A Bully

Didn't touch my skin unless he had on gloves, even if the skin was on my arm or neck. No eye contact and spoke sharply. If I didn't like his idea he would try to bully me into liking it rather than explaining why he thought it was a good idea. Never diagnosed me or gave me his thoughts in any of the several appointments I had with him. Never told me the results of the many tests he required. Spoke into a recorder most of the appointment and shushed me if I interrupted to ask a question. An all-around bad experience.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

Dr Susko is an exceptional physician

Dr. Susko first of all is extremely knowledgeable, is patient, and is interested in his patients. He is meticulous about analyzing rheumatological and related conditions, and his manner is exactly what you would hope for in a first class, or should I say world class physician. You never get the feeling that he is too busy to hear what you have to say.

Caring and Competent

For more than two years I have been Dr. Susko's patient for the treatment of lupus. I have always found him to be generous with his time and a careful listener. His staff is friendly and professional. I feel very fortunate to have such competent and compassionate care.

John O.

An extremely sharp & humane doctor.His diagnosis in unparalled.Spent 90-minutes examining my 81-year oldmom, and said " you have a blood-clot in your right leg & go for ultrasound nextdoor right now ".I suggested doing ultrasound in Encino (where mom lives)at Tarzana Hospital, but Dr. Susko disagreed & said you do theultrasound IMMEDIATELY at next door facility.Sure enough, ultrasound confirmed Dr. Susko's diagnosis, & took mom toSt Jonh's Emergency Room.Now mom is assigned to Dr. Casciato(an excellent Hematalogist & Oncologist).I cannot say enough praise for Dr. Susko.He is highly clear-minded & puts thepatient at ease so that he/she trusts him100%
