Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chung "The healing process requires trust, knowledge and hope. I try to create a feeling of trust, give patients the knowledge they need to understand their own condition, and of course, develop a plan that gives them hope. I treat my patients as if they are a member of my family or a close friend. I committed myself to that when I first thought of becoming a doctor. I know what it means. My dear aunt and grandmother both had breast cancer. I know how it affected my own family. Treating a patient like a member of the family means empowering my patients with understandable information and formulating a treatment plan that makes sense to them. I share my perspective with my patients, try to eliminate the unknown and help them to see the light after passing through darkness"
