Great doctor and office!

When I called to make an appointment I was scheduled to see the doctor the next day- very convenient! When I got to the office it was busy, but the staff was very nice and helpful- they allowed me go to get coffee and called me (20 minutes later) to tell me they were ready for me- pretty cool! Dr. Sussman talked to me, asked about family history of my symptoms, and then examined me. He then spent a good amount of time talking to me about my problem, and different potential medications. He wanted to make sure that any questions I had were answered. He's a great doctor and he clearly cares about his patients! Overall, the office and his care makes it worth the wait!

terrible staff

my worst experience ever, dealing with any Doctor’s office. I tried rescheduling an appointment initially made by my primary care doctor. I could not get any word in, DR Sussman wife picked up the phone and her only concern was about my insurance. She did not care about my health. She was rude and very nasty, when she said something inaccurate about my insurance, she would not allow me to correct her. She assumed I had Medicare, which is “dog whistle” indication of her assuming my socio economic status. I informed her that I had private insurance. She then call my insurance company and later informed me that I had to pay a $2000 deductible before treatment. When I tried to correct her, she insisted that unless I paid the cash, I could not be seen. She refused to have me speak with the Dr. and hung up the phone on me. Stay away from this doctor because of his terrible decision in hiring such a terrible staff. He could not possible be a good doctor.

THE BEST DOCTOR AND OFFICE

I had been complaining for months, no doctor listened to me, One visit with Dr. Sussman he knew immediately what was wrong. His office helped me with my insurance, and scheduled me with another kind of specialist for my colon. when I had surgery with another specialist Dr. Sussman actually came to see me!!!
