I have nothing but good things to say about Dr.Chung and his practice. I was plagued with a kidney stone that 3 different ERs and one other urologist were unable to locate. Then I switched to Dr. Chung, and he not only "found" the stone, but also removed it via ureteroscopy. Moreover, pretty sure due to where the stone was "stuck", a stent didn't even have to be placed after the surgery. Dr. Chung was friendly yet professional. It was really easy to schedule appointments/surgery.

I had no issues with Dr. Chung. He was very professional, and very competent in his profession. He tends to lean a little more on the conservative side when giving advice and making a diagnosis, but I was satisfied welcomed it. I had a surgical procedure done with him and everything went perfectly. All aspects and procedures to correct my malady played out exactly as he described they would.

Got wrong diagnosis. Wasted time with 5 visits while in agonizing pain. He could not find the problem and suggested pain management. Went for 2nd opinion and found Interstitial Cystitis along with an extra small bladder. My opinion is Dr Chung is not good with older patients.

I have been a patient of Dr. Leo Chung's for over 10 years and think he is an excellent physician. He shows great compassion and there is no question he really cares about his patients' well being. His staff is fantastic! - Always courteous and helpful no matter how busy they are! There is hardly ever a wait in seeing him for a scheduled appointment. It is apparent his patients are valued. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
