  • Dr. Chung is caring, professional, takes the time to listen to your concerns. Always professional in the past 5yrs I've been a patient. Although, at my last appointment I've been released from her care, she made sure to tell me should I have any concerns going forward do not hesitate to contact her office. Thank you again Dr. Chung!!

  • Everything was really good

  • Everything was excellent. Was able to get a mammo and ultrasound on same day as appointment. Very convenient. Providers demonstrated genuine care and concern.

  • Dr. Chung was excellent. She explained everything very well was very caring and thorough. I would give her a 10 for sure as a doctor. The team who did my biopsy including the radiologist and all the technicians who were in the room while I had my biopsy were absolutely excellent also very caring thoughtful gentle and thorough also. Again I would give them all a 10. Great service. Perfectu00A0

  • Receptionist & mammogram technician were excellent...however, Dr Chung was very abrupt & impersonal! The breast exam was very thorough as I would have expected...maybe she was having a difficult day. I know she is very knowledgeable. She is difficult to understand. I get the masks, but she speaks too quickly & with little patience when asked to repeat. Rapport between doctor & patient can go a long way.I found that missing with this appointment. Again, receptions & mammogram technician wereexcellent...thank you for allowing me to express my concerns.

  • Felt very comfortable. Great staff and Drs.

  • Well, I stayed in the office for awful long time and you know to be seen by the doctor, but otherwise, she's very good and very helpful, but it was like 30 minutes was sitting there in the waiting for the doctor to come in. So that's only thing that I have bad about it.

  • Although there was some confusion about what was being done today once clarified everything went very well. Staff kind and knowledgeable and welcomed my many questions as clearly at this point. Clearly explained next steps. Facility is very clean and comfortable.Dr Chung explaining everything clearly and knowledgeably and did not rush. She allowed my daughter to take part in the visit via phone speaker.I am satisfied that at this point!

  • On the first visit I had my appointment marked done and sat for a long time (1hr) before I asked why the holdup was. They apologized and I proceeded with my mammogram. On the 2nd visit I found out how thin the walls were while waiting for results when another patient complained about me to the technician. That was embarrassing. Wish the walls were thicker or the technician had said something about other patients being able to hear them.

  • Everyone was very helpful and explained every they were going to do before they did it. There personality was also great where I felt relaxed and not frighten at all

  • Dr Maureen Chung and her staff are phenomenal and I feel blessed that I am in their able care.

  • I love Dr. Chung. She's very thorough. She answered all my questions and she explains everything very well. If I don't understand she explains it again. Love her.

  • Dr Chung came super prepared for my appointment and was able to confirm that I indeed did have the same gene as my mother who had breast cancer. [Name] her NP last year told me otherwise so this year I made appointment with the physician and all my questions and concerns were answered and she was prepared fully with all my information readily available. I was very appreciative of this.

  • My appointment was on time, and the Doctor was on time too.

  • Everyone is polite, helpful and patient.

  • Very responsive and open with information. Quick referrals. Thorough explanation of options.

  • When I had breast cancer everybody in Doctor Chung's office, actually everybody in the whole South Coast system that I had to deal with, which was many people, right down to the receptionists, I could not have asked for nicer, more caring people.

  • All staff members were very nice and courtesy. They showed concern for well being.

  • Dr. Chung is amazing. The front office staff and scheduling department were less than that. I was called at 1pm the day of a scheduled appointment with Dr. Chung because they realized that the office did not make an appointment for a mammogram before my meeting with Dr. Chung. When I was working and not able to hear the message to come in early, they appeared upset when I arrived for the originally scheduled time.

  • Everyone was very nice during the biopsy,especially [Name]

  • Very good service. The doctors and assistants are very friendly and exemplary professionals. What I think they need to improve is the conversation about the cost of the visits, because in my case it came a little late. I only learned that I would have to pay for consultations after several of them.

  • Very friendly people that seem to genuinely care about you

  • Great experience. Prior knowledge of what was going to happen during the biopsy helped a lot.The medical team worked very well together. I'd give them an A+.

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: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, 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.
