I had the balloon sinuplasty procedure with Dr. Hung. It was a bit scary but Dr. Hung is very calming and reassuring. He made the whole experience painless. After having chronic sinus infections, my sinuses are much more open and I can breathe much better. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hung to anyone needing treatment.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Hung is a personable professional that makes one at ease during some necessarily evasive procedures. He makes every effort to inform his patients of what exactly is your condition and his plan to improve it. My wife and I had the same procedure done and our experiences were consistent on how how we were treated. Wait times can vary on getting in, but are consistent with people that are in high demand. Front office is very efficient and friendly.
in Cypress, TX |
Dr. Hung listens to your issues and recommends solutions. Follow-up post nasal balloon dilation was diligent and professional.
in Houston, TX |
Dr Hung injected my ear with a solution which he said was a steroid. It caused immediate extreme reaction. He claimed not to know what caused the pain. I was unable to drive myself home. He gave me a prescription for pain...the office never called to follow up . Shockingly poor.i informed my doctor who had referred me, and he also was extremely puzzled by the use of a steroid injection in the ear.
