Biography

Abraham Chyung, MD, is a neurologist specializing in the evaluation and treatment of memory and seizure disorders. With a doctorate degree in Alzheimer’s disease research, he has a strong clinical interest in conditions that cause memory loss.

Dr. Chyung has subspecialty fellowship training in epilepsy and is a co-director of the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Scripps Memorial Hospital in Encinitas. He has published peer-reviewed articles on the subject of both dementia and epilepsy.


He believes that open communication and listening are the foundations of lasting relationships, something that Dr. Chyung strives to establish with each of his patients.
