I have never met a more engaging, caring and compassionate doctor. He is very knowledgeable and has managed my thyroid issues for nearly 15 years. He and his staff make me feel welcome and well cared for and allow me to be an active participant in my health care decisions. I recommend him regularly to others as I have a high level of trust in his abilities.

Dr Sussman has been my go to doctor for more than 2 decades. There is no physician more knowledgeable and compassionate than Dr. Sussman. He truly cares and will go above and beyond to figure out your problem. He will also follow up with patients...he emailed me personally, suggesting a physical because he hadn't remembered seeing me in a year. How many docs do that? He is also an expert on thyroid disorders and has kept me regulated and healthy for years. Best doctor in Nashville...
