is in need of an ID doctor!

I saw Dr Chung for a leg infection, he prescribed my 2 abxs. I told him with my CVID I will get a nasty fungal infection. He said take vfend after the abxs are done and it will "cure" my fungle infect. I did, it hasn't. I have called and left 3 messages all week no call back, the fungle infection has spread. I have a weeken immune system that can not fight this, I warned you! And now I feel deserted! Thank God my immuno dr has stepped in and gave me a diff script. No follow thru dr Chung!

I would like to thank Dr. Chung for doing all he can to make my son Mike better. Since he has been diagnosed in Dec. He has been kind and gracious. Continue to treat all who enters your door. We are blessed to have you. Thank you Mike's Mom

Well-credentialed. Weak on follow-up and on accessibility. Very weak. Appears focused on volume of patient flow.

Wow. Just wow. (And no, thats not a compliment). Rude, 1 1/2 hour waiting, has no idea what he is talking about or does not really care about you.

Dr. Chung took excellent care of my father at Queen's ICU, very knowledgable, experienced, and compassionate. Spent time talking to my family and explaining treatment, diagnosis, prognosis and practices evidenced based care. Would highly recommend to anyone needing an ID doc.
