Victor Chung, MD Reviews (142)

Rhinoplasty

Dr Chung provided honest and helpful feedback even though he knows that my daughter would be less likely to pursue surgery as a result

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Results were amazing and the entire experience was very pleasant.

Mohs Reconstruction

Dr Chung did an excellent job of explaining everything to me in a way that I would understand.

Mohs Reconstruction

Dr. Chung is professional and creates a sense of calm and peace during the procedure. He does an excellent job preparing the patient as to expectations for the surgery and the likely outcomes.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Expedient process in a nice environment.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Dr. Chung was being very honest and professional. I can tell based on my experience consulting other doctors who would exaggerate the condition of my facial features and recommend unnecessary plastic surgeries.

Mohs Reconstruction

Dr. Chung explained thoroughly what to expect during the procedure, how long the recovery should be and what to expect. I am pleased with how quickly my incision has healed and it looks better everyday.

Scar Revision

The interaction was efficient, professional, safe. The surgeon's kill is exceptional, leaving a very minimal scar in the short term and undoubtedly will be undetectable longer term.

Rhinoplasty

Doctor was very patient and very professional, satisfied with the result of my procedure. Very easy going.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I found Dr. Chung very personable throughout the visit. He listened to me and understood what I wanted to accomplish. I liked how he explained every step of the way what he was doing to do to achieve the results I wanted.

Mohs Reconstruction

The Doctor went over everything with me and was very nice. When I left the appointment I felt confident that I had made the right choice to schedule with him. Overall I am very happy with my experience.

Mole Removal

I expected to be intimidated and nervous during the consultation. Dr. Chung and the staff were friendly, engaging, and very kind. The experience was relaxed and professional, not intimidating at all. Thank you

Mohs Reconstruction

Dr. Chung is very detailed and thorough in explaining the procedure, as well as what to expect as the final results. He has a very calm demeanor which is very reassuring when you are having a procedure. Which is much appreciated. He truly is an artist when doing a reconstruction after Mohs surgery.

Mohs Reconstruction

Extremely detail oriented, thoughtful and comprehensive in explanation of process and maintenance, healing, etc.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Victor takes time to provide a thorough consultation, performing a 3D facial assessment and explaining why and where he wants to target the Botox. His nuanced approach leads to providing active guidance to the patient instead of just doing what they ask for without question. This results in a more natural appearance that ultimately makes me always go back to him.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Desk person was friendly and I was seen on time.

Mohs Reconstruction

I met with Dr. Chung pre-op, where he explained everything that was going to happen and gave a booklet with FQA. Surgery date, I was taken right on time. The result was great!

Mohs Reconstruction

Dr. Chung is a very direct doctor who answers all questions with facts. Some might think this is scary, but I love his realism, especially with the Moh’s reconstruction Surgery. He didn’t set any false expectations that “he was sure things would go well” and instead continuously reminds me that “we’re making lemonade.” He presented me with options and showed me what the surgery could end up looking like depending on how large the cancer on my face was. This gave me full visibility into the surgery I’d be having, and expectations for what might occur.

Septoplasty

Dr. Chung was incredibly thorough and the end results are perfect, especially compared to experiences friends have had with the same procedure but different doctors. He has designed his own recovery protocol which is far less painful and traumatic - no scraping, all soothing. From start to finish, Dr. Chung is state-of-the-art and the overall experience was far less uncomfortable for my daughter than we had been warned about and expected. We loved Dr. Chung's mantra: A wet nose is a healthy nose, is a happy nose.

Mohs Reconstruction

Two words - absolutely amazing! I had a very significant skin cancer removed on my face and I had resigned myself to the fact that I was never going to look the same. However, I followed Dr. Chung’s instructions exactly, and 6 weeks later I am stunned at the beautiful results. The scar is barely detectable! Very talented surgeon! [Single best thing is...] Dr. Chung’s surgical talent is amazing, but his calming reassurance about the procedure and the outcome was SO important and appreciated.
