I was so grateful I came to her for a second opinion. My first pediatrician kept telling me it was normal that my baby was vomiting every feeding a couple of times and to hold off on doing anything till shewas 2 months. But Dr. Nam Young Chung saw us and gave us a few opinion on what we could do and even told us to try a different milk which actually stopped her vomiting with in the hour of giving it to her. I felt like she was listening to our concern instead of just ignoring us cause were first time parents. I’m definitely switching her over to this peds!

won't trust zocdoc reviews any longer... this was our first visit with newborn 1. we were not placed in separate room and waited with other kids, one had rash! 2. my appt last 4 mins! literaly, all doctor did measured weightand height, i had lots of questions as this is my first child and first visit but doctor said she has lots of patients and this is not a hospital to provide all info and gave me website! so pretty much google answers...nice, right? do your check up online 3. when i stated that i do need answers and this was my appt time she offered us to wait while she will be with other patients, i agreed, but after 15 mins baby started to cry and i thought it was not a good practice, we decided to leave..doctor said oh its ok for baby to cry! so she didnt even admit that overbooking situation applies to her 4. she has appt scheduled every 15-half hour... 5. didnt even tell us regarding follow up visits and when reception wanted to book us again we just left feels like scam!

Dr. Chung is a very nice and very good doctor and her office is sparkling clean but unfortunately she was not able to give my 1 year old the vaccines she needed because of my insurance coverage. Also the blood workis done at another lab so it was for me personally not a very convenient and efficient experience. I had to change to another Dr.’s office that would treat my daughter including with blood work and vaccines at the same place.

I always appreciate Dr. Chung's thorough check up. As a first time parent, I have numerous questions, and she answers every single one of them. My son is 3 months old and he had a cold. She gave me a verydetailed explanation of his diagnosis, which was simple to understand. She fully prepared me with the steps to care for him and I was comfortable leaving the office, knowing what will happen and how to help him. She's wonderful!!
