Patient Comments (7)
Pueblo, CO |
Rude & unprofessional office. Dr. Sunku was unable to understand my situation & ended my appointment. She is very rude. Please find another doctor. Don't waste your time trying to find parking only to be disappointed with your appointment. Will not return.

I have known Dr Sunku for 30 years. she has always been a very thorough and caring physician, with the patient's best interests as her goal. I have referred many patients to her over my career in Pueblo. I have seen her for medical issues myself, as has my wife. She has always thoroughly examined us, taken a good history, carefully reviewed xrays and lab tests, and always given us ample time for questions and her impressions. Pueblo is very fortunate to have her here!!!!!!!!

Billing is extremely rude, I've been blamed for their mistakes, Dr. Sunku doesn't listen to me and is only interested in what my husband has to say... But only partially listens to him, and she could make a decision if her life depended on it. Very disappointed.

Rude staff. She always rushes you out of the office without a diagnosis. I can't believe this thing has a medical license!!go back to where you came from.!

My mother saw Dr Sunku after having a stroke. After being realeased from a hospital in Loveland mom had to come stay with me. None of the doctors she saw in the hospital did anything to find out why she had her hemmoragic stroke. Dr. Sunku took the time to find out why and diagnosed her. My mom is 80 yrs old. She did a good job of explaining things to us. My mom is now fine and at home. I think Dr. Sunku cares and we apprciate everything she has done for my mom.

Dr. Sunku was through in her exam, acted quickly to do all tests and made time in her busy day to sit down with me to share results. she is competent, insightful, through and kind.
in Pueblo, CO |
Office staff is apathetic and patient care is lacking. Dr. Sunku is always in a hurry and does not explain condition or treatment thoroughly. We never feel like she has any time to answer questions, and rushes you out of there.
