"I like the way they treat me at the ICHS Holly Park Clinic."
My ICHS provider Scott Sato listens to me and asks questions. He’s a good guy.
My name is Chaung Ung. I am 57 years old and I am originally from Cambodia. I have been a patient at ICHS for about 20 years. There are four people in my family and we all come to ICHS. My son is 19. He goes to college in Massachusetts. My daughter is 17 and she goes to Cleveland High School.
Life in Cambodia is a lot different. I like it better here. I came to the U.S. in 1981 and arrived in Seattle by airplane. I came by myself. At first, I worried because I didn’t speak the language. So I studied English in school.
I used to do landscaping work. I’ve had a stroke three times so I cannot work anymore. My memory and the way I walk and do things are not like before. My last stroke was in 2017. The doctor said, “You are lucky.” I have a pacemaker and I take medicine.
I like the way they treat me at the ICHS Holly Park Clinic. I live nearby and I can walk there. My ICHS provider Scott Sato listens to me and asks questions. He’s a good guy. He tells me to exercise. I like to go outdoors and feel the sunshine. I'll walk around the block three, four, five times.
