Have seen Dr. Sunder for many years, have referred family and friends. I feel completely confident that her advice and continued treatment provide the best possible heart health for me. She explains things very well, has told me how my situation will progress, and has always been right. She takes all time necessary. Her staff is responsive and engaged. Would very much hate to ever have to change cardiologists.

Dr. Sunder is an excellent cardiologist that I would highly recommend. She takes the time to communicate and listen to help you understand complicated health issues. Her staff is also very helpful in getting you what you need whatever the request. I have full trust and confidence in her medical knowledge and expertise. This is my first trip to the cardiologist and know that I am in good hands for years to come.

I strongly recommend Dr. Sunder to anyone who is seeking a cardiologist. She takes her time and listens to you. She is kind, relaxed, well organised, and responds promptly to any message you send her. The staff is competent, helpful and friendly. She has been my cardiologist since I moved to Houston four years ago. I am more than satisfied with the care I receive from Dr. Sunder, and I think you will be too.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sunder for about 12 years. I value her knowledge, kindness and understanding. She always takes a lot of time to explain everything to you about your heart issues. Always very professional, as well as a very down to earth type person. I have the utmost respect and admiration for Dr. Sunder and would recommend her to anyone needing a great cardiologist!

Mary Koteras – Aug 06, 2020
Dr. Sunder is a one doctor office which is wonderful because you get such good attention and there are no mix ups due to a huge staff working for many doctors. Her new very nice receptionist takes your questions and you get called back the same day! (That did not happen with her old receptionist or at other heart doctor's offices I tried.) If you have an urgent need Dr. Sunder will stay late in her office to see you. My husband is also one of her patients and in this time of Covid she lets him come in with me so he can help my old brain remember what she says. (We are all masked of course!) Her wating room is very clean with space to keep people at proper distance. Her treatment is helping my heart a lot so I am very glad that my excellent Internal medicine doctor recommended her to me.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Sunder for several years. She helped me with the Cardiomyopathy and quitting smoking. She is one of the few doctors that will spend the time and listen to what you have to say. So if your waiting in the waiting room just chill. It’s not a production line with her.

Seeing a cardiologist is never an easy deal, but looking at the reviews helped ease my mind. Not believing the few to none bad ones and instead paying attention to the many wonderful comments left behind, they were not wrong! The office staff is small but very polite and helpful doing above and beyond to satisfy the patient. Truly recommend Dr. Sunder!

Lizbeth – Jul 19, 2019
I enjoyed being a patient of Dr. Sunder until i had to interact with her front office staff. They are (only two) very very slow individuals and could care less about satisfying her customers. They do not communicate with the patients on time, delays etc. when ask they look lost as not to know what to do or even care. One of the ladies i find here extremely rude and disengage (possibly too comfortable with her job and position). I arrive to my appointment early and signed in. After waiting for 30 plus minutes and saw other going a head of me. I went to the front desk t ask what is taking so long and when will i be seen. The main lady refuse to acknowledge my presence, which forced the other woman to respond by saying that i have two or three other patients ahead of me possibly sitting and waiting in the room. She offered no other option, if i wanted to reschedule...nothing she offered me nothing else. Dr. Sunder should realize that she is not the only cardiologist around.

The most wonderful experience i ever had at a doctors office, was obviously uneasy at first but boy did she calm me down tremendously! Such amazing bed side manner and she is so thorough; doesn't leave no stone un-turned. Then her staff is so courteous; her manager is very helpful and friendly and her medical assistant is so upbeat and actually treats you like a person. Definitely don't see that a lot anymore now a days. Would recommend her to anybody who wants a caring doctor!!
