What People Say About Dr. William Tung, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Only one thing I’m unsettled about. After surgery I went into affib, I was not told anything about affib or the possibility of going into affib. I think the patient should be told that it’s a possibility of going into affib befor they are taken to surgery. I was released the day after surgery on a Saturday. By 4am Monday morning I was having chest pain. My daughter took me to the ER and that’s when I was told I had went into affib, and it was probably brought on by the surgery. I was in ICU for six days, to be sent home with several bottles of medication., and was told to see a heart doctor.

I was very impressed with Dr. Tung. He asked a lot of questions so he could determine what was wrong with me. He also ordered another test to see how my arteries are doing. I feel he is an excellent doctor with a great deal of knowledge. A very professional attitude and explained things so you could understand.

My dad had a stroke and his neurologist recommended him to Dr Tung for surgery. Dr Tung wanted approval from his cardiologist before he would schedule surgery. We obtained this approval two weeks ago. I have called three times and left messages for Dr Tung for over a week and no one will call us back. We have no option but to go go Carilion now and get this surgery my dad needs. Please do not go to this doctor.

I've been a patient of Dr. Tung for over a year. I feel comfortable discussing my issues with him. He always takes time to explain things to me. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a vascular surgeon. I am sure you will be pleased not only with his knowledge but also his professionalism and what is commonly referred to as his bedside manner.
