About David C. Kung, MD

  • Dr. Kung grew up in Victoria, TX, and enjoys “running in the great outdoors – I even did the Austin Marathon!” He also likes to shop for fresh foods to cook at home, traveling to learn about new cultures, and meeting new people to learn their stories. His favorite spots in Central Texas are Barton Springs pool in the summer, Lady Bird Lake in the spring, and McKinney Falls for hiking in the fall/winter months.

I chose rheumatology as a specialty because it allows me to treat a wide range of people of all ages, and to follow and help them through the rest of their lives. Often rheumatological disease can be very debilitating and it is rewarding to see the change we are able to make in their lives. I believe in having meaningful conversations to develop insight into my patients’ understanding of their condition, their needs and priorities, possible limitations or cultural considerations. Developing lasting patient-physician relationships helps me facilitate a deeper understanding of their condition and helps me navigate the sometimes confusing treatment options so each can choose the best evidence-based treatment that fits his or her needs.

    Liked as there were questions the doctor answered

  • November 9, 2022

    I had some lab work done, the technician was great. I believe the doctor needed to see some of those results Before any recommendations for future treatment could be determined

  • November 9, 2022

    Dr. Kung was kind and attentive and actively listened to my concerns. He made sure he had answered all my questions and talked to me through the entire procedure. He was wonderful.

    Spends time to explain things.

  • November 7, 2022

    Dr Kung is always awesome.

  • November 2, 2022

    Not to my expectation. Plus I found out results of 3 yrs ago that I never knew about. This is not the first time it happens. Dr actually went off of results from back then instead of checking for any progress with new images. However I love the fact that he took HIS TIME explaining and making sure all my questions were answered. He seemed very knowledgeable!
