I considered to recommend Dr. Sun to others because he is very professional and patience with my mom. He takes his time explaining to me step by step the progress of her diabetic illness. He is one the few doctors that is never in a rush at consultation time. He is kind, funny and treat my mom and myself with respect.

Elizabeth Paradise in Riverside, CA – Sep 08, 2016
I accompany my patient to her visits here. She has various specialists so we are in and out of doctors offices quite often. When we visit Dr. Sun in his office it always runs very smoothly from the front staff to the short wait time if that at all. Dr. Sun is very personable extremely professional but will also crack a joke from time to time. Dr. Sun takes his time with my client when we visit which is so greatly appreciated as we visit other places and it is rushed. Great experience here.
