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.

Try to keep within the 15 minute appointment window. Time is valuable, especially when I had to wait for 30 minutes. Other than that excellent care and physician.

My insurance company approved a shingles vaccine for me in Burbank (A two-hour drive in Los Angeles traffic). Dr. Sun arranged for the vaccine to be sent to his office (5-minutes away from my home).

My doctor made this appointment for me when he learned I was in an accident. Normally his appointments can be difficult to obtain in the near future. Signing in was very difficult. The desk people were kept busy by 2 people while 4 people waited patiently. Although I arrived for my appointment early, by the time I signed in I was late.

Dr Sun is amazing & explains everything in detail but on my last visit I think he did not fully understand my question. When I said I had previously had a small problem with constipation he recommended a strong laxative. I do not think he understood that I do not have regular constipation. But this is not a problem & I will continue having faith in his decisions.

I am the type of person who take an active role in my health options and as such, I may rend push harder than most for certain feedback. I'm the first to admit that I am not the easiest person to deal with, but Doctor Sun has shown great control and respect for my opinions and I feel comfortable in discussing all my health care needs with him openly. I respect his opinion.

Dr Sun first visit was great.I felt very comfortable with him.He was a great listener to my concerns and very willing to help out .The office staff was great and super accommodating.So far I am very happy with the services.However there is one issue with the Referral through [...] it takes forever to get a referral should not be this way if a patient needs to see a specialist for some kind of medical issue should have the privilege to see a specialist ASAP before the problem gets worse.I was referred to see a Dermetologist by Dr Sun and has been 14 days today and the referral is still pending this is totally unexceptble.Please note that [...] has self referral for 10 different specialists and more to be added on in the near future.Thank you so much and hope that this issue will improve in the near future.
