Staff was pleasant and helpful. Dr. Sudduth was very detailed in explaining my back condition and answered any questions I had. My appointment was at 8:45. I was checked in by that time, but waited another 45 minutes before I was seen. Seemed awfully early in the day to be behind 45 minutes.

Seemed to be very knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner. He explained my condition to me in detail that was easy to understand. I would definitely recommend Dr. Suddeth. You may have to wait a few minutes to see him during your visits, but it is worth it.

I enjoyed my visit with Dr Sudduth. He was very thorough in going over a plan to alleviate my arthritis pain. As I am already on a lot of medication I was very pleased that he looks for other avenues for treating pain such as occupational and physical therapy. I am looking forward To my visits with Dr Sudduth of having less pain.

Tricare isn't accepted in many places in Birmingham and I was incapacitated to the point that I was on medical leave because I couldn't even sit to work from home. Dr Sudduth and his staff work diligently to obtain my MRI from Montgomery and referred me to a surgeon who saw me in a week and repaired my injury finalky giving me relief and my quality of life back. There isn't words or actions that I'm capable of to express my gratitude. Their sense of urgency, professionalisn and level of care is at a high quality beyond anything I've experienced before. I've served 17 years in the Air Force Reserves and because of him and his staff I am healthly and strong enough to complete enough to retire and serve beyond 20 years. I recommend him to any and everybody.

I went to see Dr Sudduth because I hurt my foot on a run with my husband. One of the first comments out of his mouth was that people of my size should not be running and that I needed to lose at least 50 pounds before running again. He continued his lecture by telling me I need a strict diet to lose my "baby fat" from my 4 month old daughter. It was embarrassing but what makes it worse is that he did not give me any help for the reason I went to see him. Not to ice it or take Ibuprofen for pain. I am no better off now than I was before the appointment. Rest assured though! I'm sure I will receive a bill for his "services." Very disappointed in his lack of professional behavior. Would not recommend his care to anyone.
