I started seeing Dr. Kung for acne scars a few years ago, and have seen huge improvement in my skin texture since coming to her office for laser treatments. Truly one of the best gifts I have given myself! Dr. Kung is one of the best doctors I have ever come across. Not only is she friendly, kind and highly knowledgeable, Dr. Kung and her amazing team of staff treat patients with the highest level of care and compassion. That's why she's the go-to dermatologist for me and my family when it comes to any skin-related needs/problems. Highly recommended!!!

Dr. Kung is truly exceptional; her expertise really shined through when my mom sought her for treatment. She came recommended by a trusted friend and we can't agree more. We had gone to two other dermatologists before and the attention we received here at her practice vs the others, was night and day. Dr. Kung took the many necessary steps to get us a proper diagnosis. Once we started treatment, she made sure she took extra care to provide advice, support, and addressed the overall treatment plan for short term and long term as needed. She even referred us to another doctor, someone with similar credentials and much closer to my mom's home, in consideration of her commute. Dr. Kung and her staff goes above and beyond. It's this personal touch that makes all the difference. Dr. Kung's attention to her patients are above par. She was very thorough on each visit and responded to medical questions in a manner and language we both understood. Dr. Kung is multi-lingual so that was extra helpful to us. We liked that she understood the Eastern methodology way of thinking vs the Western methodology for treatment - this was extremely helpful when addressing questions we had regarding diet, medicines, and what an ideal patient should do in the given situation. Her sincerity and candor was so refreshing and welcoming. I recommend her without hesitation.

As a patient of Future Bright Skin for over 3 years, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr.Kung as one of the best dermatologists in Manhattan. My husband and I have sought out Dr. Kung for various dermatology services, including psoriasis care, mole removals, and cosmetic skin care procedures. Each experience has been exceptional, with precision and utmost care. Dr. Kung always takes the time to listen to our concerns and answers our questions patiently. She is knowledgeable and her expertise is remarkable. You always leave the clinic armed with suggestions and tailored treatments that address our needs. The clinic itself is bright and pristine and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. You want a modern environment from a top-level dermatology clinic. The entire team, from the receptionists to the nurses, particularly Mindy and Hanna, are warm, approachable, and genuinely interested in providing the best possible care. If you’re in search of an excellent dermatologist, Dr. Kung at Future Bright Skin is the one to see. Her expertise, personalized care, and welcoming clinic make for an exceptional patient experience.
