Care Philosophy

I see patients in the context of their lives, and I help them address every aspect of coping with and combatting serious infectious disease."

After ending up in the hospital multiple times with incompetent doctors who misdiagnosed me, I finally got in with Dr Sullivan who is a gem! One of the only doctors I've ever encountered who took the time needed to accurately diagnose me. He is a thorough and smart man. I highly recommend him as an infectious specialist!! Thank you Dr Sullivan!!!!!!! ??

Dr Sullivan has been involved with my health care for nearly 9 years and has given me superb attention on a variety of serious health challenges. His medical judgment has always been confirmed by desired results. And during the course of treatment, he has given me extraordinary time to listen to my views about my conditions and to consider quality of life impacts of various treatment. He also brings compassion and good humor to difficult situations.

I've been a patient of Dr. Sullivan for the past 15 years. He's extremely thorough during my visits and takes copious notes during consultations with patients. I'll never forget the time when I called Dr. Sullivan because I wasn't feeling well. He called me back when I was in the ER, remembered my medical background, and spoke to the ER physician right before she was going to discharge me. He asked the doctor to conduct one medical test, and that test saved my life! Dr. Sullivan is also funny!

Dr. Sullivan is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor who helped me manage an HIV diagnosis very successfully, both medically as well as mentally/emotionally. Big thumbs up! He will take the necessary time to talk to you about whatever your needs are ant will never make you feel rushed or feel like you're just a number.

Dr Sullivan did not accurately read my chart. He indicated to me that I should listen only to him and not my other physicians and you will be dead by Saturday if you don't listen to me.
