Patient Comments (1)
in Tempe, AZ |
Dr. Suiter is an outstanding Opthalmologist. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is kind, has a great sense of humor, establishes a rapport with each patient, and spends sufficient time with each patient. I saw him a number of years ago for a vitreous detachment. He also performed cataract surgery for me in 2014 and recently YAG laser. He is excellent!!
