Great doctor. Very friendly. Helped me treat my fungus and get rid of it. Went above and beyond helping me with my ingrown toenail. Even numbed my toe for me so I didn't have to be in pain. Not a fan of foot docs but I don't mind this place one bit.

Dr. Sum is very caring about her patients, especially their feet. She is an excellent doctor!!! After surgery she took off the bandage in one week and it was healed. Praise God and thank you Dr Sum.

Amazing service. Dr. Sum removed my very infected ingrown toenail in both big toes. The numbing shots are not my favorite but after that I felt absolutely no pain. She talks you through what she's doing and answers all the questions you have. This is my second time coming here and I'd highly recommend it.
