Dr. Sugg is amazing. Extremely competent, caring and wonderful with patients and their families. Dr. Sugg's bedside manner is only surpassed by her skills as a surgeon and CARE TAKER! She is very good at explaining options and recommending the healthiest care plan. Her staff is well chosen, competent and under great leadership. Dr. Sugg and her staff take extra time to ensure you understand what is going to happen and what risks are involved. My trust in Dr. Sugg is 110%

Dr. Sugg is a great surgeon. She helped me with breast cancer. She has pioneered techniques that help with a great visual outcome. She takes time with patients. She is a good communicator. Highly recommend.

I found Dr. Sugg to be so competent, personal, and attentive. Amazing to me that she is a surgeon--who I've found don't necessarily have the best bedside manner!
