Dr. Richard T. Chung, MD

Dr. Richard T. Chung, MD attended undergraduate school at Stanford University and medical school at the University of California, Los Angeles. In 1994 he completed his residency at Stanford in the field of radiation oncology. Fascinated by Alaska, Dr. Chung relocated to Anchorage that same year to practice his passion – oncology – at the Anchorage Radiation Therapy Center. Since then, he has been a champion of bringing new radiation therapy technologies to the community so that patients and their families can receive cancer treatment close to home. In 2006 Dr. Chung and the Anchorage Radiation Therapy Center opened a satellite facility to better serve the growing Mat-Su community.

“I have traveled to Alaska three times, and I have always wanted to live in Alaska. I am honored and feel fortunate to have joined Dr. Chung and Dr. Settle in delivering high-quality radiation therapy to anyone in need of this treatment. I look forward to a long-standing relationship with the Valley community and treating patients with the highest level of care.

From the time I was a child, I have always felt a calling to serve others. I am thrilled to be working in the Valley, continuing to follow my calling, and helping patients here that need radiation therapy.”
