I started suffering from debilitating back pain a few months ago. I decided to see Dr. Suman after reading all the great reviews. So glad I listened to my instinct. Dr. Suman was able to diagnose the source of my pain and treat me accordingly. He made sure to explain what was wrong and why and what the treatment options were, etc. I had to have a radiofrequency ablation, and he talked and got me through it, even though I was a mess due to fear of pain. Highly recommend and the staff is terrific!

I have a problem with my spine.I have been to many Docter’s. It was my first time to see him. He told me what exactly the problems I have without knowing or seeing my MRI.He does really great job, and knows exactly what to do to improve my problem. I really recommend him to friends.

Very thoughtful, knowledgeable and kind doctor. He diagnosed my problem within seconds and treated my back pain/problem, that has been bothering me for years. He gave me treatment options and explained very clearly the difference between the effectiveness of each, relative costs and estimated time to heal. He took his time to explain and made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him for back problem patients.
