All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

He is an excellent doctor. He answered so many questions I had for my daughter who has seizure disorder. My daughter saw several other neurologist and even one epilepsy specialist at Barrow, he is the one who really answered and cares for my daughter. I wish I found him early. We were referred to him by another epilepsy specialist who said, I cannot help her any more. Go see Dr. Chung. I was initially surprised by the statement but I understood why he recommended Dr. Chung once we saw him.
