I was calling to book an appointment with Dr. Kung and the lady who picked up the phone was very rude she didn't even let me finish my sentence and hang up the phone. this is not way how you supposed to talk with a new client. Dr. Kung was recommended to me but I think I will choose different doctor to avoid situation like this on front desk.

Having procedures twice in the past 5 years, I can say, as a health professional myself, Dr. Kung proved to be worth every bit of my confidence. Even post ops were perfect IMHO. I can't even imagine a complaint

HORRIBLE!!!!! Spoke to the admin and she simply stated that Dr Kung would not see a patient that had seen another GI doctor. She would not reason and was quite rude. We won't give a second opinion. I explained I was not looking for a second opinion simply a doctor that would take my insurance. She Kept repeating Dr Kung will not see a patient that has been seen by another doctor. Where does that leave me- because my old doctor does not take my insurance.

Dr. Kung is very knowledgeable and really knows how to make a patient feel like they are in good hands. He carefully explains things in easy to understand language and takes the time necessary... I have never felt rushed.
