Dr. Sugarmann was truly a wonderful physician. I saw him about 2 years ago for an emergency surgery, & he was so great, that since then I have recommended my family members, who needed surgery, to him. What I appreciated most about him was, not just his skill, but his personality. He was straight & to the point with me about everything that was going on. he also has a fantastic sense of humour. Something that to me is important. Absolutely would recommend him to everyone

I went to Dr. Sugarmann for an evaluation on a Wednesday and two days later I had my surgery. Dr. Sugarmann sat with me and explained what was going to happen in clear detail. When I woke up, Dr. Sugarmann was there to check on me and to explain what he did. Overall this was a wonderful experience.

I recently had gallbladder surgery to remove my gallbladder and gall stones. Dr. Sugarmann and his staff expertly explained the process, allayed any fears I had and prepared me as well as anyone can be prepared for this surgery. The surgery went flawlessly and I received excellent follow-up care during recovery. I was extremely satisfied with the care I received. I would confidently refer my family and friends to Dr. Sugarmann should they need care. I am well and happy!

Dr. Sugarmann took care of three procedures for me--a colon resection, a gallbladder removal and an incisional hernia repair. He took good care of me! It was easy to schedule the surgery for a time that worked well for me (two days before Thanksgiving) and he was thorough and cautious with all of my pre-op needs. He came by every morning while I was in the hospital and answered every question without making me feel rushed. I told him that if my appendix ever bursts, I know who to call!

My gastroenterologist referred me to Dr. Sugarmann. From the first moment I met him, I felt comfortable. He was friendly, yet very professional. He explained the surgery (right hemicolectomy) in detail, and he answered the many questions I had. He calmed my anxieties and after that initial visit, I had no doubt he was the right physican to do my surgery. I spent six days in the hospital, during which time he came to check on me daily. He never failed to put a smile on my face. Great doctor,
