Dr. Kristina Suntay

To all my wonderful patients,

It is with a heavy heart that I announce I will be taking a step back from practicing Obstetrics and Gynecology on 2/29/24 to spend more time with my family. It has been an amazing 8 years with Desert Sage and I have been blessed with the best patients and the best colleagues. It has been an absolute honor and privilege getting to know each and every one of you. Thank you for inviting me into your lives and your families. Thank you for trusting me, for growing with me and for teaching me along the way. I will forever treasure the joy and the tears we have shared together.

I am fortunate to be able to recommend Dr. Valerie Scholten and Dr. Lauren Eads to continue your care with Desert Sage. They are both incredible physicians and they look forward to getting to know you to make this transition as easy as possible.

Instead of saying goodbye, I will say, “until next time”, in the hope that our paths will cross again in the future.

Wishing you health, happiness and love,

Kristina Suntay, MD
