Ratings for Dr. John S. Kung
I paid $7000 over the coverage of medicare for cataract surgery in order to have lasic done at the same time. Before the surgery I had perfect near vision. Now I have to wear glasses to read. Plus, I often see double. Sometimes I just cry about it, especially the double vision.
I explained my problem of skin above eyelid pressing down. My first appointment one of the staff performed a series of tests directly on my eyes. When I asked she stated we do not do that surgery. I told Dr. Kung and he said they do that surgery. I was given another appointment for the surgeon in his office to determine if I would be covered under my insurance(Medicare & GHI). I was given another series of tests and waited again approx. 1/2 hr. at which time in all probability one eye would be covered but given a 3rd appointment for Dr. Kung and again given another series of tests and again waited over 30mins., Dr. Kung said I am a candidate for glaucoma and wanted to do lasik surgery but that it was not a cure but prolong it. He referred me to Dr. Schiller for the surgery for the skin above eyelids and I said you told me you do that surgery which he denied and although insurance covered most I would never recommend Dr. Kung as I believe unnecessary tests and deceptive practices.
I just had cataract surgery with an upgraded lens several weeks ago. I do see much clearer and am grateful, though I was scared at first. I was referred to Dr. Kung by my doctor who told me he was also his patient. I am very satisfied with their services. Everyone is professional and they really do care about me.
My vision was getting worse. I was diagnosed with cataracts and glaucoma. Dr. Kung explained my eye condition to me and outlined different treatment plans. After getting cataract and glaucoma surgery, my vision has improved and my eye pressure is much improved. I am extremely impressed with his expertise. I've recommended him to my whole family.
