My experience was better than I could ever have imagined! I can breathe so much easier, and my allergies are finally under control! Even recovery was easy! Thank you so much, Dr. Suchanova! -more like Suchabadass!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! It was discovered after visiting with Dr. Suchanova that i had a badly deviated septum(left side). Upon meeting her for the first time she made me feel comfortable, she's very kind, caring, knowledgeable and has a bright personality- she's happy to do what she does! After having surgery, i can breathe, sleep deeply/dream again, and live life again. Her surgical technique leaves you w/ less pain recovering. If you have sinus problems this is YOUR doctor. Look no further.

Brilliant Doctor who really cares and knows what she is doing! Her staff is friendly and helpful, and goes beyond the extra mile.
Houston, TX |
Exceptional, Listener and caring Professional Doctor !!!! I cant thank her enough for giving us our quality of life back----Priceless!!!. My husband and I had surgeries one week apart. I was diagnosed with infected Nasal polyp in Maxillary sinus and inflamed sinus cavities. My husband was diagnosed with broken nose ( deviated septum surgery) and infected sinuses. Dr. Suchanova used advanced technologies to aid in our diagnoses, surgeries and treatment. She is an Awesome and Caring Doctor.
Houston, TX |
I would highly recommend Dr. Suchanova. She is not only an exceptional surgeon but caring and positive! She is just what I needed. Her enthusiasm for making people feel better is refreshing. I have struggled with sinus and allergies for years. Dr. Suchanova corrected my deviated septum and I had the balloon sinuplasty. The surgery went great! I consider myself to have a low pain tolerance and I didn't have to take any pain medicine after the surgery.
Secaucus, NJ |
I completely agree with all below comments/reviews! Best Dr. I've probably ever seen. She is great at what she does and takes great pride in it. My sinus surgery and deviated septum correction went perfect. Recovery - very painless, I was back to work after resting for 3 days (Friday - Sunday). I am 2 weeks post surgery & feel so much better, I anticipate being 100% within another week or 2. Surgery well worth it & Dr. Suchanova performing it - Priceless! I feel blessed to have found her.
in Houston, TX |
Without a doubt best doc EVER!!! When she's with you she takes her time to explain and answer your questions and concerns. She's outgoing and genuine. She cares about her patients and clearly her profession. Too bad she's just ENT.... I'd go to her for everything!!!!
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Suchanova is an excellent doctor. She did my sinus surgery and it helped SO much!! My daughter also went to her and loved her. She has high anxiety and Dr. Suchanova is so patient and explained everything to her making her feel totally at ease!! She had a deviated septum that was horrible and had her adenoids out. Piece of cake!! We would both highly recommend her to family and friends!!! ????????

Dr. Suchanova is the only ENT specialist in Houston that does the procedure that she does. Other people that have had sinus surgery were in pain for about a week but the procedure that Suchanova does, 1 day of pain. She is meticulous, takes pride in what she does, and aims for nothing less than perfection. My surgery went great. The follow up appointment, the straws (not visible) come out and it is a new world from there. I cannot express in words how great you will feel after that appointment.

Dr Suchanova is nothing short of excellent. She is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and an expert of her field. She has some of the best bedside manner I have seen in a Dr. I had horrible sinus issues, very crooked septum and turns out a lot of environmental allergies. Had surgery about 2 weeks ago - truly life changing (and that is saying a lot since I am still recovering)...I had no idea how poorly I was breathing prior to surgery. Pain with surgery was very minimal - just hard on energy.

I Have always received excellent care. Dr. Suchanova and her staff are wonderful in providing excellent quality care as well as through explanation and knowledge of procedures. It's like visiting with friends ;)
in Bridge City, TX |
Dr. Suchanova came highly recommended. From my first visit, my care was beyond expectations. Her sinus surgery techniques are innovative and my experience was almost completely pain-free. After seeing several ENTs before her, I would say that she is head and shoulders above them. I would not hesitate for a moment to refer my family and friends to Dr. Suchanova.
in Houston, TX |
I met first time Dr. Suchanova in May 2016. I selected her due multiple positive referenced I found online. At that time I had headaches due a sinusitis and old nose issues. At first visit I realized I met an extremely knowledgeable doctor. She was able to find the underlying issue to my sinus problems and successfully revise my sinus surgery with very minimal pain and no complications. No doubt, she is an amazing doctor and person and I would highly recommend her to everyone I know.

I found Dr Suchanova online and decided to try her after reading so many great reviews. I'm 28, with very bad allergies and my sinuses were ridiculously inflamed when I came to her. I had balloon sinuplasty and septoplasty performed by Dr Suchanova and could not be happier with the results. For the first time that I can remember, I am able to take deep, unrestricted breathes through both nostrils. She is an amazing doctor and person. I will recommend her to everyone I know, no question!
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Suchanova performed surgery to correct my deviated septum. It has made an AMAZING difference. I am no longer getting nasal infections every 4-5 weeks that require me to miss work and life activities. Dr. Suchanova uses very up to date techniques, and my recovery time was about half of the time that I was lead to expect in research on this procedure.
in Katy, TX |
Dr. Suchanova radiates confidence. She tells you exactly what you need to do and shows you test results o support her recommendation, explaining them clearly. She also advises of any possible complications with the recommended procedure(s). Then, she tells you the likelihood of those actually happening when she operates. My thyroidectomy went very smoothly with no complications and a speedy recovery and I am 75 years of age. Her confidence is contagious.
in Baytown,TX |
Hands down one of the best ent doctors any where. She is an amazing doctor and person and would highly recommend her. Don't make a mistake like me and see another doctor first and have a procedure and regret it. Go see Dr. Suchanova first and have no regrets.
in Orange, Tx |
Dr. Suchanova is nothing less than amazing! She was able to fix what a previous ENT specialist messed up. She is extremely knowledgeable, a very talented surgeon, and an all around wonderful doctor. She was able to find the underlying issue to my sinus problems and successfully revise my sinus surgery with very minimal pain and NO complications. You will NOT regret seeking out and making an appointment with Dr. Suchanova. Her talent is undeniable. She can and will solve your problems too.
in Bellville, Texas |
Dr Suchanova in my opinion is a great physician! She not only discovered what other ENTs were unable to diagnose, but completely repaired what the others had totally botched in a previous surgery! After over 20 years of suffering with severe allergic sinusitis I am finally on the road to being completely healed! This physician truly cares about her patients! What an angel sent from God!
