General surgery, personalized care offered at Sutter Lakeside Medical Practice

LAKEPORT, Calif. – Sutter Lakeside Medical Practice, formerly the Family Medicine Clinic, opened its doors in December and expanded its service offerings to include general surgery in January.

Dr. John A. Sundin, a board-certified general surgeon, is available to see patients immediately.

Dr. Sundin is a graduate of the University of Virginia and the Medical College of Virginia. He performed his residency at Yale, then worked in Rwanda, Haiti and Sri Lanka as a volunteer with Doctors Without Borders and the American Red Cross.

People Magazine noted him as a Hero of the Year in 1994 for his work during the height of the African genocide; Doctors Without Borders won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1999 for their work in Rwanda.

He has more than 25 years of private practice experience, having previously practiced in Key West, Florida and Cortez, Colorado.

“General surgeons are masters of surgery, skilled in abdominal, hernia, laparoscopic, endoscopic and skin surgeries,” says Sundin. “My philosophy of care is to treat the whole person, both surgical problems and adaptation to a healthier lifestyle. The essence of a surgeon is determining when a patient needs surgery versus when he or she doesn’t. Sometimes that means adjusting diet and lifestyle for a healthier digestive tract. I evaluate and diagnose abdominal problems – and solutions.”

Dr. Sundin, whose wife is an RN in San Francisco, considers himself a dual resident of both the big city and the quiet country. “Lake County is an enchanted community nestled amongst the mountains of a prehistoric volcano.”

And while he enjoys sport fishing, his hobbies are few and far between. “I don’t have hobbies,” he jokes. “I’m too busy being a surgeon.”

Sutter Lakeside Medical Practice is located at 987 Parallel Drive, Suite C in Lakeport. The practice includes primary care, podiatric (foot) care, internal medicine, tele psychiatry and routine medical office procedures.

The practice is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To inquire about booking an appointment with Dr. Sundin, please call 707-262-5088.
