The report card for each state contains the scores it received when we evaluated it for how well it protects patients against sexually abusive doctors. The overall rating is the average of the score the state received in each category. In states with two medical boards, one for osteopathic physicians and the other for medical doctors, the overall rating is based on an average of each board’s scores.

When a teenager went to a medical appointment, Chung injected her with a drug and she became groggy, a board order states. Then, when she realized her legs were propped up and her pants were off, she began crying.
“At this point, Dr. Chung came between the legs of the minor female and began to abuse her,” the board order says. “The minor female immediately passed out.”
In 2015, Chung’s wife discovered video of him having sex with unconscious women and a minor in his office. She and the teen went to police.
Chung was indicted on numerous counts involving victims he was accused of drugging and raping.
It was not the first time Chung had come to the attention of police and the medical examiners board, though. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that he had been arrested in 2006 and accused of open and gross lewdness with a 15-year-old patient. But the police case was sealed after he completed community service, and the board issued only a “letter of concern” that was supposed to be a nonpublic reprimand.
A criminal case is pending.
“The minor female immediately passed out.”
— Board order in the case of Dr. Binh Minh Chung, describing the allegation by a teenage patient that he began to abuse her after she had been injected with a drug that made her groggy.
The Board of Medical Examiners and the Board of Osteopathic Medicine can negotiate a remediation agreement with doctors believed to have committed any violation. And while the agreement itself is a public record, the boards are required to remove the name of the doctor.
