Dr. Sunne has been a blessing to our family. My daughter is comfortable with her and doesn't shy away. She always puts us at ease as being new parents and gives practical advice and helps educate us so that my husband and I can give our daughter the best care.

Disappointed at check in desk. Was asked to use stylus to sign for insurance and there wasn't even hand sanitizer provided. Watched others use it and it wasn't cleaned in between patients. As a clinic that requires masks, temp screening, etc what is the point if you're going to have people sharing the same stylus and not even clean it in between

Dr. Sunne's regular nurse, was not my nurse this day. By the way, we love her! The nurse that was working that day, was not as friendly or pleasant as she is. We definitely missed her that day!

The front desk lady was on the phone both times I tried to talk to her, the last time I went there, there was no one at the desk! Could just as well NOT have anyone there. Waste of money.
February 25, 2020
Your the greatest

Her nurse was excellent, proactive by stepping in when mix up on my original appt time, and ended up taking care of me, listening to my situation, let me know there was walk in hours from 5-7pm.. this should be mentioned to others when conditions are pointing toward chest pain, etc.
February 09, 2020
Dr. Sunne and her staff were wonderful
February 06, 2020
I really appreciated that I could share my excitement with Dr. Sunne that I was training for a half marathon. I knew she'd be excited for me as I manage my health into my 40s.
January 30, 2020
When I was there, I tried to set up an appointment for a mammogram, and it took me to go to 4 receptionists before I could find one that wasn't too busy on their phone/computer to help me. One of them at least told me that she was too busy, and the other two ignored me. I did find one in Area C that was very helpful and kind.
January 29, 2020
I will always come here for my medical needs unless it's something we don't have here thanks I love my doctor!!!
