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.
