Dr. Sungurlu is energized and passionate about what she does. I felt like I was in the right hands from my first visit.
Mar 18, 2022
I have already told 3 other people about the care I received at this office. I am pleasantly surprised after not so great visits to other providers. I appreciated the care of treating me like a whole person with feelings and not just looking at the symptom/condition and sending me off. Great team!

Dr Sungurlu was down to earth and an excellent listener. I felt like I was a priority to her and she took her time with me during our visit.I appreciated how easy she was to talk to and confide in.I appreciated not feeling rushed and her explaining details of my care to me. I am grateful I was able to get an appointment with her without having to wait many months as well.

Dr. Sungurlu has always taken extra time to talk through any concerns my husband or I have. She never makes me feel like a burden or like she's rushed (even when I know for a fact she is). I always recommend her to all my girl friends & have one hundred percent confidence in her.

The check in process is easy and fast. The wait time between getting my vitals taken and then waiting to see the doctor was at least an hour. The wait time for my last visit wasn't as long. This doesn't keep me from wanting to see my doctor though.

The office staff have been very polite and generally helpful.

Marthela is always amazing.
Jul 27, 2021
Dr Sungrulu is my favorite person for any question I have about my body and how it functions. My only complaint is that she "only" works in women's health. She'd be my doctor for absolutely everything if that were a real option. She's patient, listens to all of my concerns (even when they're just illogical fears) and is honest and direct with her opinions (which I appreciate A LOT.)
Jul 27, 2021
Very prompt
Jul 26, 2021
I love Dr. Sungurlu!

The only reason I had to wait so long was there was a medical emergency, essentially. Another patient was about to have a baby.

Lag time due to another patient in labor - to be expected.Pre-check-in online for appointments is fine, but not so quick.
