“I went to see Mr Chung for an incisional hernia, caused by a previous surgery (not performed by Mr Chung). I was keen to get it fixed - the hernia was quite unsightly and the scarring from previous surgery just horrific - but he explained to me that more time needed to pass after the initial surgery, for adhesions to soften and for my body to recover. While this was not the answer I was hoping for, it did make me feel very confident about Mr Chung as he was clearly not just focused doing the surgery, but also on choosing the optimum timing, which ended up being extremely important. Following a CT scan, Mr Chung referred me to a colleague of his and the plan was for the two of them to perform surgery together. This was classified as a complex hernia, and I am very grateful that Mr Chung made sure that he had the best team at hand. The surgery - although done privately - was unfortunately cancelled the day before it was supposed to take place, but this was not due to Mr Chung but rather one of the many lockdowns we all had to endure. In the end the hernia repair was done months later, and now I am recovering. Mr Chung is an outstanding surgeon and an all-round amazing guy. Direct when he has to be, considerate and understanding when needed, doesn't beat about the bush but also knows how to listen. I felt heard and understood and supported through has been the worst year of my life.“
