Patient Comments (57)
in Pueblo, CO |
Dr. Sung changed my life. I had reached a point of having difficulty walking due to the pain and weakness in my lower back and legs, with no relief from previous healthcare providers. On July 10, 2017 Dr. Sung performed L5-S1 fusion. The leg pain and weakness was immediately gone after the surgery, I was back to work in three weeks and at the end of August I am starting physical therapy. Dr. Sung is an excellent surgeon, and I highly recommend him to anyone in need of spine surgery! 10 stars!!!
Thank you very much for this kind review! We know living with that kind of pain is unbearable! We strive to provide the best care for our patients, and we are delighted we could do that for you. We thank you for the valuable feedback and we hope you'll see us again should the need arise!

He talks so my 81 year old father who is very bright (HAd NO IDEA What Dr SUNG WAS GOING To DO) I had to say wait a minute before he walked out on us.
We apologize for any negative experience you may have had. We would like to help resolve this, please call 719-622-4546. Thank you for your valuable feedback!

I had debilitating nerve pain for 7 months. Turns out there was a large disc herniation. Dr. Sung and his P.A were incredible. They are concise and solution oriented. After surgery, the leg pain was 60% better. Now 6 weeks after surgery, pain free!
Thank you for the kind review and words! Dr. Sung truly cares about his patients and strives to provide them with excellent care!
Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Sung was amazing. He walked me step by step through the process of my back surgery. He explained what to expect post surgery and was straight to the point. I have been a patient for over a year now and I couldn't feel any better.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Sung performed a L4-S1 spinal fusion on me. The results were excellent. He came highly recommended by other patients and medical professionals in our area.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Sorry to say that my decompressive laminectomy was a failure. I would NOT recommend Dr. Sung. About 2 1/2 years ago I began exploring my lower back options. I started getting pain and soreness in my back L3/ L4 & L4/L5 and radiating nerve pain in my legs. I was actively climbing mountains all over Colorado but after several MRIs, Dr. Sung said surgery was an option and the nerve pain in my feet will most likely be corrected. A year & 1/2 later I still have considerable nerve and back pain.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Sung is very thorough in all he does. Invites questions and explains each one in detail. Surgery went well. Office staff is efficient and very friendly and accommodating.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Sung fused C3 - T1. I waited till the surgery truly had to be done, which I recommend. Dr. Sung kept me informed from our first meeting though our final release back to work. He explained in detail ( which is what I wanted) what would be done and what the outcome would be. Everything went smoothly for me. I would recommend Dr. Sung at least for my procedure, cervical fusion. Thank you Dr. Sung!
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I just had major back surgery and my experience with Dr. Sung was Wonderful. He took a long time to analyze, consult with others and carefully plan what needed to be done to correct my collapsed lumbar spine. The outcome of what he did is tremendous relief to my pain and inability to function. I am very grateful for his wisdom and care for me. I have no complaints.
in Colorado |
I didnt like him at all. He treated me like equipment on an assembly line. Didnt spend much time discussing my health history and he was very cold and distant. Every appointment there was about a one hour wait after my appointment time. Within 5 minutes he was talking surgery and he suggested that was my best option (to get relief from pain); surgery did nothing. Going gluten free and reducing my inflammation finally gave me relief from my chronic pain.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
We have appreciated the way Dr Sung has openly and honestly explained the nature of my health condition, but hasn't aggressively pushed us toward surgery. He has explained the risks of not having surgery and has also explained what he believes surgery will accomplish and what it will not.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
My Experiences were amazing! I amen bent over andI am standing up straight, walking and back to work. Everyone was friendly and the care was great. Dawn Souza

in Colorado Springs, CO |
When I came to see Dr Sung, I was in constant pain and unable to walk more than a few yards at a time. Now (after spine surgery), I have a new lease on a happier life. I am without any significant pain and I am able to hike foe several miles without pain. I am also swimming and hope to begin playing golf in the near future. I am very fortunate and grateful that I found Dr Sung.

Dr Sung is excellent very caring and very good Dr, my surgery went ok, but his staff, his nurse and Dr assistant are horrible, very rude and show no sympathy or empathy to their patients.

in Colorado Springs, CO |
Answered all my questions.
in Pueblo, CO |
I am very pleased with everything about my experience. My surgery went flawless and had no issues post.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
The visit was very informative, he does take time with his patients, however....I never got my referral to a pain specialist (which was suggested vs. surgery) I waited over a week and called the office again to find out the status of my referral. It has now been another few weeks and my back has relapsed into a very painful situation. I tried to resolve this before the pain got out of control. Lack of follow up by this doctor has caused my low rating.
