Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Tun is a psychiatrist with a strong academic foundation and experience working with patients from many different socioeconomic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. Although raised in the US, Dr. Tun himself was born in Myanmar and spent significant time there, learning about his heritage, of the suffering of inequality and the peace in Buddhist thinking. He holds the view that mind, body, and spirit are one and that true recovery can only come from a unified integrative and holistic approach. He looks forward to working with each patient to develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to their unique history, beliefs, and body chemistry. Feeling better and finally finding peace is only half the battle, as we all struggle to stay the course and maintain our recovery over time. Dr. Tun continues to support patients after they respond to treatments, to ensure continued recovery so they can remain strong and continue to have a full and enriching life. Dr. Tun is particularly interested in the interface between psychology and neurology, and that is one of the connections that drew him to the potential uses of TMS. He is attracted to new and emerging technology and treatments for treating his patients.
Verified Patient Reviews
Very sympathetic doctor, helped to increase my understanding of psychiatry.
He's a very honest, intelligent & caring Clinician. This is the first time I've seen a psychiatrist in over 20 years and I look forward to seeing him again. I feel he is interested in helping chart a path to treating & managing the root causes of mental illness. He is conservative & honest in regards to medication which is respectable. Dr Tun is very easy to have a conversation with & asks lots of questions seeming very engaged with me as a patient.
Very professional and friendly. I got what I needed out of the visit and am looking forward to seeing him again.
I have had ADD since I was a kid and have taken Adderall on and off for a while now. I moved to San Francisco a few years ago and hadn't found a Psychiatrist. The office visit was great, Dr. Tun is a good listener and seemed like everything would be smooth sailing. However, when my prescription was sent to the pharmacy they told me that they needed a prior authorization (a simple insurance thing). When I called two days later they told me that they'd been calling Dr. Tun's office multiple times a day with no response. They tried fax and phone. After countless phone calls, 2 weeks later they finally got in touch with the Pharmacy and sent over the form. This was a little frustrating, however, I just saw Dr. Tun a second time and this time it has been a month and I have no medication. On top of all that, they call me constantly to try and get me to pay a fee from a scheduling mix up on their part; i guess they're too busy to provide medical care but not too busy to try and get paid.
