Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

I was able to view my test results on mychcart so the office did not have to contact me. Dr. Sun exemplifies the missions core values. He is compassionate, knowledgeable, and takes his time with his patients. He always goes above and beyond to work with me in order to meet our health goals with my plan of care. He is a wonderful provider and I could not ask for anyone better. Thank you Dr. Sun!!!

My issues are constant pain in my back and now wrists. I rarely get asked how my back is anymore and my visits are short and infrequent. […] I keep thinking since this was where I met Dr. […] whom I have always thought was the best doctor I ever had, I should keep going to you but I am on the verge of moving on. I need a doctor who is willing to talk to me about my issues and help me decide how best to resolve them. I feel like I have been on my own for some time now and that is not where I want to be at 59.

We have the most confidence in Dr. Sun as he is alway thorough, considerate, knowledgeble and most importantly, competent!
100

02/08/2016
Dr. Sun is the best. I am a highly skilled RN who performs extensive research on any issue I think I may have. Dr. Sun, unlike some physicians, reads my findings, listens attentively, discusses my concerns and what I feel might be my "diagnosis." He is the epitome of what a highly skilled, self confident physician should be and truly understands that this is a partnership. He is meticulous to detail, explains the treatment plan and teaches. Let me assure you that I am the first to complain if I feel the treatment is substandard, and this includes condescending physicians. I hope you realize what a treasure you have in Dr. Sun […].

02/08/2016

Dr Sun is an excellent primary care provider. He has gone out of his way to give accurate in-depth explanations to me of various health issues, so I can make and informed decision about treatment. He is very kind and respectful, it's easy to relax and talk to him. He makes sure I get all the tests I need to effectively monitor my health issues. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone in need of a primary care physician.
