Dr. Chun had no interest in listening to me and dismissed the radiologist report in pretty rude terms. He didn’t check me or feel my area of pain. Self-centered and arrogant.

My experience with Dr. Chun was very professional. He listened attentively to my condition and explained what outcome I should expect. I went to therapy with no success as he predicted might be the outcome. I then decided to have surgery for severe spinal stenosis and felt relief soon after surgery. The pain in my leg was gone. I still have some discomfort which will subside with time and further therapy. Feeling much better and very glad I decided to do something about my lasting pain.

Dr Chun is the only neurosurgeon I would consider seeing for my neck complications. He performed emergency surgery on my daughter’s broken neck, due to a car accident, and she was so blessed that he was there that evening. He was kind, caring, knowledgeable, professional, but yet so personable, as well, we just knew we were so very lucky that he was the surgeon on call, on that dreadful evening. He was absolutely amazing, and she pulled through with flying colors, thanks to Dr. Chun. We will be forever grateful.

Waste of time and it didn’t have to be — should have told me to get a lumbar MRI prior to my appointment, as they had ALL of my reports and test results.

Dr Chun, Tara, all the nurses and receptionist s went out of their way to make me feel welcome. They cared for me with kind efficiency, always LISTENING to my explanations and then giving me their thoughts and evaluation. I left with hope ,confident in the treatment choices We made.
