Dr Sungurlu is very patient, she listened to my questions and concerns. She is very knowledgeable and caring.
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.)

Lag time due to another patient in labor - to be expected.Pre-check-in online for appointments is fine, but not so quick.
Jul 4, 2021
The only reason I had to wait so long was there was a medical emergency, essentially. Another patient was about to have a baby.
Jul 3, 2021

Dr. Sungurlu genuinely cares about the health and well being of her patients. She is straightforward and honest but compassionate and thoughtful. She's like a football coach on game day for my Vagina.

Apr 8, 2021
Dr Sungurlu was attentive, kind and empathetic. she answered all of my questions and provided the best possible care. my expectations of an OB are very high due to past experiences with other doctors so I am always wary when choosing a new one, especially an OB. Dr Sungurlu met allof my expectations and then some.
Apr 8, 2021
I was told ahead of time that there could be a wait as the Doctor was scheduled for a surgery next door. Fortunately for me there was no additional wait and I was seen right on time and my appointment was handled with care and efficiently.
Apr 8, 2021
I was grateful that the staff and doctor were able to squeeze me in, as a new patient with very little wait.

I already recommended Dr. Sanguru to one friend, and she was pleased with the office even tho she couldn't see the doctor (due to maternity leave).
Apr 1, 2021
so
Apr 1, 2021
The last appointment, I waited a reeeeally long time (almost an hour), so I was nervous that it would take long again. Fortunately the wait was shorter & my interaction with Dr. Sanguru more than made up for the time.I felt she really understood me & took care of my needs.

I really appreciated the staff's professionalism and courtesy when I had to call for STI screening. I was not happy about calling, but they got me taken care of with no fuss. That seriously reduced my stress level and made me fee better about accessing the care I knew I needed.
Mar 22, 2021
Dr. Sungurlu is by far the best doctor I've ever been to see, OB/GYN or otherwise. She is friendly, professional, makes me feel at ease in what can easily be a super uncomfortable position (literally and figuratively), listens carefully, provides helpful and well-reasoned advice, and is down to earth. She is also proactive about testing and healthcare in general, which I really appreciate given my family's history with various cancers. I also appreciate her emphasis on mental health as well as physical health. That makes a huge difference. I always recommend Dr.Sungurlu to anyone who is looking for a doctor. I've even recommended her to my other doctors; no joke. Thanks, Dr. Sungurlu!
Mar 22, 2021
The waiting room is nice, staff let me know what to expect, and everything moved quickly.

Mar 7, 2021
I had a very good experience visiting the office for the first time. the medical staff was very thorough and knowledgeable, and their bedside manner was fantastic. I didn't feel that I was rushed at all. the reception staff was very friendly and helpful also.
Mar 7, 2021
It was hard to get an appointment with my chosen doctor, but I assume it's because she is very good therefore very busy.
Mar 2, 2021
everyone friendly
Mar 2, 2021
Dr. Sungurlu is the best. She listened to my concerns and made me feel good about where i am in my journey. She's so friendly and definitely made me feel welcome. i had been with the same NP for at least 16 years prior to my appt with Dr. Sungurlu and i was very happy to have Dr. Sungurlu as my new ObGyn
Mar 2, 2021
I felt super at ease

Dr. Sungurlu is quick on her toes, really smart, capable, competent and compassionate. I also appreciate that she is a DO and open-minded about integrating holistic approaches to health care and wellness like acupuncture and nutrition. Furthermore, I appreciate that she took me on as a new patient last summer during COVID when I called to get an appt that she seemed to fit in instead of her own lunch break. Otherwise, I would've had to wait a month and my body couldn't wait due to the emergency at that time. Her appt staffer Tammy (?) was really listening to my medical situation and recognized the urgency, so she put me on hold while she consulted Dr Sungurlu and got me an appt within days. I was so grateful for that. I was simultaneously trying another GYN elsewhere whose appt staffer was kind of rude and couldn't have cared less about the urgency. Their new patient process was less user-friendly, too, with a million forms to print at home, complete, scan and fax back. Plus their appt avails were more than a month away.
