SHC Patient, Jul 2019

Again excellent is a better option -- Dr. Chung strongly urged me to go to Stanford Emergency Room -- and she was so right -- but I couldn't get there on my own and my spouse couldn't manage me since I was too weak to walk. They called an ambulance and that too was the right thing to do.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

Very thorough exam.

SHC Patient, May 2019

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Chung is great. Takes the time to listen and speaks to you like an intelligent adult. Great bedside manner.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Really great care. everyone considerate and helpful. Great culture.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Very understanding and taking time to listen to me. It was easy to follow the doctors advice. As non native speaker, the medical terms were of course hard to understand, but the doctor did not seem to mind if I stopped her when I did not follow her well.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. was very patient & had researched my case a little before seeing us. Very thorough & thoughtful. Nice lady too.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

I went in for burns. I was in a lot of pain and felt like the doctor did not show signs of empathy and was moving slowly when I asked if I could get something like ice for pain.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

I spend time with the doctor with great attention and details.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Dr. Chung is very patient with me explaining the concern I had. I like her.

a ver good place for serious illness

SHC Patient, May 2017

I scheduled an appointment with an ankle problem in mind. During the waiting period I developed a long-lasting cold (approximately 2 months) and a severe back pain (approximately 8 out of 10), which were not addressed.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

I felt like the doctor spent time with me and listened carefully. I came in with an injured toenail and I thought it would be examined. The doctor looked at it and maybe that's all she needed to do for her assessment. However, it did feel like maybe I didn't need to come in. I had scheduled the appointment at the request of the advice nurse and had felt that there would be a more thorough examination because of the urgency they expressed in me needing to come in.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

The doctor was very efficient with me. She gave me all her attention and more. I am very satisfied with her service...

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

my doctor was truly the best! I haven't met anyone like her at Stanford heathy care yet. she was very patient with me, very clear of the procedures and results, and kept her promises (gave me a call with blood work and it's results the day she said she would). I only wish I had this doctor as my personal doctor!

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr. Chung was great, but I felt a little like she wasn't confident in how to treat / advise me. I had to suggest an OTC medication instead of one she wanted to prescribe, and had to initiate a question about how it might interact with something I was already taking. My diagnosis wasn't quite clear to me but I did follow her advice and felt better after a few days.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr. Chung immediately sent me to the ER which was the best decision given the urgency of the situation. She was calm, patient, and effective as a care provider.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Good.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Chung is a great addition to the Ladera medical staff.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

I hate saying this, but I don't feel like I was heard. I asked about rotator cuff injury and it was as if she didn't hear me and did a cursory check and ordered an x-ray, which came back just fine. Printed out a handout on shoulder pain. Offer of muscle relaxer and sent me on my way. Reviewed her notes on MyHealth and had to correct them because she did not represent the issues accurately. She seemed off - like something had upset her prior to her coming in to talk with me.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

She was great! I felt so fortunate -

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Good experience -

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. is a wonderful lady who seems very competent, intelligent and caring. Yet my infection and pain was not attended to on day of visit. I was told shots would be fine. no illness, i was told. yet i have been very ill for 4 days after shots.
