Dr Suhr has been my doctor for many years and has provided excellent advice and care in my visits. Shows the utmost concern for any problems I have.

July 2017
excellent doctor

July 2017
Dr. Suhr called me at home at 9:30 PM on the day of, and following my visit and exam in his clinic. The reason for his prompt follow up call was new evidence he had discovered or learned from the radiologist studying the x-rays taken that day, and to notify me that he had already submitted prescription modifications to my pharmacy, following previous subscriptions issued just hours earlier. From this patient´s point of view, this demonstrated professional attitude and concern for the patient´s wellbeing are uniquely outstanding in today´s hectic world, given the well known pressures on physicians´ incomes brought on by competitive insurance companies.

July 2017
Dr. Suhr is warmhearted and knowledgeable. I have great confidence in his care and advice.

June 2017
Dr. Suhr is very nice. I believe he is very conscientious. He does not talk a lot, and I often must ask him to repeat, because I have a hearing loss, but he always does explain what I need to know in a way that I can understand. He spent a lot of time at this appointment focusing on my very painful left shoulder; I did appreciate that, as it was quite a problem for me.
