J. Sur, M.D.

Having grown up with a father who has suffered with cardiac disease since a young age, I have always had a personal perspective on the impact it has on one's life and the life of those they love. I try to treat every patient I meet as a member of my own family. Using the life lessons I have received in conjunction with the training I have experienced, I strive every day to provide quality medical care and be the best physician I can be. My sincere hope is that every patient I have the honor of caring for, will not see me just as his or her doctor, but also as a trusted friend...
