The epitome of competent and compassionate care!
Dr. Chug is thorough, knowledgeable, attentive, patient and a great communicator. He and everyone in his office provide compassionate care. His staff/team are number one, in my book. When I first saw Dr. Chug, I was recovering from COVID when I went into respiratory failure. He listened to me, helped me understand everything I needed to and told me right away what was wrong with me. He explained that I had long COVID and diagnosed a rare condition that I had and began treatment immediately. F/U testing proved him to be correct. I really believe the care Dr. Chug gave me may have saved my life or at least lengthened it. I can never thank him enough. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a pulmonologist aimed and lengthening and improving their patient's quality of life.

I wouldn’t even give him a star if I could. He’s a Dr. who lacks bedside manners. He’s rude. He hung up on me when I asked for an update about a family member’s condition.

Over the past 3 years I have been through the ringer trying to figure out what was causing my excessive daytime sleepiness and sleep attacks, from psychologists who told me I was depressed to people telling me I was just lazy, I finally ended up in the care of Dr. Chug. Under his care I was finally diagnosed narcolepsy, and I cannot say enough great things about him. He listens, and he cares - and he is willing to go above and beyond to ensure the best level of care. I would HIGHLY recommend him to all.

Dr. Chug has been my doctor for the past two years and I couldn’t find a better and friendly doctor in Houston. His thoroughly examination led to my diagnosis. Despite I didn’t want to receive treatment, he took the time to explain me all the benefits of the treatment to me and also he draw in a didactic way my problem so I can understand it, after treatment my life changed completely and I feel wonderful. Dr. Chug cares for you and your quality of life, he’s a brilliant Doctor.

I had an appointment today with Dr. Chug. I received an email and text yesterday confirming my appointment today. When I arrived at the office, I did not have an appointment. I scheduled the appointment online and according to the office staff the online appointment and office do not communicate. There should be a disclaimer online to advise prospective patients. I had to make arrangements to get there and pay for parking FOR NOTHING!

Dr Chug is so friendly. Very refreshing to have a knowledgeable doctor explain things without being short or dismissive. He really listens, and tries to understand your concerns not only give any answer, do not be fooled by his candid personality he knows his stuff! He saved me from bouncing around again back and forth with the ENT.
