I have seen Dr. Sussman for a chronic plantar fasciitis. I had seen several physicians regarding this condition and he was the only one who was able to cure it completely. He was understanding, patient and committed to finding a remedy and getting me back to working out and pain free. I couldn't be happier with him as an orthopedic physician.
My experience is simple. I had four tears in my elbow. After Dr. Sussman’s performed PRP on me I was skeptical because it did not work for the first 3 weeks then the fourth week the pain level started to go down. I am now 100 percent better. I pay tennis on an A level and now I can even throw a baseball about 300 yard again.
Dr. Sussman is the first physician I've met during the last eight years of seeking an explanation and successful plan of treatment for my hip and sacroiliac pain. Each visit he has shown both his compassion for what I am going through. I trust Dr. Sussman completely. He takes my perspective as a patient into account, allowing us to work as a team towards a goal.
