Patient Praise: “I was seen by Dr. Sundstrom and what a blessing he was. He’s VERY kind and personable, he listens to your concerns and takes your health and well-being as his primary responsibility; I can’t say enough good things about this young doctor. Even my husband was very impressed with Dr. Sundstrom. The surgery was scheduled first thing in the morning the following day (he fought for that) and he did a great job at it.”
