Dr. Sun has been a very knowledgeable and investigative doctor looking into my several conditions which seem to have impacts on the several conditions. Dr. Sun seems very thorough in checking out the areas of gastroenterology as well as having coordinated with cardiologists and rectal surgeons in Kansas City. Dr. Sun has thoroughly explained the alternatives, coordinated with other medical professionals and provided information as to the repercussions of the procedures and results expected.

Dr. Sun is my hero! I have two gastrointestinal autoimmune diseases. After experiencing poor care from other doctors, which ended me up in the ICU, I needed to find a better doctor. Dr. Sun is the first Gastro doctor of mine to really pay attention to what I was telling him. He took the time to look into what was really wrong and he talked with me and my husband about my options. He has helped me find comfort in knowing that I have a caring doctor to turn to when my health is in need.

I received excellent care from Dr. John Sun. After researching many physicians, his qualifications, experience, and education are what led me to him. His competence, common sense and caring disposition are what made me follow him to another practice to continue under his care. He is as fantastic of a person as he is a skilled physician. I appreciated his knowledge and application of recent research. Because of his guidance and good game plan, my health has been restored under his care.

I had a GI that I was seeing for a few years due to Crohn's, and felt he never actually listened to me. Every time I told him something was bothering me he replied with a condescending remark. Finally made the switch to Dr Sun, and the difference was night and day. He listened, showed empathy, and put a plan on the table. Ran a few tests, and boom he found multiple issues that required surgery. I'm back on my feet, and feeling great now thanks to his help. I'll forever be thankful for his help.
