Specialties

Dr. Sang H Suh has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Dr. Suh has been amazing at helping me find the right medications to manage my ADHD and insomnia. He is very sympathetic to how difficult the controlled substance system can be and goes out of his way to make sure I understand why he is making the treatment decisions he does.

Good. Finally someone who listened.

I went to my general Dr complaining of anxiety. Was put on antidepressants. When I saw DrSuh he cancelled all that and told me I wasn't depressed and needed stuff to calm me down-duh! Happy with the new prescriptions that are "take as needed". Less pills to pop. Better RESULTS! Happy and carefree again. Thanks!

Avoid his recommendations on medications there are better ways of help.

Was forced to see him by my mom and all he did was raise the dose of my medications which I was having bad side effects with but that was not an issue to him. His eagerness to raise my dose made him seem more like a drug dealer than a medical professional. I would not recommend anyone to see him.

Not a holistic approach

I was in with my child and felt as if my opinion did not matter. If you are looking for a Doctor who will treat you as a partner in the treatment process, Dr. Suh would not be a good match. He had very strong opinions on causes of stress and emotional/mental problems and discounted anything that didn't fit his view. He asked about family history stating that there was always a genetic connection/cause. I mentioned that my sister had problems with depression during menopause. He laughed saying that it was always PMS, menopause or the weather. Aside from being closed minded, it was actually an inappropriate response to any patient's comment. Who wants a psychiatrist that laughs at a serious comment? My other concern is that fact that after a 45 minute meeting, in which he implied he wanted to start medications slowly, he promptly prescribed two different medication, one of which is not a first-line low dose antidepressant. The other was a mood stabilizer that takes one to two weeks to get into the body's system. It seem overly aggressive, unnecessary and potentially unsafe to prescribe two medications at the same time when one might do as well and the patient is not in crisis. Again, he doesn't seem open to a dialog on treatment or a holistic approach to dealing with emotional/mental issues.
