Dr Sung is an excellent professional. He treated my mother and myself with great success from two different types of cancer. He is also an exceptional human being with impecable chairside manners and a down to earth attitude which I greatly appreciate. I always recommend him. I can never thank him enough for his outstanding care.

I cannot praise this doctor enough. Best doctor and human being I have met at Mount Sinai. Saved my mom's and my life. Eternally greatful for his thoughfulness, expertise and wonderful bedsidemanners.
in Bronx, NY |
I wouldn't trust him with my life. A family member did and we regret it now.He needs to learn how to listen to patients and their families about their symptoms. No follow up. I wish that I could give zero stars
in New York, NY |
I would not recommend Dr Sung, Get yourself a knowledgeable doctor . He never answers questions for follows up
in Brooklyn, NY |
I took my husband to Dr Sung because he was a specialist in a rare neoendocrine cancer that my husband had. My husband never missed an appointment in 6 years. Dr sung never followed up that my husband was losing a lot of weight and had severe pain. Even after my husbands lung collapsed Dr Sung said that nothing wrong just muscle strain.I took my husband to the ER where they did an MRI and found mass on lung He was kept for observation and Dr Sung was called and never showed. My husband died!
