Feodor Ung, MD
Otolaryngology - ENT
I believe in a collaborative approach to patient care with shared decision making. This starts with listening carefully to my patient’s symptoms and concerns to better understand their medical condition. I strive to educate my patients regarding their diagnosis and provide them with a thorough understanding of the available treatment options. I hope to select a treatment plan with patient input that will deliver the best possible clinical outcomes by taking into consideration their health care goals and lifestyle. It is my privilege to be part of your health care team.
