I went to see dr. Sullivan for a problem with my lower leg. He never really examined. my leg. The only thing he did was type on the computer. I left his office with no answers. I would'nt recommend this dr. I ended up going to Syracuse to get the answer.

My encounter with him made it easy to develop trust as he was so informative, open to and encouraged questions, and...more
