Patient Comments (1)
in Ft Worth, TX |
Dr. Sun has been an exemplary neurosurgeon with my sister Mirna Galarza. After having experienced a major stroke on her right side, and an extended stroke, he took take of her removing her right side bone flap, and then reattaching the bone flap 6 months later. Her incision super clean and neat. Mirna very happy with the experience and care he showed while attending her. I hope that he can continue providing her with all the necessary care, and referrals. Thank you Dr. Sun.
