No eye contact, Seems unhappy with her job. Tried to like her, made few appts to see her even after first terrible appt. All the nurses said she is really good at delivery but who really cares if she has no manners She is excellent at ruining your day

Dr. Sum is great, her office staff on the other hand is AWFUL. Finding a new doctor because of the lack of professionalism and respect when patients call with questions.
