Dr. Sullenberger defines excellence, knowledge, leadership and professionalism. I have dealt with heartache in dealing with aging, sick parents. He has compassion, an ability to listen and make you feel at ease. His response time to my questions is unsurpassed and his follow through. He is by far the best Physician I have worked with and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing cardiac care.

Dr. Sullenberger’s exemplary care and treatment saved my life. I will forever be grateful to him for quickly diagnosing my hypertensive heart disease and taking immediate action to normalize my high blood pressure and lower my cholesterol. With his encouragement, I participated in a 3-year Duke University study on heart disease in women to help increase awareness about cardiovascular risk factors and IHD in women.

I have been patient to Dr. Lance sullenberger since 2014 . I had stent placed with all wrong diogose, wrong medications and had got my iota injured during process with hell shoulder blade/chest pains and my previous cardiologist couldn’t determine the reasons of pains. I changed cardiologist and chose Dr. Lance and he had my latest mri test and determined the reason of my pains after stent, changed medications and he saved my life otherwise I was gone. God bless him and give him More wisdom.

Went to the Doctor over high heart rates after I had diabetes of 9.4, kidney failure and heart failure. Went to Albany Medical Hospital with chest pain. Was told it was Sarcoidosis related but gave no reason for this. Dr Sullenberger agreed to this diagnosis and refused to give my wife how he came up with this diagnosis.2 weeks later I went to another hospital with chest pain. Was found to have an almost complete blockage that the heart doctor said I could have died.
