Dr Chun is awesome. He listens to me without making me feel like I'm a criminal because I might need medication for my pain. I have had several epidural and fachette treatments on my back over the past 10 years i've been seeing him, and have had mostly good results. I would definitely recommend him if you are in chronic pain and can't find relief. He treats you with respect.
Worst Dr. Ever!! Not concerned with the health of his clients. Rude and unprofessional
in Port Charlotte, FL |
I've been a patient for about six years, he has given me injections for the RSD I ended up with after an almost fatal motorcycle accident. I trust him completely, and I'd not let another Doctor give me an injection in my spine. He's patient and friendly, and he's been good to me.

Have seen Dr. Chun for over 10 years and I am very happy with the results. Before his treatment I had to be hospitalized at least once a year and only twice in the last 12years. And the staff is great, including, but not the least, his assistant.
