What People Are Saying About Us…

Don’t just take it from us, let our patients do the talking!

I recently visited Sunnyside for problems with my sinuses, the treatment I received there was second to none. Highly recommended peaceful, welcoming clinic with friendly staff.

The clinic is a caring environment from the time you step through the door until you leave and people come back for treatment even after years of not been seen.
