Dr. Chris Chung
“I have a passion for dance medicine. I’ve worked years with dancers from a variety of all disciplines.”
Chris Chung, MD was raised in Claremont, California. He did his undergraduate studies at UCLA, and as luck would have it, met a new next door neighbor by the name of Anthony Saglimbeni. That friendship has had a huge impact on Dr. Chung’s journey to South Bay Sports and Preventive Medicine Associates.
Dr. Chung received his medical degree from St. Louis University, in St. Louis, Missouri, and continued his education by returning to UCLA for his family medicine residency. Following completion of that program, he moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, for his sports medicine fellowship. He is board certified in Family Medicine, with the added CAQ in sports medicine.
He relocated to San Jose in 2002 after working for several years with a medical group in San Diego. He sees patients for both primary care and sports injuries. He has a special interest in dance medicine and has worked for years with dancers from a variety of disciplines.
His volunteer activities include being the Team Physician for King’s Academy High School, Mountain View High School, and Coyote Creek Pop Warner Football. Other activities included a volunteer medical mission in the Philippines in 2001.
