Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sun "Dr. Sun's philosophy of patient care has evolved from his medical training, his years in practice, and his personal experiences.

He believes that the decision to proceed with surgical vs. non-surgical treatment is best determined by considering the whole patient, not just his or her particular medical condition."
