Dr. Hung was highly recommended to me by another doctor. The recommendation proved to be quite true. Very personable, a great listener and explains everything so you know exactly what to expect. His diagnosis was thorough and accurate and after years of sinus issues I finally have found relief.

I have seen Dr. Hung for over 2 years or since my relocation to Houston. I'd suffered from chronic sinus infections. He did my surgery. He is a very caring, considerate doctor. He WILL spend the necessary time to assuage any fears or concerns. I highly recommend him.

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.

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.

Dr. Hung says...

Dr. Richard Hung is very passionate about providing the absolute best ENT care in the city of Houston.  He cares deeply about each patient; making sure that everyone gets the personalized attention that is lacking in today's practice of medicine.

He is graduate of Baylor College of Medicine.  He received is Board Certification in 1993.  Being a native Houstonian, he moved back to Houston and joined the Center for ENT.  

His practice involves the entire scope of ENT, but has special skill and interests in office-based Sinuplasty.  He is able to treat patients with chronic sinusitis and nasal congestion here in the office without the risks associated with general anesthesia.  

He accepts new patients and would be honored to be your ENT doctor.
