Dr. Henry I. Kung's Ratings
I have seen Dr. Kung three times, for two sigmoidoscopy and a colonoscopy. Believe me, I didn't want to do these procedures, but my internist, when asked who was the best, to whom would you go to, Dr. Kung was recommended. He is thorough and knowledgeable and takes the time it needs to explain everything. I didn't feel rushed. He had firm opinions on medical options, but then, he is an expert. My colonoscopy went well...everyone was caring (lots of warm blankets, attentive, kind). Dr. Kung always calls to explain the results of the tests. And he has a great dry sense of humor. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Kung is a wonderful doctor. After my colonoscopy, he sat with me and explained my diagnosis (I have ulcerative colitis). He explained the available treatment options and walked me through the possible side effects to expect (both for the disease and the medications). He takes his time with each patient to make sure they understand their condition. If he's running late to your appointment, it's because he's being respectful of another patient's questions and concerns. He's extremely thorough which makes me feel confident that I'm in the right hands.
The woman that answered the phone was so rude to us when trying to schedule an initial appt that we requested the doctor call us and she informed us that the doctor wouldn't do it. Unprofessional and unacceptable behavior.
Dr. Kung was emphatic that I eat "3 big bowls of green leafy vegetables every day" for my constipation. I was incredulous. There's no way I could eat that much salad. But guess what? After resisting his advice for a year, I finally decided I had nothing to lose. And he was RIGHT. Eating a large amount (yes about 3 big bowls or a very large salad at BOTH lunch AND dinner)totally cured me. You have to give it a chance. Doing it only for a day or two won't cut it. You have to be consistent.
Pushed for surgery because of polyps that he said he could not remove he sent me to surgeon. I did not feel comfortable and got a second opinion and the polyps were removed with another colonoscopy which the Dr. said gave him no problem. I would recommend a second opinion and not with anyone that he would recommend better yet I would go to another Dr.
He is intelligent and thorough. He would always call me after each procedure to ask me about my status and would also tell me the results of the test. If I had a question he would always return my call. His accent sometimes make him hard to understand but he will repeat himself if you ask him to.
