Patient Comments (3)

Dr Chun evaluated my right elbow and helped a great deal with an injection. He also evaluated my right bicep tendon and said surgery is always an option, but suggested we wait until it became a bigger issue. I would highly recommend him.

Had Carpal Tunnel Release surgery performed by Dr. Chun approx. 5 years ago and am still amazed by my results, my recovery and almost no visible scar whatsoever.
