Patient Comments

  • May 14, 2019

    The interaction was very positive, Dr. Hung was very thorough took his time was very patient and very informative in given options to me and reviewing my case. I felt very comfortable with him.

  • May 09, 2019

    Never hurried or distracted, always supportive and cheerful. Answers all questions and explains in plain language. I saw him wheeling an elderly wheelchair-bound patient back to the waiting room himself, still conversing and supporting that patient. Honest when he doesn't know an answer or when medical science doesn't know an answer. Dr. Hung is "one of the good ones." Absolutely superb.

  • May 09, 2019

    So knowledgeable, friendly, supportive!

  • May 09, 2019

    Every visit to OHSU has been great. The staff is discreet, professional, and caring(having cancer is pretty daunting).

  • May 09, 2019

    Went in for a conference on radiation therapy for my prostate cancer. Dr. Hung and his associate answered all my questions with the utmost professionalism, honesty, and integrity.

  • May 03, 2019

    Okay, this is [Name] Dr. Hung was extremely knowledgeable, made me feel at ease, explained what needed to be done. And he also said he was going to mail or send my records and recommendation to Cancer Society or Cancer [Name] in Roseburg, [Name] The man is really good. I enjoyed speaking with him. And if I had anybody that had the same problem is me, I'd be more than happy to recommend Dr. Hung to them. Thank you very much.

  • May 03, 2019

    Always good. My cancer is undetectable thanks to Dr. Hung and all.

  • May 01, 2019

    Yes, it was a very good experience at Dr. Hung. I was really surprised that there was still some time left on the ... on the recovery. I thought that I was not going to get better over time, that after 6 month was basically where it's going to be but he assured me that we were ... I was still in the process and I was right on the time line that he expected to have a full ... to have a recovery from this ... from this radiation treatment. So it was very helpful to me and took away a lot of anxiety to sit down with him and have this discussion that we had, and he gave me some pointers of what to do and how to proceed from here and that he was going to help me out with some ... some medication in the interim and that was very helpful. I'm done.

  • Apr 22, 2019

    I think it was very good experience. The doctor's very competent, he's very....he has good outreach, answered all our questions and I'm hopeful and he encouraged me to be hopeful and his bedside manner was a 10 and my wife also liked him very much. So, I would like to recommend him to anybody who needs the same type of services that I received. Thank you.

    Always a pleasure to talk to Dr. Hung.

  • Apr 19, 2019

    Hi, I'm [Name] and my experience with Dr. Hung was the best that I could have asked for. I couldn't have gotten anyone better. He was great, he was very caring, very conscientious about my...what was wrong with me, and how to figured out the best way to fix it, and I would recommend him...highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you.

  • Apr 19, 2019

    I have been going to OHSU for the last two years and I trust the doctors there. The only thing I have that is negative is the amount of time I spend waiting to see the doctor after I have checked in.

  • Apr 18, 2019

    Provides very clear instructions and is willing to listen and discuss my issues. Very pleasant doctor to work with.

  • Apr 17, 2019

    Dr. Hung has been providing me with "to notch" guidance through my prostate cancer treatment. Of all the doctors that I have experienced he is one of the best. I highly recommend him.

  • Apr 04, 2019

    Dr Hung and his associate resident were informative, engaged and helpful. I could not ask for a better consult experience.

  • Apr 04, 2019

    Dr. Hung is very professional as well as personable. He takes and interest in his patients and their issues.

  • Apr 02, 2019

    He certainly knows radiation therapy and how it complements the entire package of treatment options. I get the feeling because he has so many patients and each usually not for an extended period of time.........he really doesn't get a chance to know his patients that well. I really don't think that matters so much. I have confidence in him.

  • Mar 22, 2019

    Fabulous and very professional. I’m sure anyone would receive the same type of care.

  • Mar 20, 2019

    friendly,intelligent,full explanations,answered any questions,feel very comfortable in the approach to treatment,and handing over control, 10 gold stars,confident that I am with some the best there are.

    My experience was a great flow of information from Dr. Hung and his side kick. I could not ask for anything better. Both spoke very well of OHSU and provide me with information I needed. I will be back in a few weeks to see them and also have tests run on me. My first major health problems was many years ago and Dr.Lowe worked on me. I have had very good service from OHSU.God Bless All

  • Mar 12, 2019

    Well, apparently the results I got from the treatment there are working and I don't know what else I can say. It makes me very happy.

  • Mar 06, 2019

    Am presently given periodic 'follow-up' appointments as regards radiation treatments received in Jan. and Feb. of 2018. This recent visit went fairly smoothly w/ only a short amount of waiting. More importantly, Dr. Hung was very attentive to my personal experience of residual effects and of the commentary I provided to express some physical concerns that will also be covered in future follow-up visits.

  • Feb 22, 2019

    Everyone did a great job with regards to assessing my case and making reservations. He called me at home prior to the appointment to go over some impertinent facts. He is a wonderful doctor and I appreciate all of this care.

  • Feb 19, 2019

    Yes, the provider was very educational, very thorough, extremely knowledgeable in what he was doing, and made me feel very much at ease. Thank you.

  • Feb 07, 2019

    When the doctor entered the room he was able to put everyone to ease. He was easy to talk to described what was going to occur how it was going to occur very proficient. I found it just an enjoyable discussion, even though it was a very serious topic.

  • Feb 02, 2019

    Yeah, it wasn't very efficient way to do things. I appreciate it. Getting in and getting out and that's about it.

  • Feb 01, 2019

    Dr. Hung is a super doctor, he is undoubtedly one of the best radiation oncologists in North America. I researched him thoroughly before I went to meet him. I was amazed that he has a 4.9 out of 5 rating over more than 420 reviews. I read the reviews, they are all glowing, and in the reviews he is described as being nice, caring, funny, compassionate, knowledgeable, confident, efficient, effective, and more, and, based on my meeting with him I can tell you that all those things are true. He is a remarkable doctor. I am so very fortunate that I was able to become his patient.

    Hi, I'm giving you some feedback about about Dr. Hung. My name is [Name] and I can say nothing but wonderful things about Dr. Hung can pretty much the entire radiation department. I was treated so wonderfully there. I felt so cared for so listen to and just a wonderful wonderful person. And I think when people are going through hard times with their health, it really helps to have so kind and sensitive people who are also quite knowledgeable and can answer your questions. And I really like Dr. Hung very much. So that's what I have to say.

  • Jan 26, 2019
