caring, skilled surgeon, helpful and pleasant team.

Dr Sun operated on my son Joel Zuniga in January 2014 when he was 2 years old. Joel was diagnosed with brain cancer known as ATRT and statistics say a 10% chance of survival. I'm happy to say Joel will be 6 in June and I truly believe Dr Sun was the beginning of his healing! Thank you to an awesome neurosurgeon!

Dr. Sun is an amazingly skilled surgeon who has a warm and caring demeanor with both his pediatric patients and their parents. His support staff was very helpful and attentive, and they were prompt and thorough with any questions or concerns we had. Dr. Sun has an outstanding reputation, and we feel so fortunate that our son was able to receive care from Dr. Sun and his staff.

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.

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.
