We are truly blessed, thank you!!!

Dr. Sun and his team are the greatest!!! First of all thanks to all of you. Because of you guys my daughter is doing great. Their team and The Children's Hospital treated us really great. Our experience was really scary for us, and you guys helped us get through it as if it was your own family going through it. God bless you all and thank you for being there for us and everything that you did to make this happen. To all the people and to all the parents if you are seeing Dr. Sun, I know what you are going through must be pretty tough, what helped us with the worrying was to hear someone else say you are in good hands if not the best hands out there, and not just Dr. Sun, his whole team and the hospital. I wish everyone the best outcome possible and god please bless this team to keep doing what they do!!! THANK YOU!!!

More about Dr. Peter P Sun

Peter P. Sun MD, is a devoted and extraordinarily skilled pediatric neurosurgeon. He is committed to providing the highest quality care to his patients. He grew up in Taiwan and Los Angeles, speaks English and Mandarin Chinese, and values his bicultural heritage. Dr. Sun believes that “having another cultural background always adds more perspective.” His father and other family members came from the business world, but Dr. Sun was determined to chart his own course. “I wanted to do something where there was value beyond money.” As a child he was fascinated with the brain and nervous system. Later, as an undergraduate at the University of Southern California, he studied psychobiology, received a bachelor’s degree and went on to medical school at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. There, Dr. Sun discovered that the nervous system was “the most elegant in the body,” and realized that the surgical approach to “fix things” was the best fit for his skills and personality. He decided to pursue neurosurgery, one of medicine’s most demanding subspecialties.
