As a doctor, Dr.Fung is very knowledgeable,hands on,and provides safe treatments that work. The staff that represents him however is EXTREMELY rude,inconsiderate,inconsistent,unprofessional, and inpatient. Nor do they know how to control their temper. When I first considered switching rheumatologist because of the representing staff alone at Dr.Fung's office,the rheumatologist office in Killeen AND temple stated that most of the patients that have came from Dr.Fung's office has complained about

I have been seeing Dr Fung for 16 years for Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Sjogren's and Raynauds. He is very cautious prescribing drugs that affect my liver. He is receptive to my treatment of diagnostic ideas that I find and study on the internet. He is patient during office visits although he only sees me every 6 months. I don't know what I'll do when he no longer practices as Rheumatologists are very rare in this part of Texas. I am very satisfied and happy with him.

Dr. Fung is very knowledgeable and helped me with my chronic pain due to osteoarthritis, and degenerative disc disease. He no longer works with fibromyalgia but was still understanding and helpful for my chronic conditions.
Dr Fung does not address all Pt issues thoroughly. I have been advised/referred to seek care from another Rheumatologist by other health care professionals. The appointment times are poorly managed and then rushed through. Honestly I feel my time is/has been wasted. Labs are not being performed.

Have seen Dr Fung for year. He is a great doctor. Always ready to help with any problems or questions I have. He has a great staff at his office.

Dr Fung's nurse practitioner Pamela is very rude , she just didn't know why I was in so much pain . Maybe it's because my bone is deteriorating in my spine , with 8 bulging disc and several bone spurs , and significant narrowing . She doesn't know why I complain of so much pain in my knees ? Maybe it's because my knee X-ray said moderate cartilage thinning , soft tissue edema and lateral subluxation , spurring of the patella. None of my testing from 2 years ago is positive for arthritis !

Extremely impressed. On my first visit (a Friday afternoon) he checked me out and sent me for x-rays that afternoon. The Dr himself called me Monday morning to tell me that I needed to have a hip replacement A.S.A.P. I was very pleased that a Dr would do that in this day and age that he actually cared enough to contact me himself instead of letting another member of his staff call. I was also surprised at how fast he got back to me. The only problem I have is his accent is hard for me.
