Dr. Sun is both a good listener and communicator. His review of my medical history and the fact that he adjusts treatment and prescriptions make is clear to me that he understands my medical needs and does his best to offer the best treatment. He is an excellent doctor.

called the office for an appointment for a new problem and was told that it would be a 3-4 week wait which is ridiculous if one is coughing and having other issues. explained situation and was told to go to urgent care. Not an urgent care matter plus urgent care often times misdiagnose the problem. then offered an appt with someone else who doesn't know my history. my pulmonary [...] dr and cardiac dr's office more responsive and caring than this office

I received my flu shot, but the nurses refused to give my 95 yr old mother hers. We live 30 miles away from the office, so I was very disappointed when they said I would have to make another appointment and bring her back. I thought they were insensitive to her needs when she is a regular patient there.

10/14/2017
I love Dr. Sun. He always listens to what you have to say and explains everything in terms I can understand. He is very gentle and realy cares about his patients as a whole person. His nurse [...] is great too. She is very nice and always friendly and easy to talk to.

10/11/2017
I do not like that everything is online. I would like Dr. Sun to call me if it is important instead of me trying to understand what he wrote online. He added that my test showed something but I received no call from him. I was told that the Dr. does not call patients anymore. I found that disappointing. They said I could come in but I live an hour away and would have to take off time. If it is not that important I would like to have just heard from him by phone.
100

10/05/2017
Dr. Sun has a very good manner and always listens to what I have to say and answers all my question clearly and sincerely.

10/05/2017
Dr. Sun and his team saved me from a bad reaction to medicine another provider had prescribed and then not followed up. The Dr. at the gastrointestinal office, who prescribed the medication never gave me any idea how dangerous the medicine could be or did any follow up. thank goodness for Dr. Sun and his team. His staff got me in that day, and [...] his assistant treated me well and was concerned with my modesty as she gave me an EKG. I cannot say enough about Dr. Sun and his team for stabilizing me so I can see the GI guy who's office always says they can not get me in for a month!! Dr Sun is compassionate understanding and he worked to stabilize me and was available to help me a lay me fears, as the medication had made it so I could not eat or sleep. Thank you to Dr. Sun and his team!

Always a good experience with Dr. Sun and the staff. Could not ask for more.

08/30/2017
It is always nice to go visit Dr. Sun. I'd appreciate if your office would send me a reminder when annual physical check-up comes around.(my previous provider used to do that)
100

08/16/2017
very solid

Try to keep within the 15 minute appointment window. Time is valuable, especially when I had to wait for 30 minutes. Other than that excellent care and physician.

My insurance company approved a shingles vaccine for me in Burbank (A two-hour drive in Los Angeles traffic). Dr. Sun arranged for the vaccine to be sent to his office (5-minutes away from my home).
90

07/20/2017
My doctor made this appointment for me when he learned I was in an accident. Normally his appointments can be difficult to obtain in the near future. Signing in was very difficult. The desk people were kept busy by 2 people while 4 people waited patiently. Although I arrived for my appointment early, by the time I signed in I was late.

07/05/2017
there was a massive construction project going on. it caused delays everywhere and confusion. there were signs posted regarding the construction but signs are not friendly.
90

07/05/2017
Dr Sun is amazing & explains everything in detail but on my last visit I think he did not fully understand my question. When I said I had previously had a small problem with constipation he recommended a strong laxative. I do not think he understood that I do not have regular constipation. But this is not a problem & I will continue having faith in his decisions.

Good Experience

06/07/2017
I am the type of person who take an active role in my health options and as such, I may rend push harder than most for certain feedback. I'm the first to admit that I am not the easiest person to deal with, but Doctor Sun has shown great control and respect for my opinions and I feel comfortable in discussing all my health care needs with him openly. I respect his opinion.

The care provider offices need more than one X-ray technician. There is at least 1/2 hour wait time for x-rays.
100

05/03/2017
Dr Sun is excellent. you can tell he really cates about doing a good job for you. Office complex and rooms are looking tired and need updating. Clerical staff and receptionists seem like they don't like their jobs or patients. The office staff make me want to go somewhere else but Dr. Sun is so fantastic that I stay.
