Cortlandt Manor, NY |
Dr. Soohoo is one of the top specialists in his field. I was most impressed after my surgery to remove nasal polyps. Dr. Soohoo was able to preserve the delicate nerves that allow us to smell and to this day, over ten years later, I am able to enjoy a full recovery!

Knows his stuff when I had prior visit. But he really needs to buy a watch. Having people wait time after time is disrespectful.
