dr. chung is thorough, knowledgable and has a great bedside manner. i had to wait more than an hour and that is unacceptable. i wish her assistant could have called me earlier in the day to say she was running late as i work at an hourly job and lost money because of the wait. i really liked dr. chung and she was apologetic. she needs an office manager or nurse practitioner to help out.

I had to wait 30 minutes to be seen but Dr. Chung had great bedside manner and was very informed. I look forward to establishing a rapport with her and continuing care at her office. Her secretary was very pleasant as well.

Dr. Chung has been my doctor for a few years now and I am always very pleased leaving her office, she listens to my concerns and responds appropriately without pushing any treatment options, the wait times fluctuate, sometimes being very long and sometimes very short. Despite wait times I will continue seeing her because she's a great physician.

Dr. Chung is the best doctor I've encountered in 17 years of living in NYC. She explained clearly, offered several options for testing, and followed up with my other doctors to make sure she had the right information. I highly recommend her.

It felt like she did more talking than listening. Unsure of how to feel about her and I can't tell if she is use to treating overall healthy patients who get sick with cold.

I love Dr. Chung. I think like any doctor in demand, it's natural that things might take longer than anticipated. I've seen Dr. Chung a handful of times and its no question that waiting time will have to be factored in. Any patient that thinks that their appointment is at 1:00pm and it will start right away or within the 10 minutes will then need to expect that in order to follow that window, they are most likely going to have a rushed consultation. But, even if my appointment started late, she doesn't rush to finish my check up. She is a great doctor. Dr. Chung is always looking out for her patients to ensure they understand what happened in their consultation. I really like going to see her and I trust her.

I was thoroughly expressed and grateful. She was not in a rushed and she allowed me time to talk about myself. She explained every step in laymen's term. I will recommend her to anyone that would listen and need an expert in her field.

This office is ridiculous. First, dr Chung makes a phone call to her receptionist in the middle of my consultation about another patient without excusing herself. Then dr Chung leaves me a message that sounds urgent and asks me to call back but when I do she never calls back. I called again and again. I made a follow up appointment on zocdoc and the office cancels my appointment without notifying me and when I called back they said because the doctor is over booked. So why did you even have it available on zocdoc, even if that's the case, calling me to inform me would have been nice. What kind of service is that. This is ridiculous!!!!! I would never recommend this office to anyone I know. Actually I urge everyone looking for a Pcp to stay away!!!! I have informed my insurance to change my Pcp to another doctor !!! Awful awful awful!!!!

My appointment time was changed without asking me on ZocDoc due to the doctor's schedule. I was only notified after the change. Once I was at the doctors office, I had to wait over an hour to see the doctor. I was told she was in a meeting. There were no other patients in the doctors office. She was not helpful and I left very unsatisfied. It was a waste of my time and money. Now I am looking for a new doctor.
