Dr. Susini is a wonderful doctor, very educated and with a good sense of humor. He treated my father with respect and explained the next steps after knee surgery thoroughly. My father is very satisfied and is looking foward to continue his care with Dr. Susini. All hospital staff were also very knowledgeable and helpful.

Dr. Susini performed surgery on my fractured radius bone. The surgery was a success. Dr. Susini has the best bedside manners of any physician/surgeon that I've experienced in my 75-year life.

Dr Susini is good guy. Smart professional & a regular Joe to boot. He performed a right ankle fusion on me. Titanium plate & 11 screws He answered all my questions and I thank the Lord he provided me with highly skilled medical Doctor. My ankle is coming along fine at 4 months post-op. Wear boot 1/2 the day. But working job full time. And no more pain at every step before operation. Sincerely Steve Vos

Dr. Susini has been my ortho guy for over 21 years, it all started when he replaced my hip in 97 and since he did both shoulders, scoped both knees and just did a total knee replacement for me. He is an outstanding surgeon and explains every thing to you in a way you can understand

This is the most unprofessional doctor. Never before have I been treated so rudely. Susini never spent more then five minutes with me and never clearly answer my questions. He dismissed my injury acting as though it was fake. He treated me unfairly and belittled my injury making me feel small. Every time I would leave an appointment I felt angry, frustrated and lost. He is unclear with his diagnosis and did not work with me to figure out why I was having pain. Avoid at all costs. Waste of time.

I felt very much at ease with Dr. Susini. His approach, explanations and care for the patient were comforting and reassuring. His approach while efficient and thorough was professional and friendly. I had no misgivings or qualms about the impending surgery and care. His after-surgery approach was caring and informative. I would not hesitate to return to Dr. Susini or refer him to friends and family.

Dr.Susini made this process very easy. He listened to what I told him and either made it right or explained in English, not Dr ease, why. Thank you Dr Susini!.

I've been to Dr. Susini for over 10 years. I like the way he listens to patients. Until last week, I didn't consider surgery. A week out I can say the best decision I've made in decades is to have knee replacement. The hospital was great. Dr Susini also discussed my living situation and now I'm moving close to my instead of trying to run my farm by myself. I'm feeling better than I have in years and am excited about getting the other knee done.

Dr. Susini has performed rotator cuff surgery on both of my shoulders in the past 18 months. I am extremely satisfied and happy with the results. I have full range of motion and no pain in either shoulder. The results have been truly outstanding. In addition, the entire pre-op, surgical, anesthesia and post-op staff at Canyon Vista Regional Medical Center were courteous, helpful and extremely competent. I highly recommend Dr. Susini and CVMC for any orthopedic surgery you may need.
