Dr. Surasky is a great guy. I think he may have just saved my life. He uses non opioid medication to fix withdrawal symptoms while your body continues to heal. It's better than Suboxone it's better than methadone. Don't hesitate to go see him.

by far, the best Dr I have ever come across. I have known him for many years, i have relapsed a few times and he has never judged me, he welcomed me back and helped me with everything, going above and beyond doing things that he hasn't had to do for me, and getting me into other Dr's offices to treat my benzo addiction to slowly taper me off of them. this man is a saint . dont get me wrong he has been brutally honest with me at times but its what i needed to stay clean this time!
in Mineola, NY |
Very good doctor who will work with you and is concerned with the patient.

My experience with Dr Surasky has been nothing short of amazing. He makes me feel very comfortable & is very informative about everything he does & prescribes. His office has late hours & I have always been able to schedule emergency appointments quickly. There is not a long wait to see him. He listens to any fears & concerns addressing them all. There is a parking lot directly across the street as well.

Dr. Surasky has been one of the most important factors in my recovery. His office staff is reliable and I'm always easily able to make appointments to get my Vivitrol shots. In addition to administering the medicine, Dr. Surasky goes out of his way to check in with me and make sure I'm seeking additional tools of recovery and that I'm doing well. I've had nothing but positive experiences with him and would highly recommend him to anyone struggling with opiod addiction.
