GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. Dr. Sutej is my mom's rheumatologist and it has been a terrible experience from the beginning. His staff is completely unorganized and uninformed. My parents live an hour away and wanted to ensure they saw Dr. Sutej for their visits. On my mom's second visit EVER, she was shown to a PA to tell her results of her lupus test. She was also given some lab results that are specifically FOR MEN. She calls the office and leaves messages and often doesn't receive responses.

I received an injection of Prolia for Osteoporosis and experienced an allergic reaction. After about two weeks I finally was able to get an appointment. Dr. Sutez told me he had never seen someone have an allergic reaction and told me to see my Dermatologist. I did my own research and discovered my reaction was listed as the most common. I told them I would not be coming back but six months later they called to schedule another shot, they made NO record in my chart of my allergic reaction.

First, even before I was a patient, the staff worked with me to get my records over and get an appointment fairly quickly. They even called when they had a cancellation. Dr. Sutej has one of the best bedside manner I have ever experienced. I appreciated him not rushing to judgement, and even though he was in and out of the room, he would come back in, continuing right where we had left off. I have faith that he will figure out my issue!

It's been a few years since I've seen Dr. Sutej. However, I feel a need to let people know about my experience. Arrogance and ego are placed before your health issue. It's more important for Dr. Sutej to be "right" about a diagnosis, than to continue to find the cause of a patients illness. No solid responses to patients physical complaints, rather than continued testing for a diagnosis. Haughty attitude. Terrible experience.

This man is a great doctor with the worst secretary staff possible. I had to get a new doctor because they are incapable of returning phone calls. I would not tell anyone to ever see this doctor because of his inability to hire good staff or keep care or his own business. I have been calling and leaving voicemails for over 2 months with no response. WORST DOCTOR EVER.
San Antonio, TX |
Dr Sutej and his staff are an arrogant joke. They are slow to respond and quick to make demands of patients. It begins when he asks for lengthy information and all medical records before he will even see you. Then you wait weeks...WEEKS while he determines if you are a good fit. If you're lucky enough to receive a call back, more forms and more waiting are your reward, while suffer in pain. And woe to you if so thing happens in your life and you cancel an appointment. You'll be blackballed.

I love Dr. Sutej' bedside manner. He makes you feel like your case is important.
