Care Philosophy

My top priority in the first visit is to establish an accurate diagnosis.  A major part of my approach is taking a careful history including hearing the patient's words and recognizing his/her nonverbal clues. I examine the patient to confirm or rule out my suspicions. 

I use endoscopy (a thin flexible camera that can be inserted to view the nose and throat) when needed to investigate areas not visible on a typical physical exam. Endoscopy gives immediate information without radiation exposure. Of course, I do order scans when necessary, but never to substitute for a careful exam.

I tailor treatments individually for each patient. . I am mindful that patient's have out of pocket costs. I offer generics and nonsurgical treatments whenever possible.  Every patient will have a different treatment that is best suited for her/him.

We want the simplest, quickest, least expensive, least invasive, lowest risk, most effective treatment.  Obviously, no one treatment is going to fit all of those criteria, so my rule is that each patient choose his or her treatment with my nonjugdemental guidance.  My goal is to have as many as may patients achieve their desire outcomes by succeeding one patient at a time.

Yorba Linda, CA |
I really like Dr. Sun because he is professional, courteous and kind. He diagnosed my cancer and then operated on me twice and basically saved my face, which is very important to me (doh!). The office hours are so flexible and they work very hard to get you seen, even on short notice.

Very personable, put me at ease.
in Henderson, NV |
Dr. Sun was recommended to me by my family doctor. When I arrived, I was immediately greeted with a smile by the front desk receptionist. I didn't have to wait long before I got called back to the examination room. I was given an exam with an explanation as to what he was doing and why which put me at ease. I live in Nevada and wouldn't hesitate a minute to come back and see him if I needed to.
