I've used Dr. Tung for about 5-years. Although now having a life-long battle with pain, he doesn't treat me like a drug seeking deviant because he knows I take 'personal responsibility' (remember that), for my med use. Although he monitors me closely, he never leaves me struggling in pain. I believe medications should serve me, not the other way around! Dr. Tung appreciates that character in his patients. That said, in Feb. of 2020, Dr. Tung performed an EMG test of my hand. That's the test where they stick needles into the meat of your hand to make contact with the nerves. VERY PAINFUL TEST! As usual, my anxiety was through the roof. Novocain can't be used as it interferes with the test. So, he used a 'topical freezing spray' to well numb the areas to be injected. Having done this for me, I felt almost no pain! I didn't even feel the needles go in. Because he sympathized with my fear of the pain (which few doctors do these days), he turned a painful procedure into one easily tolerated. When I explained how easy freezing made this test, he said he would make freezing part of his standard protocol for this procedure. Should you decide 'not' to use Dr. Tung, be INSISTENT with whatever doctor you use to pre-freeze the areas needed for an EMG. I highly recommend Dr. Tung! I give him 9 out of 10 stars. (I'll give him the 10th star when he starts serving "Hors d'oeuvres" in the waiting room).
Outstanding professionalism genuine caring for the patients. My surgeon spoke highly of this place to go through physical therapy for my knee surgery. I am almost done with treatment and am feeling wonderful and able to do everything I was able to do before surgery. I actually look forward to my appointments, I know Ill get one step closer to complete recovery and the atmosphere is one where all the patients talk and enjoy themselves.
I never write reviews but because of my exceptional experience at CORE Physical Therapy i wanted to take the time to do so. I cannot thank the therapists at CORE Physical Therapy enough. They worked hard to help me regain the range of motion I had lost after a car accident. I had also been experiencing excruciating back pain that is now gone thanks my therapist. I felt extremely at ease and respected from my first day there. The professionals there genuinely listened to my concerns and goals and worked skillfully to get me back to a point physically where i am enjoying life again and am free from pain. The front office staff is courteous, personable, and easy to work with. I have already referred one friend and two family members all dealing with various physical issues to CORE PT and will continue to do so.
I really had a great experience receiving Physical Therapy treatment sessions here for my Low Back Pain. All the staff members were very caring and welcoming with a great attitude and the PT who worked with me was exceptional. They not only treated my symptoms, but also helped me understand what the problem was and educated me on good body mechanics and posture. A very hands on and holistic approach.
I will highly recommend this place to any one who needs Physical Therapy.
I have experience bad therapy in the past, when i went to this company i was greeted with smiles, i been there for 4 weeks now and the staff are great, they take care of you with kids gloves and listen to the problem you have and act on it ASAP. Thank you for helping me get back to health. Keep up the good work and don't change the staff you have.
