Dr Chun made me wait for over an hour after i reached ahead of time for an appointment. The office staff at Summit Medical Group were very curt and took my copay of $45 as soon as i walked in. Then when the doctor finally came he was unprepared and didnt even have my notes from the previous visit from 2 months ago. He then said ill refer you to a pain management specialist since my pain was still present and that was it literally within 1 minute. No evaluation or examination. Stay away from them

Dr. Chun took his time, listened thoroughly & didn't make hasty decisions to operate until necessary. I had 2 prior low back surgeries & 1 perineal nerve decompression when I met Dr. Chun, so my case wasn't easy. I was in constant pain and desperat. After speaking with his nurse, she asked for my records, Mri's, etc and within days, called me back. Could you imagine....his office called ME back! Dr. Chun and his entire staff are courteous, caring, thoughtful, knowledgable, patient and kind.
