Jeong was the lead in the ABC sitcom "Dr. Ken", in which he was also the creator, writer and executive producer.

Jeong received his medical degree in 1995 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, though he soon began moonlighting as a comic. Jeong appeared to think he was being heckled initially when the commotion started, then quickly responded when audience members let him know what was going on.

Although he no longer practices, he's a licensed physician in the state of California.
