Dr. Sunkara and staff has always taken the time to go over any questions that you may have and really listens to what is going on in your life and doesn't just push as many people through as he can. He is a great dr. and has a great staff.

Dr. Sunkara is my PCP. He and his staff are professional and very friendly. After 10 years as his patient I think so highly of him that my son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter are his patients as well.

I have never found a doctor that actually listened and cared. he takes time and the extra mile for his patients. Marina and Wendy are as wonderful as well. I hardly ever wait and that is great. I highly recommend him to all my friends that would need his services.
