After years of practice in Manhattan Dr. Chung has come to the conclusion that there are a few healthcare styles that may keep you healthy or make your life easier. Routine - Although screening cannot prevent all diseases, regular visits with a doctor you know and who knows you, is the best way to prevent diseases caused by lifestyle. Smoking, weight, lack of exercise, and lipids are basic issues addressed regularly at a Family Doctor’s office. Practice notice for New Patients: 1.

Patient reviews for Dr. Bruce Chung
Wonderful visit in a new clean and bright space. You can tell the whole team is very professional and courteous!
Very smart and easy to talk with. I’m very happy I found him
They treat you like cattle
Dr. Chung was affable, knowledgeable, clear in his explanations and competent in executing the examination.
Kind. Straightforward. Very professional and genuinely wants to help.
Dr. Chung is a great physician!
All my visits have been very pleasant. There's almost no wait time, and Dr. Chung is super nice.
I don’t appreciate being offered homeopathic “solutions” from a medical professional. I was given a list of homeopathic remedies that I could pick up from Whole Foods. If I believed in and wanted to be treated homeopathically, I would not have sought out Dr. Chung’s clinic.
Dr. Chung fit me in for my annual physical on Christmas Eve when I booked then night before through Zocdoc. So props to Zocdoc for speedy contact and confirmation. Staff were courteous and efficient and Dr. Chung himself is relatable and down-to-earth right off the bat. I never felt rushed or pressured to get unnecessary prescriptions or tests done. The personal touch, ease and convenience of this practice really shines through and I would recommend Dr. Chung to anyone!
I arrived at 3:40, 10 minutes late for my appointment. The receptionist had me fill forms and after 50’ minutes of waiting, informed me that the doctor was seeing another patient before me because I had arrived at 3:55. So they lied about my arrival time and they had me spend 50 minutes in a filthy office for no reason. Completely unprofessional
Very professional, funny and friendly! Would recommend in a heartbeat.
The reception sent to a wrong address to do my blood test! My knee was very hurt that day.
Dr Bruce was superb, he explained things in detail and answered all my questions. He made me feel like he actually cared about my well being and had a very calm aura to him. He’s very knowledgeable and was attentive. He is now my primary care doctor and i recommend him to all my friends and family.
Quick and knowledgeable.
Its a great place, very well manner and informative to my needs.
Definitely professional and gets things done quickly
Dr. Laderman was so kind and patient with me. She didn’t rush me out of the room and took her time to explain to me what the issue was. That seems to be the trend at this office!
This was my first time meeting Dr. Chung and my first time not seeing a pediatrician. He was super friendly and a pleasure to talk to!
Great doctor, he was easy to talk to and explained everything he was doing. Makes you feel comfortable and in good hands. He was very honest and real about any question I had. I feel like I finally found a doctor that is not there to rush you out. He actually wants to help you in every way possible. I recommend this doctor!
Great Doc! Addressed all concerns, patient and not rushed. Med assistant thorough. Front desk friendly.
Always a pleasure.
I have been visiting Dr. Chung for many years. He is the best, friendliest and most communicative doctor I have ever had. I could not recommend him more highly!
There was a huge dead roach under one of the seats in the waiting room but besides that my appointment was fine.
Dr. Chung has been my primary care provider for about 15 years. I travel all the way from Brooklyn to see him. I’m a physician myself and can easily find a good primary care provider near my home or office, but I really value my relationship with Dr. Chung and am happy to travel out of my to see him.
Unprofessional office...will be looking for a new primary doctor
I've never connected with another doctor like Dr. Bruce.
De. Bruce Chung didn’t see me today, but. Practicing Nurse did and she was awesome. Made me feel very comfortable and K was able to talk openly about my concerns and she gave incredible advice
It is good atmosphere to attend the patients. Like it.
Very nice and staff were helpful and patient.
It was very good. The staff were courteous and helpful.
Saw Nurse Practitioner Neva Solomon. Neva was friendly, engaging and very knowledgable. Highly recommend her.
Pleasant and thorough physical. Clean office & the wait was less than 20 min. Highly recommend this office
Professional and caring.
Second time I've seen Dr. Chung. He is professional, practical and thorough. His methods are scientific and empirical. His bedside manner is calm and thoughtful.
Dr. Chung was extremely patient and helpful. He actually listened to me and seemed to take the symptoms the I was describing seriously. It's great to see a doctor who doesn't just drop by for 2 minutes.
The MD was great. He should rethink the way in which they have their schedules booked so tightly. I was 10 minutes late and had to wait nearly 2 hours to be seen (essentially for him to sign a form). The receptionist would not help until I literally walked out of the patient room and told her I was leaving.
Dr. Chung has been my primary doc for the past decade now, and he's great with patients and very knowledgeable. His office is always polite and they have a policy about scheduling appointments only a few days out. So, you don't have to wait weeks to get in. His office is clean and modern and comfortable. Everything is electronic too.
I love Dr. Chung. It's hard to find a doctor that I like in the city as I come from a small suburb in Texas. Dr. Chung makes me feel at home and cared for. I'm so happy that he's so close to my apartment and he's an amazing doctor!
He's the best. I almost don't want to share. ;-)
Good doctor, but remember, City Care Family Practice is first and foremost a business. You must pay your copay before seeing the doctor, you must give them your credit card information so they can bill you first if the insurance company has an issue, and there is a hefty cancellation fee. So if you really need to cancel your appointment, do so before 24 hours prior to your appointment so you don't get fined. They have your card info, they will do it. On the pro side, Dr. Bruce Chung was conscientious and understanding. If he takes that much dedicated time with a patient then yes, there will be a wait. Luckily, not a 2 hour wait, but I did get a few winks waiting for him. He always has his laptop to check on information and he tackles all your issues and questions one by one. On the downside, I will be continuing my search for a regular primary care physician because of Enzo clinical labs. Blood and other tests are not done by the doctor's office. Instead, you'll be routed to go to one of Enzo lab's walk-in facilities. So that's more wait time and another place just to get your tests done. On top of that, I went to Enzo's East 33rd street location which was only manned by one person who was sick, in a sour mood, and was not very courteous to the customers. I left because I didn't want to get stabbed with a needle by a bad tempered person. The whole doctor's visit, including the wait time at Enzo's would have taken over 2 hours. Inconvenient and time consuming.
Dr. Chung was awesome! Very friendly, personal and funny. Great doctor.
I went in for a physical exam ahead of starting business school in a few weeks. Having been in Manhattan three years, this is quite honestly the BEST doctor/patient experience I've had in Manhattan. Dr. Chung and his medical assistant were thorough, helpful and friendly. Not very easy to find at other doctor's offices in the city. Dr. Chung answered all of my questions and made excellent recommendations on maintaining optimal health. I was searching for a doctor who accepted my new insurance and I am glad I discovered him, I will definitely be going back and highly recommend.
Quick and painless as always
Great office, staff, and doctor. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a primary care doctor.
The office is always very efficient and friendly, and the doctor takes time to listen to you and get to know you. He always remembers me when I come in.
He was so bad I moved out of state.
He was great, no complaints. A long wait, that was the only down side. I will continue to go back to him
Dr. Chung was very personable and nice. I had a physical and he seemed to tick all the boxes properly. Can't really speak to how he would treat symptoms/problems.
Excellent, attentive staff. Dr. Chung was very friendly and answered all my questions.
