      Caring and knowledgeable. Dr. Sulaiman took the time to listen to my concerns and observation, then conduct a thorough exam and make recommendations to me. He was informative and educational at all times, and extremely respectful and nice towards me and my family. At the same time, he was very straight forward about managing expectations and how the future may unfold. Post op he has been supportive and approachable about any concerns. Highly recommend for extruded disks. Pain almost gone now.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
