What People Say About Dr. Charles Susong, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Perhaps cosmetic (and out of pocket) procedures receive better attention, but I can't recommend Dr Susong for skin cancer or atypical moles. He is brusque, impatient with questions, and I had complications with two different procedures. Despite calls to the office, I had to make an appointment to get biopsy results. I get the impression that they are too busy to be responsive or to deliver any kind of individual attention.

Patient care and follow up is extremely poor. During surgery I asked how many sutures I had and I was told "enough", as though it was none of my business. I asked if they had any suggestions regarding my CPAP machine since the straps would lay close to where the incision was made. They dismissed my concerns. A week after surgery my sutures came undone and I had to have an additional culture done and was left with a hole in my face. They called back and told me that I "may" have an infection and

Signs in the exam rooms state you will be charged $50-$100 for a no show. We have been here for an hour and 37 minutes waiting for our 9:30 am appointment with a nurse. How much di they pay patients when they are no show?

Dr. Susong's partner, Dr. Covi, recommended a procedure (Levulan BLU-U blue light phototherapy), without 1st explaining the procedure is NOT covered by insurance (I only found this out much later). I had a severe allergic reaction to the treatment after 4&1/2 minutes out of a scheduled 15. I asked over & over for lidocaine. They finally gave me after abt a 1/2 hr. I disputed the bill for $588 multiple times. They threatened me with a lawsuit for failure to pay. NOT RECOMMENDED.
