He was extremely warm and made sure that I completely understood each step he took and any test results that came in. He took care to fully answer my questions and ensure I was calm in an otherwise stressful situation. Ireally appreciated seeing him and, while I hope I won't have to return to a cardiologist, I would not hesitate to go back to him should the need arise.

Dr Sun is the best doctor I've ever had. He's stopped working as a primary care practitioner, so I'll have to move on, but for the last six years he's been with me through health thick and thin. If you need a cardiologist, see him. He's great!

Dr. Sun and office staff are very professional. I like them. The only problem is I got sick back in March, I called the office to see the Dr. and the secretary told me he can't see me right away thatI have to make an appointment (if you are sick you can't wait). I was very disappointed it. I went to the hospital instead. Next time I visit him will informed the Doc and depending on his answer I will stay or change doctor.
