Nobody wants to have pain or need surgery, but if you do I would recommend you see Dr. Sumida. I've had friends go to big groups, and they never see the Dr. After my surgery Dr. Sumida saw me for every visit not his assistant. It made a huge difference for me that the one who actually fixed my shoulder was the one who evaluated my recovery each and every time. I didn't feel like a number. The office staff knows me, and I appreciate that when I call. I'm 100% and feel great! Thank you Dr. Sumida

I've never left a review for a doctor before but felt it was necessary after Dr. Sumida saved my life. Several yrs ago I tripped over a hose in my yard and suffered a terrible ankle fracture. The ER gave me the orthopedic surgeon on call who operated on me. Since then my ankle has caused me significant pain, and the pins that were placed looked they were going to poke out of my skin. A friend told me to see Dr. Sumida, and he was able to fix everything. I am pain free and forever grateful.

Dr Sumida has now taken care of my mother, my wife, myself and my son. Every time we visit the office we are greeted by friendly staff, have a very short wait time, and feel the doctor takes the time to listen to us. We have had three operations between us, and all with terrific outcomes. I appreciate knowing we have a skilled and dependable orthopedic surgeon in town that is knowledgable in all areas of orthopedics so despite our individual issues, he knows how to care of us.

Dr. Sumida is a great surgeon. He will not rush into surgery. He has treated my whole family---from broken ankle, knee replacements, torn rotator cuffs. He is a very professional & caring man. He is always continuing to try to learn & keep up with all the new techniques. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Sumida agreed to take my case after I had been injured, rather than helped, by another "doctor". Dr. Sumida reviewed the damage and explained my options for repair and the possible success or failure of the procedure. He planned and then made the surgical corrections to allow me to walk normally. Everything has gone above and beyond my expectations. Follow-up visits have been as important as before. I have not had to wait long for service and the staff is always caring and helpful.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sumida's for almost 20 years. He has taken care of my shoulder, knees, and my ankle, and I have had several surgeries. Each and every time he gives me his full attention and his genuine concern. He takes the time to explain my condition and the procedure he recommends, and he's always conservative in his approach which I very much appreciate. My parents, spouse, and children are also pts. We wouldn't see anyone else. We are so grateful for the exceptional care.

Having multiple athletes in the family we have been in Dr Sumida's office many times. Each and every visit we have been treated with nothing less than the utmost respect and professionalism. From the front desk, to x-ray, and then into the room with the nurse I find them to be incredibly efficient and caring. Dr Sumida is very thorough and always takes the time to answer all of our questions. He treats us like family.

I walked in about 8:30 stood at the counter and began filling out the paperwork, when Doug asked if I was there for my left foot. Doug took me to X ray and was finished in less than 10 min. After x rays I was told the exam room was available. I was in the exam room less than 5 minutes when Dr Sumida came in to review x rays and examine my foot. After the exam I was shown exactly what the problem was and given a plan which include physical therapy. The physical therapist called before lunch .

I appreciate this doctor and his team! I've been treated by him on two separate occasions and was impressed with his plan of care each time. He's very thorough; he preferred to treat conservatively and saved me much time, unnecessary discomfort and of course, money. He took time to explain my situation and asked if I had questions. I highly recommend him and his team for any osteo-related issue.
