    | The Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD FAQ |
    | Version 3.1, February, 2004 |
    ---------------------------------

    Introduction
    ------------
    New people arriving in sci.med.cardiology (s.m.c.) are often puzzled and troubled by the vitriol
    directed at Dr. Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD (Dr. Chung) and want to better understand the reasons for
    the hatred that some folks have for Dr. Chung. This FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) does provide
    some truthful answers (there is a fake FAQ put out by detractors that is useful only for comparison
    purposes). All answers given herein can be independently verified either via Google or by visiting
    http://www.heartmdphd.com/.

    The FAQ is arranged in typical FAQ form, i.e. a series of questions followed by simple answers. For
    those who don't wish to read the whole FAQ, the following summary is provided.

    Summary
    -------
    Dr. Chung is a well-respected licensed cardiologist, who is board-certified in internal medicine and
    cardiology (cardiovascular medicine). In this capacity, he responds truthfully to medical
    questions on s.m.c. He does this out of sincere altruism when he has spare time outside his
    private cardiology practice, where he sees patients as a cardiologist. If that was all he were,
    there would probably be no controversy.

    The controversy arises from Dr. Chung being a genuine Christian, in particular:

    o He continues to publically profess that Christ is his Lord and Savior.

    o He freely helps people to lose weight in an altruistic Christian fashion
    (http://www.heartmdphd.com/wtloss.asp).

    o When attacked on the above issues, he turns the other cheek in a Christian manner.

    o When challenged about his faith in Christ, he witnesses steadfastly without hatred.

    o When insulted for his faith in Christ, he openly calls it a blessing.

    o He remains truthful, as a servant of Christ, despite being libeled and defamed
    (http://www.heartmdphd.com/libel.asp)..

    o Other Christians have affirmed Dr. Chung's strong faith in Christ.

    The above lists only the highlights of Dr. Chung's Christian behavior on
    D.r.a.. If anything, it understates it. Everything can be verified in the Google archives. He
    witnesses to all at http://www.heartmdphd.com/healer.asp.

    People arrive in this group looking for help. Dr. Chung has graciously provided this over several
    years. Dr. Chung consistently demonstrates the breadth of his knowledge and experience. This is
    archived many times over in Google.

    Chung (oh, sorry, I mean "A. B. Chung FAQ", wink, wink), I wish you would have responded to this a
    little sooner. We had a pool going on how long it would take you to forge the next version and I had
    "four hours". You let me down. I guess you were busy handing out all those "proceeds" to charity.

    Thanks for the kind attribution, although I am too humble to be able to accept it.

    A very Chungsmanlike piece of work. You still need to get a spelling checker however... or is it
    your claim that in case of a disagreement with the dictionary, the dictionary is wrong? That
    would figure.

    ..................

    Ya know, that's precisely what I asked of several people here when I first showed up a little over a
    month ago.

    Here's the quote:

    >Look, the way I see it - nobody here is perfect, least of all me.
    >
    >All I am saying is that if *everybody* here (Dr. Chung and his critics alike) would act responsibly
    >and make a best efforts attempt to stay on topic, which is CARDIOLOGY, in the end all - including
    >the newbies
    >- would be better off.

    Then I got attacked.
