Changed my life!!!
I am so grateful to have contacted Dr Chun about the symptoms of my chronic back pain. His confident and straightforward explanation of my treatment options helped me make the decision to undergo a surgery that changed my life. The pre op / surgery appointment scheduling process was straightforward and the care I received was customized to my needs. Recovery time was minimal, the incision healed perfectly. It’s so small I don’t even notice it. I was able to walk around and be mobile within weeks with virtually no lingering pain. I’m glad I had the procedure and didn’t wait any longer. I would recommend him 100 times over. Thank you for restoring my livelihood, Dr Chun, Im so grateful.

Not truthful at all how post surgery would be. I was told first two weeks after surgery would be "normal daily routine", anything but, many restrictions. Also told I would start physical therapy after two weeks. All nurse could say I saw for two week post op (no doctor) was, "I don't know why he told you that" Definitely felt like a number, not a person. I pray Dr Chun is a better surgeon than he is being up front with his patients

Dr. Chun lacks as a compassionate healer. I believe you can find an excellent surgeon who is also a caring practitioner. I don't believe you'll find that in Dr. Chun.

Surgery is not the 1st option
I loved that he said if I could prevent surgery, I will. I've had enough surgery on my life. He wants to take his time to see what works for me and endure that I'm happy as well. Excellent! Thank you for your time.

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.
