10/11/13 3 2 2 2 Dr. Sullivan is the worse doctor i have ever gone to see in my life, when i was 22 he told me that my body was shutting down and that its like a car and over time they just give out i went to see him because i fell and hurt my wrist, recently i just took my 20 month old son down to see him cause he had a really bad cough, runny nose, and wouldnt eat or drink anything, Dr. Sullivan said oh he is fine but i cant say that he wont get sick in the next day or two he could pick up a virus any time anywhere. The next night i took my son back to the hospital and seen a different doctor and she told me my son had croup really bad its been 3 weeks now and he is finally getting better thanks to the meds he has been given. In my opinion Dr. Sullivan should have his licenses revoked and not allowed to ever practice medicine ever again!!!!!  Respond

09/01/11 1 1 1 1 There really aren't words to describe what a terrible physician this man is ... the fact that he rates a 2 is appalling. He's a zero. According to Dr. Sullivan there was nothing wrong with my grandfather. He's dead ... my uncle just had arthritis, he's dead. mother was healthy too, she has stage 4 cancer: cancer is her lungs, her bones, her colon, her plueral lining, her adrenal glands. Great job Dr Sullivan. Somewhere in hell the Devil is missing his best friend!  Respond

10/12/10 1 1 1 1 Ahh.. good ol Dr Sullivan. He told my husband that there is something things in life that you just have to live with when he went to see him about stomach pain and heart burn issues. He indicated it was very painful somedays and Dr Sullivan made the comment that when it gets to bad he always knows where his gun is!! Seriously.. Great Dr!  Respond

29/08/10 1 1 1 1 Horrible bedside manner is one thing and can be tolerable when a doctor is accurate and good at their job,but DR SULLIVAN has horrible bedside manner AND is a horrible doctor.He told my boyfriend to "Suck it up" and it turns out he had 2nd degree burns! He was rude to me and didn't believe us when we told him how much pain he was in. If he is working at the ER you are better off going home then seeing him. I would not recommend him to anyone and I am sending a letter of complaint to the medical board about his mistake and his ignorance. HE needs to be retired... immediately!  Respond

24/07/08 1 1 1 1 For a year he told a woman that a lump was normal. He did not examine it or do any tests. Now she has aggressive cancer that would have been found a year ago if he had gotten off his ass and examined patients.  Respond
