Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr Sussman was very clear about my care. I can recommend him to everyone I know that needs his services
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr.Sussman did a great job
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr Sussman is an especially concerned and compassionate physician--makes a definite connection the the patient.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Apt was made for over 2 months but my chart wasn't available or reviewed by the physician. Dr seemed more concerned about staring out the window and giving his generalized talk he probably gives 20 plus times a day than anything else. Didn't seem to want to listen about my complaint of breathing trouble through my sinus cavity. Basically felt rushed, like a number, and was told I would be hearing from the office once my chart was reviewed. Very unprofessional in my opinion as I took personal time off to drive out of the way for the apt. At least could have been prepared. Very disappointed in appointment
Guthrie Patient: March 2018
Very thoughtful, understanding and explained everything thoroughly.
Guthrie Patient: March 2018
