Hammond, LA |
in 2013 I suffered from Sciatica so bad hat I was unable to walk or work. Dr Sulaiman was amazing! In one outpatient procedure I was totally healed and am 100% today!
in Metairie, LA |
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.
