My office visits to Dr. Su have always been pleasant. The staff always make you feel at ease and comfortable. Medical procedures done by Dr. Su are done with precision, professionalism, and up most care for the patient . I highly recommend his services to my friends. He takes the time to explain the procedures to be done, testing that is needed to see in detail what type of treatment is required, reassures me to call if I need anything before my next scheduled appointment.
