Ratings for Dr. Walter I. Choung
I went to visit Dr. Chong's Office Dec. 5th 2012. The staff were very discourteous, unhelpful, rude,cold,impatient, uncaring and unprofessional. To me all they cared about is money, not injuried patients. Dr. Chong dealt with me brief and swiftly. He didn't answer a few of my questions about my knee in any detail. I felt they were dealing with me more, like a thing, than an actual person. I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody.
Had knee surgery for ACL replacement. They have you come back constantly to just "look" and nothing gained by appt just more money. When I did finally have surgery, replaced ACL failed within 6 months. Will not be continuing with his services. Its annoying to be seen by him then his assistant each visit as you have to rehash your last appt each time. Reception is far from even OK. Rude, slow and unhelpful.
Through 4 surgeries he has been wonderful and I'll be having a 5th one in a couple of weeks. He was highly recommended when I first went to him and I would recommend him just as highly to anyone who asks me. His physicians assistant and the rest of his staff have also been really kind, wonderful and professional. I'm probably one of the most impatient people you could ever imagine but I can honestly say I have never had to wait more than a few minutes. I have also had really good recovery times, and minimal discomfort.
Dr. Choung was very professional and courteous. He did a total left knee replacement in 1999 and another right knee replacement in 2005. Both operations were successful and restored me to all normal life functions and activity, with no pain after rehab.
Dr. Choung has always been attentive to my problems and quick to try to alleviate pain. He is also very kind yet businesslike. I had knee replacement surgery performed by Dr. Choung, no major problems, and the scar has healed very well, honestly one of the prettiest knee replacement scars I've seen!
