"Dr. Suzman did my rhinoplasty and it was the best decision I have ever made. It was for both medical and cosmetic reasons. My nose is gorgeous, so natural. I had an amazing experience. Everyone was so kind and comforting going into it. Dr. Suzman was gentile I barely bruised. I highly recommend Dr. Suzman and his team !"
"I don't have enough good things to say about Dr. Suzman and his team. I have been after a breast surgery for the past 10 years and once I met Dr. Suzman, I knew I didn't have to look any further. His side bed manners are exceptional and his work speaks for itself. If you are looking to get plastic surgery done, contact his team, you are in the best hands possible."
"Dr. Suzman closed after my MOHS surgery. The surgery was front & center on my nose. I have to say -- Dr. Suzman & the staff at his office, as well as the Rye Ambulatory Center, made a painful and uncomfortable situation as pleasant as possible with his informative, calming & pleasant nature, as well as a super-delightful staff. Helen Reyes, his PA-C, who handled a lot of my post-op visits and fresh wound care, was superb. Highly recommend."
"Everyone at Dr. Suzman's office is truly beyond wonderful. I've never had such a consistent experience with a doctor, his staff or hospital in my life and I'm utterly amazed and will miss interacting with them once I'm recovered from surgery (which was also excellent). 10 Stars!""
"I would highly recommend Dr. Suzman and his staff to anyone looking to undergo a rhinoplasty procedure. Each step of the way, from our first zoom consultation to our in-person appointments and surgery, he made me feel extremely comfortable and confident in my decision to choose him as my surgeon. It has only been about a week since my surgery, and I am already thrilled with the results."
