Ratings for Dr. Gordon Sussman
I absolutely love 'Dr. S'. I have been seeing him for close to 5 years, and get allergy shots every month (which work, by the way - I can now walk past a lawnmower without wanting to die). Dr S has a wicked sense of humour and goes above and beyond for his patients. He also runs a research lab and clinical trials - his level of knowledge is truly unmatched. If you want a swanky office then go elsewhere, but if you are looking for someone to actually solve your medical complaints, go see him!
If you want the best Allergist go see Sussman. He is a pioneer/visionary. If you want a fancy office and lots bling go elsewhere. Unlike most Allergist in the field, Sussman spends a lot of time researching/clinical trails trying to solve the big problems such as peanut allergies. He has been doing this specialty for a long time. His dad was also an Allergist. If you health matters then see Sussman.
Referred by my doc for my sons peanut allergy. He took a very thorough history, did skin test, and presented a few options. Our son is now doing a peanut study at his clinic. His research team of Safi and Dina have been just amazing and make my son feel so at ease. They are always trying to make the research area more comfortable for patients and it shows how much Dr. Sussman and his team really care about their patients.
This is the smartest doctor I have seen. When you meet with him you can see he’s full of knowledge. I have been going from doctor to doctor for years, and no one knew how to support me. I went to him one time and my concerns were figured out
Words fail to describe the level of inefficiency and rudeness of front office staff. For my first appt, I called and left messages for approx a month. Once the phone was answered by a human who said she would call me back. She never did. Eventually, I personally went to the office to make an appointment. I can't comprehend how others have rated the front office staff so well as I continue to have an impossible time to get a callback. Dr. Sussman seems to be well known in Toronto for having trained a lot of allergists, so he definitely has a lot of experience. My first visit, I found him rather brusque, not open to questions and quick to give only one solution. However, subsequent experiences with him showed he was more open to input and dialogue about my complex condition. The place is cramped, full of people, very hard to get a copy of your files, but a very helpful nurse located in the basement is wonderful. That being said, very unprofessional office staff make going to this doctor a dreadful experience.
First impression was scary. Building is old and outdated. But then I met him and he was phenomenal. He helped me with my hives and then even saw my nephew for his peanut allergy. His staff is great. Can't say enough about Safi and Deena in research. I havent met a doctor like him. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Funny too. Highly recommend.
I have been a patient of Dr. Sussman’s since 2003. He is a pleasure to work with. I have never had to wait for my appointment time; he is polite, friendly and to the point. I wish all doctors were as patient, kind and understanding and clear about medical matters as Dr. Sussman He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, a complete expert in his field and yet explains things clearly. He treats patients with respect and dignity, gives them a chance to ask questions and listens well. His warm nature, sense of humour and charismatic smile truly helped to reassure me that I was in good hands. I was extremely pleased with his ability to help me feel relaxed and inform me of what I needed to know regarding my medical histology. I was also very impressed by how well his work and the work of his staff were organized. His administration personnel and clinical assistants were so helpful and professional that I would like to make special mention of Deena Kobric, Clinical Research Coordinator, who navigated me through a complicated programme like a pro: She kept me constantly apprised, was responsive to my questions and very efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Sussman to anyone seeking a best-in-class level of professional care, and especially for being a pioneer in establishing his independent clinic in internal medicine, allergy and immunology.
I recently had my first appointment with Dr. Sussman. I had to contact his office prior to the appointment in order to make travel arrangements to and from Toronto. The staff was extremely helpful, returning my call and answering all my questions within a day. The appointment itself was punctual, and very thorough. He and his staff have a great wealth of knowledge and experience. Definitely one of the best experiences I have had with a clinic on my rare disease journey.
