I've been in chronic pain for YEARS. I went to the ER one day when I thought I was literally going to die. There was a mass in my stomach that I could feel and was able to be seen in my CT scan. Dr Chung came in and told me what he believed it was, told me we were going to do surgery later that day. And today here I am to say he has changed my life, I feel like a new person. The pain is gone, I'm no longer suffering and it's all thanks to God placing Dr Chung in that hospital.
