Review for Dr. Donaldson

Dr Suneja is an extremely kind and fantastic orthopedic surgeon. He is very skilled. Highly recommend.

Review for Dr. Suneja

She listens and answers questions for knowledge and understanding. Doc explains the procedure or examination prior to and during her attending to me. She is the best since I've been living in the US. My visits were at Harlem Hospital in Manhattan.
