Dr. Susie Chung was by far one of the most attentive doctors I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. She was thorough with her time and I never felt like she was rushing me out the door or checking infor 5 minutes (as sometimes is the case with other offices). She was so friendly and gave me tons of information! Would highly recommend her to anyone.

She was amazing. A co-worker recommended her and I cannot believe how wonderful she was. She took her time to explain everything and created a patient profile. She was very through and provided me with the answers I requested. I hopeI never have to go back but I'm glad if I do, I have a Nephrologist I can rely on.

Dr. Chung is a caring, smart, wonderful doctor who takes time to listen and thoroughly understand your symptoms and to explain explain everything she is considering regarding your care and treatment. Because of this, there may be a wait to seeher. I knew this when I made my appointment based on the other reviews, so I was prepared to wait, and I am glad I waited. Her office was not crowded, but she gives each patient her full attention and does not rush in any way. I definitely recommend her. Worth the wait time.

I arrived about 12 minutes early and submitted my new patient form. Secretary was nice. There were no other patients in the waiting room, but I waited 30 minutes until the doctor arrived at the office. I understand she might havehad subway issues, but I wish I was informed of this on arrival so I could make necessary arrangements with work. Otherwise, she was very informative, expressed genuine interest in my medical background, and a pleasure to speak with. She does an excellent job explaining medical complications that can arise out of neglecting regular tests and is conscious of insurance concerns patients may have.

Dr. Chung is very thorough in explaining all areas that concern your personal health issues, but she is not good at following up with test results. I went there twice, both to get blood tests done and both times I hadto call and leave multiple voicemails and didn't get a call back until WEEKS later. She's either very unorganized (which from the looks of her office might be true) or understaffed. Either way, I'm not going back again.

Don't even bother! First of all, I had to wait an HOUR to be seen. She was with another patient in which I can tell you all about his medical history because she didn't close the door and spoke so loud.When it was FINALLY my time to be seen we went into her office to talk. Her secretary kept interrupting our conversation by calling to ask how to spell a name of medication she had to call In for the patient before me. Dr. Chung actually stopped our conversation to look up how to spell the name of the medication as well. She talked in circles about all these tests she wanted me to have but first she needed to check urine. We go into the exam room and she stops her routine to respond to a text. She tells me I need to have my urine tested after 20 minutes of looking for the urine cup, she tells me I have to go downstairs to the lab and ask for the urine cup myself. I had to call her 15 times to find the results of my urine test which took three whole weeks, in which she herself never told me, I got the "everything is fine" from her receptionist. Dr. Chung is very unprofessional and clearly does not care about her patients. DONT BOTHER BOOKING HER!

The receptionist lied to me regarding my life sustaining diabetic supply prescriptions two times. The office never contacted me to say that they had not authorized my auto-refill of insulin...so as I was running out, I contacted my online pharmacyto see what the issue was..and they explained that Dr Chung had not not allowed the prescription to renew - which would make some sense if I hadn't seen her in years, but I saw her 10months ago and had an appt to see her before a year had passed. So, now I am dangerously low on supplies and I call Dr Chung's office and the receptionist tells me that Dr Chung will call the prescription in to the online pharmacy. Great, because I only have a few days left of WHAT KEEPS ME ALIVE. I call the pharmacy the next day to see when it can ship and if I can pay more to expedite the shipment because I have about one day's worth left...Dr Chung has not called. I call the office. The receptionist LIES TO ME AGAIN and says the prescription was called in. I explain that it has not, and could she please send it today, for I risk serious complications if it is not. Again, Dr Chung did not call it in - and when I call the office to explain that, I am told that my insurance won't cover it...???!!? What does that have to do with this? And, yes my insurance does cover it - how would the receptionist know what my prescription plan is? And at this point who cares about coverage - I have enough insulin for one day, maybe! I tell her that my insurance does cover it - and then she changes her story and says Dr Chung needs you to come in for an appt before she allows the prescription to be filled for she feels your diabetic status may have changed. Insane. THIS OFFICE HAS NOW PUT ME IN HARMS WAY BY DECEIVING ME ABOUT MY PRESCRIPTIONS AND LYING TO ME ABOUT THE STATUS OF MY INSULIN AND SUPPLIES. I HAVE BEEN FORCED TO PURCHASE A DIFFERENT TYPE OF INSULIN AND SYRINGES FROM A WALGREENS AS AN EMERGENCY SUPPLY AND MY CONTROL HAS SUFFERED AS A RESULT OF DR CHUNG'S NEGLIGENCE AND DECIET. NEVER GO TO THIS OFFICE.
