Care Philosophy

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

Patient Comments (1)
Ephrata, PA |
My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and she was referred to see Dr. Chung from her physician for surgical intervention. From the first appointment with Dr. Chung, both she and my father were 100% comfortable and confident in the next steps that needed to occur. Dr. Chung, her staff and the staff at LVH Muhlenberg campus were excellent and her bilateral mastectomy and recovery went beautifully. Our family will be forever grateful to Dr. Chung for her genuine kindness and skill.
