Patient Comments (2)
in Latham, NY |
Saw Dr. Sukumaran today, march 22, 2017 for blood clot issue. Very carefully explained everything to me. Reviewed my previous doctors findings with me. Always asked if I had questions about anything while talking. She took her time and did not rush me out of the office like some doctors do.
in Rexford, NY |
She is the only doctor of any kind who has ever asked me to explain what she has just told me about my diagnosis, therefore insuring that I understand everything. She answered all my questions and is proceeding very logically and carefully with further diagnostics and then treatment. She is a warm, caring doctor who I would recommend to anyone.
