I can’t say enough about Dr Hung. He is outstanding and I would highly recommend him. He has a very nice way about him in the office explaining medical options and during the procedure as he clearly explained all the steps. Bernadette, his assistant, adds to the top notch team. Very responsive and always a pleasure to deal with. Thank you!

Dr. Hung inspires confidence by listening carefully, a warn and friendly persona, and then communicating very clearly the process he will be following to treat the condition. During the procedure he communicates progress in clear and reassuring terms -- quite distinctively. Most importantly, the positive results achieved treating my difficult condition were exceptional. I recommend him highly and without reservation.

Dr. Joseph Hung is kind, compassionate and thorough. After months of mis-diagnosed lower chronic back pain, I was referred to Dr. Hung. He dx inflammation in the SI Joint and after two steroid injections and PT I am now pain free.
