Patient Comments (3)
in Township of Washington |
Very attentive and concerned about his patients.
in Clifton, NJ |
This office ignores their patients. If you call about a problem they do not call you back.There is no sense of urgency in this practice. When you call a doctor first thing in the morning with a real problem with the drugs they put you on and here it is 3 days later and many calls to the office later and they still haven't called you back to speak to you...THAT IS A RED FLAG!!! Stay away.
Dr. Chung is the best doctor I've ever had. He's kind, patient, thorough and genuinely cares for his patients. He'll take the time to answer your questions in detail and also asks a lot of questions to make sure you're taking good care of yourself. I've been seeing him for about two years and have never once felt rushed. I know I'm in good hands and will continue to see Dr. Chung for as long as I can.
