in Galliano, LA |
Dr. Suazo is very thorough and professional in his duties as a physician. He will demand excellence in his treatment to get to the cause of illness and render professional treatment. He has a certain knack for explaining to me the method of treatment and reason being in simple terms. I wish there were more Dr. Suazo's! In addition, his staff is very kind and professional!

Dr. Sauzo is the best doctor I have ever been to. He makes sure you understand everything before he leaves the room. If he doesn't have all of your labs at the time of your appointment he will reschedule unless it is important that you see him.
Houma, LA |
While in the hospital at Dr. Suazo's request, he had a dismissive/insulting demeanor toward the other doctors attending to my husband. He would make negative comments about decisions they made in my husbands care. After 3 days, the 2 other physicians cleared my husband to be discharged and saw no reason to keep him. When we asked for Dr. Suazo's reason for wanting to keep him longer, he became defensive that we were asking questions and walked out of the room without finishing out conversation.
