Patient Comments (3)
in New York, NY |
Appointments related to eye problems are primarily handled by interns assigned to this practice and other medical staff. Follow up for Perscription’s was handled by administrators with no consistency for followthrough. The paperwork for my Perscription for an eye condition was never handled to completion by the practice after multiple calls and requests. Telephone wait times for staff are long. Doctor did not return the single phone call made to request intervention.

Dr. Sun and her associates provided a range of diagnostic tests on my initial visit and arranged for additional diagnostic baseline tests for a 6 month follow-up. She took a thorough history and clearly heard concerns I had.
in Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Sun helped me treat my chronic red eyes without any medication, whereas my previous doctor was talking about performing surgery.
