*Dr. Sung and his team are the best.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2021
Excellent grasp of my concerns. His instructions for tracking oxygen levels & heart rate during exercise probably solved the issue.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2021
all dr/nurses took the time to explain all the tests [my wife] had done. i have no doubt that had we not come to NJH we would not have found out what her medical problems were.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2021

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2021
Loved *Dr. Sung! I've already recommended him. He was supportive of my KETO diet and was going to recommend it possibly to some patients. Most doctors disregard it or don't know much about it.
