I really like Dr. Sum. She is very straight-forward with me, explains things (risks, options, etc) in plain English. She is not a bubbly person super talkative person, so if that's what you are looking for, I would not recommend Dr. Sum. But she is very knowledgeable, listens to my concerns, provides me suggestions and took no chances during my two pregnancies. My husband didn't appreciate her bedside manner, but I appreciate her candor and calm nature.

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.
Park Ridge, IL |
I met Dr. Sum for the first time today and she seemed like she was in a rush and barely had time for me. The exam rooms are quite small, and with my husband sitting in the chair by the door and myself on the exam table, she seemed to push herself past us whenever she needed to get by. She also kept avoiding eye contact and looking everywhere else like she didn't want to be there. I will be avoiding seeing her again.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
