      Dr. Sud is a good pulmonologist; however, the office staff doesn't communicate with other specialists or present request to Dr.Sud. I have waited since October for Dr. SUD to reply to a request from orthopedic surgeon for consent for surgery. When I brought this to doctor's attention at last appointment the response was I didn't see a request. Three request were sent with no response.

      My father was referred to Dr Sud as a new patient for an abnormal CT scan, she worked him in immediately and he was scheduled for a biopsy within a few days. Dr Sud was very kind, she explained everything where it was easily understood, and my Father felt at ease from the moment he met her. My family is grateful for the care and compassion that Dr Sud expressed during my fathers fight with lung cancer

      By far the best lung doctor I've seen. I've seen others in Chattanooga. She spent more time and explained things. Found a cancer and got it taken care of fast.

      There are angels in the world and Dr. sud is one. She is very kind and caring and smart. She takes excellent care of me. She spends time and listens. She explains things. She will call you back if you call her. She always finds a place in her schedule to see me even at short notice. I can call and she will work me in the same day if I am sick. Can't ask for more.
