Everybody was great, especially Dr Hung.
Dr. Hung is awesome - although English may be her second language, she takes interruptions (questions, feedback) very professionally, making sure she provides a frame of reference or example to the extent that it is relevant to the patient. She is a great listener, and shows good empathy (but also path of action) to help you with your medical care.
When I was with the doctor, she made me feel like her only patient. I was not rushed or dismissed. The entire office was kind and helpful. Thank you!
I love Dr. Hung and I've recommended her to a bunch of my friends and our patients. She cares so much about her patients and I love how honest and open she is to her patients.
I really enjoyed meeting her and one of the best doctors I have seen in a long time.

I have already recommended Dr. Selena Hung to friends. She displayed terrific bed side manner, compassion, positive energy, and never made me feel rushed. She listened to concerns and showed real interest in understanding my genetic risk and family history. Even though we discussed emotional topics of genetics and family history, she never made me feel uncomfortable. I really appreciated her referrals to specialists and lab work requests. She was tremendously helpful and pleasant.

I love Dr. Hung ~ she is amazing. I feel confident that she has my best interest at heart and will provide me with the best care. She listened to my concerns and agreed. She immediately took charge and made changes to my care based on what we discussed. I will now have all of my care under the Stanford umbrella.
Dr Hung is the first doctor in many years that I can say I am totally confident having her as my doctor. I recommended her to my daughter and others. She is good listener and thorough in making sure all my concerns are addressed. She is very sharp, doesnt waste time. Very happy I have joined Stanford.
She blew me away with the depth of care I received. She set me up with three specialist referrals, two of which called me the next day to schedule and the third called me the day after, without me calling them first. Nothing like I've experienced before!

I had a most excellent experience with Dr Hung. she was amazing! I have a lot of health issues, and instead of being bothered by that or telling me to "pick one issue to discuss" as some providers do, she allowed me to bring up each and every concern. She knew straightaway which issues needed a specialist and sent referrals. I even got a phone call from one the clinics she referred me to so I could make an appt! I am so impressed.

I love my doctor. That's Chia-Yi (Selena) Hung, btw. Amusing note, my coworker made a slightly serious joke that I should just marry her after I raved about how efficient and personable she is. Why is everyone single shaming me? Anywho, we need more doctors like her. Keep up the good work?

I am a patient at another office and your office was covering in his absence. I was quite hesitant because I've had bad experiences with "covering" physicians in the past. What a wonderful surprise to meet Dr. Hung! She took the time to explain what I had, how we would treat it and made me feel cared about. If I ever consider leaving my current physician, she will be who I go to! Quite impress and considered it an amazing experience.
Dr. Hung is amazing. She listens to me. And understands my issues. Very personal and I like that, keep up the amazing work Dr. Hung.
Dr. Hung is the best!
I liked Dr. Hung, unfortunately I felt rushed. I was looking for a DO hoping to have a physician who was more natural/preventative minded. She didn't push a flu shot when I declined (good). I don't felt she addressed my specific concerns regarding nutrition for example. I was disappointed with the follow-up after my bloodwork. I told the dr. I've been a vegetarian for several years, but seems she didn't review my information. Her suggestion to borderline high cholesterol was to cut back on red meat, buttery, cheesy foods which is a pat, scripted response for high cholesterol & I already know that. I would have felt better getting information that might help me improve my health. Overall, I liked Dr. Hung, but because I don't feel I received help for my specific concerns I may try looking for a practitioner who can focus more on individuals & give better guidance for my health.
I want to keep her to myself so I won't be booking up her time with other patient recommendations. Is that selfish?
Dr. Hung is an extraordinary doctor, both as a clinical practitioner and as a person who connects with her patients. I feel fortunate to have found her as my primary care physician. She has discovered health issues that eluded other doctors and keeps on top of my ongoing concerns.
Very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable doctor.
Can't asked for a better care provider
Dr hung is very friendly, very caring, she always take the time to explain the treatment and its possible side effects, she is available very fast via email or phone when needed, I would strongly recommend her to anyone
Loved Dr. Hung. Had been wanting to switch from Samaritan Family Practice for a variety of reasons, and feel confident in switching to her.
Selena Hung is a great DO. she is very knowledgeable and caring as well as understanding. she provides me with medical information that I understand and if not she explains in a way that I do understand. I will keep coming back to her as my PCP
Dr. Hung is very thorough, empathetic, patient and compassionate!

Very pleased with the level of care.
good experience
Dr. Hung is the best doctor I have ever had. She's smart, sincere, thorough and seems to actually care.
Dr Hung is the best. so good I followed her from SJ medical clinic.
Doctor Hung is an excellent Physician.
To diagnose my issue, the doctor ordered many many tests and referrals. She didn't see the notes in my file about my pre-existing conditions until a follow-up visit. I was asked to get two MRIs, see a gyno, and a gastroenterologist among other things. It didn't seem like she was asking enough questions about my medical history or trying to evaluate me besides asking me to run around and take a lot of tests. After my first round of blood tests looked fine, I decided (on my own) to adjust my diet to exclude dairy and my stomach issues disappeared. Unfortunately this was after I had already gone for two MRIs that could have been avoided. I was glad I did not follow-up with all the other appointments.
Dr. Hung is one of the best Primary Care Physicians that I have had. She is excellent!
