in Walla Walla WA |
Dr Chung has been my Neurologist for 6 years. He has always treated me with respect and empathy. I have a great deal of trust in his knowledge and would recommend him to my family and friends.
Not only is Dr. Chung a neurologist, he is also a sleep specialist. He is very thorough and compassionate. He really cared about me as a person. He spent a lot of time with me, asking me questions so that he could really get to know me. He did not seem to be in a hurry to get me out the door so that he could run to the next patient. Thank you Dr. Chung for being such a great doctor.

I scheduled appts when the office opened and waited for over an hour many times. Very poor beside manner, almost never looked me in the eye, stared at a computer and typed while I talked. Worst of all, when my anti-seizure med prescription ran out and I was unable to schedule an appt, he would not refill the prescription over the phone (essentially threatening me to find another doctor or have a seizure). Options are limited in WW, but I would suggest literally any other doctor you can find.
