So sorry for your family's loss. Dr. Chung was a respected member of our community & hospital family. I enjoyed working with him & remember how he'd call out our names down the hall to come make rounds with him, making sure his patients understood his "accent." He had a good sense of humor & a compassionate heart. He was a good man.

Dr. Chung brought a service to our community hospital that helped develop us to a Regional Hospital system. He attracted patients from many surrounding areas with his expertise and care. I have many fond memories working with him He was a good man and a Great Physician. May GOD be with your family.

Dr. Chung was a truly a pioneer, a skilled surgeon, and an honorable man. He brought state of the art urological care to the southwestern counties of North Carolina and helped make a small community hospital into a respected regional hospital. Those of us who were privileged to work with Dr. Chung, particularly in those early days, can attest not only to his medical expertise but also to his patience and humor as we learned to communicate. Excellence is the word that comes to my mind when I think of Dr. Chung, his career, and the example he set for those who come after.

I first met Dr. Chung at Fairview Elementary where I was a teacher assistant and worked with his son Chris. After attending nursing school I worked with Dr. Chung at the hospital. He was very intelligent and was a good doctor to his patients. Prayers for the family.
