Gastrointestinal Health

Gastrointestinal health is one of the main areas of focus for Dr. Jung. She has worked extensively alongside patients with pre-diagnosed conditions such as: irritable bowel syndrome, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), leaky gut, heartburn, inflammatory bowel disease, as well as those with symptoms such as: bloating, constipation, diarrhea, stomach pain, and more. She thoroughly believes that many diseases begin in the gut, and understands our gut is linked to so many other non-GI conditions such as anxiety, depression, and more.

Hormones & Thyroid

One of Dr. Jung's passion is helping people find their hormone balance. Over the years, she has worked with numerous patients to optimize and balance hormones for premenstrual syndrome (PMS), PMDD, peri-menopause/menopause, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and thyroid conditions (hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Grave's disease and more). She has also worked closely with male patients looking to optimize their testosterone levels as well. 

Dr. Jung does offer comprehensive hormone testing, as well as hormone replacement therapy to those who are candidates for this therapy.

Long COVID Consultation

During her position as a chief resident doctor, Dr. Jung created a Long COVID group medical visit program for patients suffering from long COVID symptoms. She continues to see many patients with long COVID, whose doctors have exhausted all conventional options. She works closely with patients and their conventional doctors to improve quality of life and mitigate disease progression.

Health Optimization

Absence of disease does not mean a person's body is at their most optimal state. Dr. Jung works with her patients to take an in-depth look of their health status, even with patients without any pre-existing health conditions, to help optimize their health. 

Aside from these areas of practice, Dr. Jung has advanced training in heart health, diabetes and other metabolic conditions, stress management, allergies and immune health, and more.
