I got into the first Pulmonologist available and didn't know Dr Daniel. But I had been having shortness of breath and often mild to moderate difficulty breathing for a long time. It was getting worse. When I met Dr Suresh Daniel at Kelsey Seybold, he was warm and immediately attentive. He asked questions and LISTENED. He was efficient, thorough and kind. He was clear in his instructions. I followed his orders, took the pills he advised and within 2 days was able to breathe more freely than I can remember. I am delighted to have found him. Thank God for Dr Daniel.

I have been seeing Dr. Daniel for a few months now. He is very knowledgeable and a very good communicator. He spent with me gathering past history and current information regarding my issue with Asthma. He has always taken the time to make sure all of my questions are answered before I leave my appointment. He is a great doctor who cares about his patients and he is the best pulmonary physician. I recommend working with Dr. Daniel for your pulmonary needs.

Dr. Suresh Daniel is the consummate physician. He practices in a health care organization in which all patient information is on electronic files to which all physicians have access. This provides for coordinated, comprehensive care. He is an excellent communicator who maintains eye contact, listens & invites questions & comments. He is respectable, insightful, very knowledgeable, but most of all humble. The way he practices medicine, I suspect, comes from a tranquil place. He has been my physician for over 8 years. During each office visit, I am his total focus which causes me to know he is giving his utmost for me. The doctor-patient partnership (his formulating & directing a care program, my following the program) leads to a healthful lifestyle. Whenever I hear or see Kelsey-Seybold's motto. "Your Doctors for Life", I am reminded of how thankful I am for Dr. Daniel.

An exceptional physician. He was the doctor to my mother Sue Studley for 11 years. The original prognosis was 3yrs. and the pulmonary fibrosis was to end her life.

I have been a patient of Dr. Daniel for nearly 10 years, with my most recent visit two days ago. Dr. Daniel understands my lung problem and helps me with reasonable solutions. He is very knowledgeable, and he is a very good communicator. He takes ample time to thoroughly understand what is currently going on at every visit. I have recommended him to other patients who also are equally pleased. His staff is very professional, and his offices at Kelsey-Seybold are very efficient.

I was referred to Dr Daniel in 2004 and have not even considered seeing another pulmonary specialist. Dr Daniel takes the time to ensure I understand his findings. He was the first doctor (2004) that had ever given me a detailed statement of my office visit in a document. Who can really remember what their doctor recommends, saw in the x-rays, etc….. I can…. Because of his understanding years ago that patients doesn’t necessary retain the information doctors’ are delivering to them. Dr Daniel’s professionalism and experience are exceptional and I know that his caring for me as his patient is why my quality of life has improved tremendously. I thank God for placing Dr Daniel in my life.

I have been under doctor Daniel’s care for several years and my initial impressions about him have been confirmed and strengthened with each visit. Being a specialist in diseases of the lungs, he often deals with very difficult conditions. I have found Dr. Daniel to be very knowledgeable. He listens patiently to what ever is currently bothering me and carefully reviews with me my clinical chart, notes, tests results and examinations. Then, after a physical exam, we discuss his recommendations for treatment, further testing, future tests, and medications. All the above he does with his characteristic gentle manner.
