I received ankle surgery from Dr. Park in May of 2021 & a year later I am basically back to full health. I feel lucky to be running and on my feet again and I wouldn't have been able to do it without Dr. Park.

Review for Dr. Southall

Dr. Duska is an amazing Doctor. I have her for Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer which she has been treating for the past year. Her bedside manner is warm and we often have some good laughs during my visits. I have great confidence in Dr. Linda Suska and recommend her without reservation.
