Dr. Sussman is awesome. After a bad experience with our last pediatrician, Dr. Sussman made us realize what we had been missing. She created a thorough mental health plan for my son and spent about an hour reviewing his history andconcerns with us. She even gave him permission to call her himself if he ever needed anything. She is truly the epitome of what a great bedside manner looks like, caring, informative and respectful.

Dr. Sussmann was everything I was looking for when switching practices for our 7 month old daughter. She is warm and gentle with my daughter, patient and flexible with me, and up to date on the latest research and recommendations. Shegave us a lot of time and offered practical advice on flu shots, starting solids, and sleeping. I'm very happy with our experience with Dr. Sussmann and the rest of the staff in her office.
