One of the most thorough, kind, and engaging specialty neurologists I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Dr. Sun took the time to get to know me and my concerns, and she came up with a game plan moving forward. After I left the clinic, I asked myself why I did not try the NW Medicine Neurology Group sooner? I feel very confident in the care all the health care providers provide!

She is a good communicator, and would have been helpful early on when I first developed symptoms. However, she seemed unprepared for my appointment and didn't seem aware of my previous tests. My stated goal was to discuss treatment options for symptoms management, and very little of our appointment focused on this. This led to a very redundant appointment, as most of our time was spent with her explaining the nature of my condition, when this is already something I'm very familiar with and very little time on discussing concrete recommendations or referrals for managing my condition. I've also been really frustrated with my ability to communicate with the office regarding the referral, scheduling, and most frustrating, the letter and documents I requested to be provided to her weren't provided to her before our appointment.

This was the first appointment with Dr. Sun since my former neurologist left the area. Dr. Sun made me very comfortable as if she had been my doctor all this time.

Dr. Sun performed a nerve-path test after the first one that was done at Northwestern was botched. Dr. Suns test on the other hand, showed exactly what was causing my condition. In clinic the next day, Dr. Sun explained exactly what is wrong with my brachial plexus. She showed me test results and images from an earlier MRI which made it easier for me to understand my condition. Her proposed treatment plan also makes perfect sense. One of the most important things Dr. Sun said was Å“you will get well.? She said it will take time, as much as one to two years of physical therapy. I was so disheartened by my condition, but Dr. Sun has given me hope which truly is priceless.
