  • Dr.chung is as an amzing provider,very polite, caring professional.she brings peace to my heart.the best doctor ever very nice,outstanding service every time I see her,love this doctor,always with a pleasant attitude

  • There should be someone at the front desk at all times i stood there for 14min before someone came out, also did not appreciate the whole waiting room knowing my information the women at the front desk said it all out loud the only thing the waiting room didn't know was my social number. Not impressed

  • Dr Chung is wonderful. She is thorough very informative. She has a very pleasant demeanour and I would recommend anyone with a breast issue to her.

  • If a person has to go through hearing about cancer this place is fantastic and everyone I dealt with. I can't say enough about Dr. Chung

  • Timely procedure. Helpful and courteous staff.

  • Your facility, staff and providers are outstanding. What a beautiful suite, kind, caring and compassionate staff.

  • Everyone especially the 2 women who stayed with me through my biopsy were extremely friendly, courteous and put me at ease.

  • Everyone from the moment you walk in until the second you leave is unbelievably wonderful. When I was told the radiologist wanted to speak to me when I went for a redo on my mammo I was a bit nervous. The two techs (I wish I remembered their names because they were so good to me) who did the redo were in the room with me the whole time [Name]was explaining my situation to me. I was then taken to see [Name] (who by the way is beyond super) for scheduling. She got me a quick appointment date and actually wanted me in sooner but I had a previous appointment for that day. Not only did she explain everything in detail as to what to expect but she made me feel less nervous about all the news I had just received. On the day of the biopsy my husband and I were blown away by Dr.Chung. She is so down to earth, informative and funny. At a time like this that's absolutely what we needed! Then from the second [Name] called my name to prep for the biopsy until the very moment she brought back to the waiting area to leave, she and [Name] were totally amazing! They were sweet, caring, listened to all of my "nervous talking" and explained everything that was going to happen before, during and after the biopsy. They were also great with small talk which helped calm my nerves! He was very nice and very professional. The next morning, not even 24 hours after leaving I received a call asking how I was doing (again by a very nice woman who sorry I forget her name too). I thought that was so nice. It made me feel like I was cared about and not just another name or number. From my very first mammogram there a few weeks ago I was already telling everyone I know about the breast center. Not only are all the people who work there great but the center itself is beautiful. Since then I have one niece who is now a patient and another niece who is hoping to be able to leave where she is going now to become one. Thank you all so very much for all that you do!

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Helpfulness of Clerks & Receptionists, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
