Dr. Sullivan is by far the best physician @ the sleep clinic! So professional, friendly, smar & a real example of an excellent caring physician! She is extremely knowledgeable about sleep issues. You should be proud & grateful to have her... I am!

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Great doctor

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Sullivan was lovely - warm, friendly, listened and engaged in dialogue, knowledgeable about my condition though it was our first meeting, presented numerous options and trends related to my sleep apnea, current device as well as newly available options and extent to which they may or may not be realistically beneficial. The experience was extremely positive and encouraging.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Sullivan took time to review data from CPAP that was far beyond the call of duty.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

She is absolutely amazing!

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Sullivan is an incredible physician. Skilled, compassionate, and charismatic.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Sometimes Dr. Sullivan was hard to follow because she is more familiar with the topic than I am and I did not always fully understand some of her references. However, she is very engaged and thoughtful, she just moves a little too quickly sometimes with explanations.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Sullivan is excellent!!! (Rotating fellows working with her not so much however.)

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Sullivan is caring, very knowledgeable about sleep medicine, and I like how she explains things fully to you.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

fantastic

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr S. Sullivan is very knowlegable and up to date in her area of expertize. A good teacher to the medical fellow without infringing on patient's time. All is all a very good experience with Dr. Shannon and her medical staff.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

1) Joseph Cheung (Stanford Fellow) initially triaged my visit, asking pertinent questions, excellent listener and demonstrated thorough and detailed summary. 2) Shannon Sullivan is extremely personable while remaining professional. She clearly communicates well and is very knowledgeable in her field of expertise. She anticipated my needs exactly and provided solutions for all my concerns. The two of them work well together and make a good team. I left the office visit as satisfied as I could be. NOTE: This clinic does not assign a particular physician or resident, or fellow to you (in my experience). Each appointment I've had a different doctor/assistant every visit, but I found these two exemplary.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Dr. Sullivan is outstanding - Expert in her field, friendly, caring - simply the best.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. Sullivan spent ample time with me, explored my issues & explained things thoroughly.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

Dr. S. Sullivan is OUTSTANDING.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

I think Dr. Sullivan is excellent. I really like how she explains things to you and does not simplify it too much like (some) other doctors to - she gives good information and explanations.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

I like that we're working together. My info and experience counts in her decisions. I'm still working out some problems, but I am, finally, getting better sleep, and with the help I've gotten from your clinic I only expect it to keep improving. Thank you.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Couldn't speak clear English. Seemed to not know what he's doing.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Dr. Sullivan is the epitome of an excellent, professional, knowledgeable & personable MD. One in a million! All doctors should learn from her!

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Kawai is an excellent and caring doctor. Dr. Kawai and Dr. Sullivan gave me a clear understanding of my sleep apnea and CPAP machine treatment.

SHC Patient, May 2014

She listened to my concerns; explained things well, and made an instrument adjustment that has helped my sleep a lot.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Cas is on maternity leave - Dr. Sullivan was very nice - We check in with clinic every 6 mons.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Dr. Sullivan was outstanding, as was Dr. Mara Cvejic. All information presented with with all alternatives possible.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Talked SO fast - so hard to understand or retain - we were so frustrated when leaving.
