Review of Dr. Sumida

- |

Mother has had two occurrences of bowel obstruction and has been under the care of Dr Sumida each time. He is caring, through and doesn't rush into surgery unless it is absolutely necessary. He explains everything simply and is very personable. I'm so happy that he was on call the first time so that he became Mother's doctor.

Has no value for patient's time! Always a 2 hour wait.

Review of Dr. Sumida


Absolutely the worst Dr. I have ever encountered. He yelled at me for asking questions, about my back and stomach and demanded I leave his office. He didn't want me asking ANY questions. Was easily irritated. Didn't seem to care about me as a person. By far the worst doctor I have ever been to.

Review of Dr. Sumida

-Athens |

Very disappointed with this doctor. He is in too much of a hurry and does not explain what he is going to do. Does not explain after surgery either. Can't ask questions. Will not use again. I want questions answered. Come back in three years! I don't think so!

This doctor does not explain what he is doing. Gets aggravated if you ask him questions! Does not take time to talk with patient. He is not a people person at all.

This dr. May be good surgeon but does not care for his patients. Do surgery then he is done! Does not explain anything. Go somewhere else!
