Ratings for Dr. Howard Sutkin
I rushed to make a decision to be treated because I was going on a vacation. Dr Sutkin had an opening to operate two days after the consultation so I didn't consult another doctor. He was pleasant during the consultation but in subsequent appointments he was abrupt and gave me no time to ask questions or discuss concerns. When I told him that four weeks after my hand surgery I was still having a considerable amount of stabbing pain and a pins and needles feeling he said "well I'm going to guess that you have a low threshold of pain". I went to another hand surgeon who diagnosed me with CRPS. I would advise him and anyone else considering hand surgery to look up this truly horrible disease. Did the surgery cause it? Impossible to say, but it's a possibility. I found his nurse to be unprofessional and unsympathetic. A bad experience.
I enjoyed my whole experience with Dr. Sutkin and his staff. He is a bit low key, but my results,exceded my expectations. it's been two months since my surgerys, and I'm looking better every week. I would suggest to shop around, and then go to Sutkin, Your not paying for all the Bells and Whistles... but a very competent surgeon.
Results, Very pleased! I went to Dr. Sutkin as a patient who had cancer and had both of my breasts removed by another Dr. When i first went into meet with the Dr. I was very nervous because of what i had already gone through, and I even brought my husband along. I left my consultation feeling hopeful. So far I have had 1 surgery, and i see the Dr. 1 a week. 1 more surgery to go. I am very confident wiht the choices i have already made reguarding my health and Dr. Sutkin.
Dr. Sutkin did my breasts and a tummy tuck. He also operated on my sister and my aunt. He did an absolutely fantastic job. I interviewed four other doctors in the area and he was by far the most well trained, honest, qualified, compasionate and skilled. THANK YOU Dr. Sutkin - I love my results!
I had cancer an had to remove 1 of my breasts. I was very sad, and uncomfortable in my own skin once the cancer and my breast were removed.(done by another MD) I went to numberous consultations with Dr.'s from all around the Bay Area. I wanted someone to help me feel good about myself again, and fix my breast. I went to Dr. Sutkin on a referal from a friend of mine who had been a patient for other purposes. She was so impressed with his abilities I desided to call his office to make a appointment. If nothing more then to meet with him and get his prospective. After my consultation we,my husband and I,talked long an hard about my options. We felt comfortable with the Doctors knowledge and his plan for my recovery that we desided to schedual my Reconstruction Surgery as soon as his scheduale allowed. It's now been a few months since my surgery and I feel like a new women. Im now comfortable in my skin, I love my breasts, and I'm extreemly happy with my results. I owe it all to Dr. Sutkin
I work at a hospital. I read the reviews and have to agree with the older ones... besides, the recent ones sound like they are made up! There are alot of really good cosmetic surgeons out there and I feel I could have gotten better results. Works too fast I am told. Worse, I paid too much too.
