About David C. Kung, MD

  • Dr. Kung has relocated his practice from ARC South 1st to ARC Four Points and will continue to see patients at ARC Medical Plaza Specialty. His last day at ARC South 1st was Wednesday, February 28, 2024. Read letter.

    Dr. Kung recommends the following rheumatology physicians at ARC Southwest for patients want to stay in South Austin:


    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, needs, 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.

    The only feedback I would give is for the lab tech who did my blood draw wasn’t friendly and seemed annoyed that I was there. I know people have off days so I am hoping that’s all this was.
