Not a good experience. Was told that the reason I had trouble breathing was due to a paralyzed diaphragm and my weight. His advice was to lose weight and come back in six months. Turns out I have cancer. How was that not seen on 2 chest X-rays?

I would NEVER recommend Doctor Sussman. I called to get an inhaler RX refilled..I workedwith my insurance company 1 month to get an override for the more expensive medication Rx used for 8 years.. I contacted Doctor Sussman’s office and was told the doctor WILL NOT write the RX because insurance will not cover the cost..I explained my insurance has already authorized the payment. Doctor continued to refused the RX stating insurance will not pay! Inappropriate medical care!! Unreliable care!

I chose Dr. Sussman based on reviews. He's knowledgeable and compassionate, and is already miles ahead of where my last pulmonologist was as far as ordering tests and treatment options.
