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!
