in Newark, DE |
Dr. Sugarman has excellent people skills. He is a good listener and good communicator. I clearly understood my medical conditions after he answered all of my questions. He showed me my brain scans and explained. I would highly recommend him. I saw him after two separate accidents. I am doing well...more
