Due to a need of having my gallbladder removed I did not meet Doctor Suh in Until about 20 minutes before my surgery. He was very comforting and took his time to explain to me who he was what his qualifications were and assured me I was in good hands. He and the staff made me feel like the surgery had been planned for a month. I can only highly recommends Dr Suh and his staff should you need his expertise. My follow up with Dr. Suh at his office was buth informative and comforting!
