My name is Chris Mondello and I'm super happy with Dr suggs and his staff any time I had questions or concerns his office was happy to listen and give me his advice. I'm over a month out and couldn't be happier with the surgery he performed I would recommend them to anyone.

My husband is almost 8 months out from having the sleeve surgery. Our experience with Dr. Suggs and his staff 100 % satisfaction. They are there for you, they are available when you need them. There are no dumb questions, your not a number you have a name. You know everything before you have your surgery, pros and cons. We particularly like the fact that they use words we can understand . You have a concern, they have a concern. Just give them a call. Would we recommended Dr. Suggs? Simply Yes

Dr. Suggs botched my simple gall bladder removal cutting a bile duct which led to me becoming septic. He refused to believe the excruciating pain i was in while in his office. After whuch i had to go to er was admitted into ICU. He had to do 2 additional surgeries to try & repair the mess he made almost killing me! Finally i went to bham my sphintor of odie duct was splinted and i began recovering. Dr. Suggs ruined my life! Go to a vet before you go to him!!!!

Dr. Suggs cares about his patients as much during follow up care as he does before the surgery. I have been under his care for 6 years and wouldn't consider any other doctor.
