I most certainly would I found her to be a great communicator to find out exactly what my problem’s were and I have had many on several visits so you see I my self have returned because I was very much helped by seeing her. I also wanted to say I was concerned about not having Insurance but I found her out of pocket cost fair. And well worth it. Thank you Dr Sum.

I had a bad foot infection. It went unnoticed by my family and urgent care, but she identified it quickly and treated it before it became worse.

Dr Sum has been treating my feet for the past year. Her treatments for toe nail fungus, ingrown toenails and dry skin on feet all worked. Dr Sum is awesome. She also treats my husband’s feet. We highly recommend her.

Great experience! Dr Sum removed an ingrown toenail. There was zero pain before, during, or after the procedure. I was able to schedule this for a Saturday and I was in the exam room within 5 minutes of my scheduled appointment. The Dr put me at ease and was done in no time. I will defiantly go back for all my foot related needs.

Dr. Sum took care of my mom’s foot problem and done a great job when she first started her practice here in Houston 15 years ago. Now this year when I had ankle problems, she also take a great deal of patience and experience ease my pains. She listens and explains all my concerns with friendly smile and firm answers. I always walked out of her office knowing what to expect next. That confidence sure played a big role in my recovery process. I strongly recommend Dr. Sum for you if you ever needed Podiatrist.
