I like Dr T. Chung. He took the time during initial consult to hear my answers to his questions. He has a friendly, warm 'bedside' manner. His decisions about how to treat my pain were thoughtful and considered.

Nicest and best doctor I meet. I had back pain for two years, and yesterday I got my lumbar epidural steroid injection. My back is already better. The injection was not painful at all. I recommend Dr. Chong. He has the latest equipments to give the injection correctly.
