I saw Dr Sung regarding a rash I previously went to urgent care for. Dr Sung listened to all of my concerns regarding the rash and helped me to come to the conclusion I should have an allergist take a look.

I still had questions regarding some medicine and potential treatment/referral doctors about my back situation after leaving the doctor's office. The answer I got regarding the medicine from doctor was that, "if it doesn't work well, come back see me."

all interactions with Dr. Sung have been thoughtful and caring. He as worked with me very caring and with professional integrity to continue my current battle with severe chronic back pain that eventually will require surgery. He continuously asks questions and researches any options available for possible alternatives to this major procedure.

I take medication and have for years for insomnia. Dr. Sung recently changed my regular medication to a new medication. The new medication did not work, and I advised the doctor right away. He suggested I increase the dose which also didn't work. I alerted the office that the medication did not work on Monday morning and no one responded. Tuesday I called again to say the medication was not helping me. I was then advised to bring in the medication that did not work to receive a new prescription from the doctor. I didn't keep the medicine that didn't work on hand, as I have small kids and don't keep unused medicine in our house. This was explained to the doctor's office and I was still refused the new script. I drove over to the office myself and the doctor wouldn't see me or give me the new script. This was an outrage. Had I been told to keep the unused medication on hand, I would have done so. I was accused of doing bad things with my medication because I see a pain management specialist, that I was referred to years ago, who gives me a controlled medication for pain. This has NOTHING to do with my insomnia! This was an unfair prejudiced event that I suffered through yesterday. I had to drive to a hospital's urgent care to get medication to sleep. I had already missed a day of work and the dr was aware of this. Listening to people and not assuming in this overly policied medication environment is appreciated! My family and I are strict on meds in our house because of our children, and because we've had medication stolen from our home before. To treat people like criminals is criminal in and of itself. Dr. Sung treats both my husband and myself. We are hard working people not trying to do anything but survive like everyone else! I hope this matter is addressed with Dr. Sung and whomever else thinks it's okay to punish patients for not complying with a request they knew nothing about beforehand. I am now looking for another primary I'm so disgusted with what happened.

Dr. Sung has been the best Primary Care Physician that I've had. He listens to what I have to say and answers each question honestly without being judgemental or insensitive like previous primary doctors that I've encountered. I've already recommended Dr. Sung to my family.

Dr. Sung always addresses all of my questions and provides referrals and other ways to tackle the medical issue to get it fixed. He's a great guy and I never feel ashamed of asking him with medical issues that I am experiencing.

all of my needs were addressed at my visit and my referral was put in immediately for an ophthalmologist, the office called me and I was seen the very next day to the referral Dr which was unexpected but I appreciated the immediate care I received. I will def see Dr Sung in the future. both my husband and I have started seeing him more often bc our Primary Care physician is usually booked up but we have had very positive experiences with Dr Sung and will continue to see him for our medical care.
