About Dr. Chung

Philosophy of care

I will always greet the parents, but depending on the age of the child I usually start with the child and ask what's wrong. I always enjoy talking with the kids and besides the fact that you never know what they are going to say, I want the children to realize that the visit is about them and that they need to be involved with their health care from an early age. Of course, I always want to know mom and dad's version of the story and for them to fill in the details.

Why I entered medicine

When I was a child, whenever I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I had three options: a super model, the president of the United States or a pediatrician. Well, of the three, I think pediatrician is the most noteworthy. I have always wanted to be able to make an impact in the world, and as a pediatrician I believe that you have the ability to help do that one child at a time.

Personal interests

I enjoy many activities including exercising, scrapbooking, jewelry making and reading.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
