"When I found out I had to have Coronary Artery Bypass surgery I was really scared. When you receive news like this you can't help but think about your mortality. As I laid in my room at Cedar-Sinai in walked Doctor Joshua Chung. He was there to discuss my up coming surgery. The moment he spoke a calm came over me. This is a Doctor that truly cares, is compassionate, humble and totally dedicated to his patient. As busy as he is, he took the time to answer all our questions and put all our fears to rest. Doctor Joshua Chung, THANK YOU. You are truly a MENDER OF BROKEN HEARTS."
