Dr. Sun and the staff were fantastic with my daughter. Dr. Sun removed a cyst from my daughter's head/skull. The scar is practically invisible. I am so pleased.
in Sparks, NV |
We were told that this Dr had all of my daughter's records, MRI etc and when we saw him we would have plan for treatment. Well he DIDNT have any of her records. He copied the ones *I* brought in with me. He acted like he'd never even heard of her.(Our referring physician said she'd talked to him at length about our daughter) He didn't even examine her to talk to her. She parted her hair and he looked at her scar from last surgery and told us he's Not a pain doctor.
