Dr. Suggs is the best surgeon anyone could ever ask for. He is very kind and compassionate. He treats everyone like they are family. He performed a vertical gastric sleeve on me and it has changed my life. My husband Ian about to go through the same surgery with Dr. Suggs. He is absolutely the best!

ANY TIME I GET A CHANCE TO RECOMMEND HIM I DO, HIS SURGICAL INFECTION RATE IS NIL AND HIS AFTER CARE WITH HIS STAFF IS AWESOME I HAVE HAD 3 DIFFERENT SURGERIES BY HIM AND ALL THREE TIMES HAS BEEN GREAT. CATHY AND STAFF ARE FRIENDLY AND INFORMATIVE, THEY GO OVER AND ABOVE HELPING US OUT WITH ISSUES. DR SUGGS IS ALWAYS NEATLY DRESSED IRONED CLOTHES, VERY PROFESSIONAL AND WHEN SPEAKING TO US HE IS VERY PROFESSIONALLY AND SHAKING OUR HAND EACH TIME ASKING AFTER FAMILY ETC. GO SEE HIM!!!!

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.
