This man really listens, cares and treats a patient with respect and dignity. His entire staff are very helpful, polite and knowledgeable. They pay attention to detail.

DR. SUGAR PERFORMED MY DOUBLE KNEE REPLACEMENTS. BEST DECISION OF EVER MADE. HE DID AN AMAZING JOB. JUST DID ORTHOSCOPIC SURGERY ON THE WIFE AND WORKED ON A CO- WORKER HE IS A MASTER OF HIS PROFESSION.
in Sarasota, FL |
Highest quality of care possible provided by the Doctor and his team of professionals! I sustained an injury earlier this year and was re-injured during the healing process. The level of care and quality provided is without a doubt the best I have ever experienced. The Dr is excellent and he has surrounded himself with a team that I can only describe as ultimate professionals. They truly have my confidence. One person of note is Candice who handles scheduling. She does a tough job with a smile!

Three years ago, Dr. Sugar replaced both my knees at the same time. The results have been amazing. He gave me my life back. Today I live with no knee pain. Dr. Sugar is wonderful!

My entire family has been to see Dr. Sugar through the years. He has been able to diagnosis some very odd orthopedic injuries when other physicians were unable to do so. He never makes you feel like you are rushed. He and his staff are always willing to work with you in the event you need to be seen. They will fit you in at all times to be accommodating. The entire staff (reception, checkin, checkout, radiology, nurses) are alway so pleasant and helpful!

I went to Dr Sugar for my hand with was giving me trouble after cutting it extremely bad. Dr Sugar is an incredible Dr and has on of the best attitudes and excitement Ive ever seen form a Dr. You can tell he truly loves what he does. He took great care of me and I only had to wait like 10 minutes to see him. I think my favorite part of the whole experience was the staff in general. They were all very helpful and happy to be there. Everyone in the waiting room was well taken care off.
in Venice, FL |
I went to see Dr Sugar for knee pain. I was nervous about the pain ending my running season. Dr Sugar performed a thorough exam, followed up with x-ray and MRI. My options were discussed and a plan developed. I would, and have strongly recommended Dr Sugar to my family, friends and neighbors.
in Sarasota, FL |
Dr Sugar performed successful shoulder surgery on me. His staff was excellent. Of particular note concerning Dr Sugar was during the pre-operation office visit, where he very thoroughly and patiently explained the shoulder problem, what would specifically happen during surgery, and the process by which I could make a full recovery. The surgery resulted in a complete return to pain free function in the shoulder. I highly recommend Dr Sugar.
