Good Doctor. Highly Recommend.

I would recommend Dr. Sussman to anyone considering a vasectomy. Don't be fooled by the negative reviews, he is a wonderful doctor and very insightful.

I've always believed that things happen for a reason and that was the case with Doctor Sussman. While visiting family in California I had a medical incident and went to a local ER. I was examined and advised to see a specialist when I returned to Arizona. I found Doctor Sussman on-line and called his office as well as logged on to his website. I did a summary of the California incident and included my medical report from the ER. He was able to see the summary and I was able to see him within a few days. With the ER report Doctor Sussman went above and beyond working around his scheduled patients to do a full exam & test to determine my condition. On the same day I was seen, he arranged a date for surgery to resolve and address my medical condition. At the end of my visit I told him that I was blown away with the one-day results on my issue.. He looked me in the eye and said "I'm a Doctor and that's what I do"! He said that it was obvious that I need emergency care and that's what he did. I've been a business man for many years and understand that on-line reviews mainly and many times are a way for someone to vent. They are mostly presented from someone that is amazed or upset with results or lack of results. The conditions and results of medical issues are within our own bodies. Sometimes they can be fixed other times they can not. I'm moving on to the next stage with my issues with Doctor Sussman and I am hopeful for favorable results. I have 100% confidence in the good doctor on the upcoming surgery. The office procedure with the Doctor and his assistant Shawn with through and prompt. One Doctor can't be all things to all people, but I trust this Doctor and will follow his instructions and hope for the best.

Dr. Sussman was very patient and explained each procedure accurately. He made me feel comfortable by asking if I had any questions. Unfortunately, many of the reviews on here are false and even copy and pasted!

Very happy to have found Dr. Sussman

This is one of the worst urologists I've ever been to. I was hoping he would be better than Dr. Azher because he is absolutely horrible but I think these two are in a tie for the worst urologist.

It was evil of this lunatic to mischaracterize in my visit report my questions about & knowledge of my medical status as abrasive & bizarre. Instead of communicating normally, he was the one who was abrasive & bizarre. His diagnosis happened to be correct, that it was an either or situation. There are plenty of other competent doctors one can see without being subjected to the possibility of getting falsely slandered by a doctor, for God's sake. My family doctor couldn't believe that he would behave so oddly and discontinued recommending him. I'll never get over that a doctor would so abuse his power to write office visit reports to maliciously slander me like that. It's something no one would get over. I do feel better knowing that I've warned people in this forum & finally vented about it. It's so over the top. Uch.

Ernest Sussman appears to have mental health issues. When, after having the cystoscopy, I asked how much narrowing of the urethra there was, he became angry. On another visit I again asked him, and he again became angry. My question was a reasonable and even expected one. This question should not make a rational urologist angry. Dr. Sussman accused me of wanting an operation to fail so that I could sue him. He then said, "I don't play that." He also has great prejudice, anger and misunderstandings towards those who have had severe injuries and pain. Being disrespectful with degrading, unnecessary procedures for insufficient reasons is something of no concern to him. I prayed that God teach him what is valuable and what is not. Again, he appears to be mentally ill.

This doctor should not be in practice. He doesn't care about you the patient and just wants your money . He also rude to his staff. Hopefully this doctor will leave town.
October 23 , 2014
This Dr. Is a jerk Really bad Doctor. All he cares about is money My first visit he spent less then 5 min and charge me for a extended visit I called my ins co. And told them he over charges Don't go to this guy He won't do anything to help you .
March 16 , 2016
This Doctor is the worse I had in 74 years. He doesn't liston , in a hurry, won't let you talk, interupts, money is first and the way he acts I would not be surprise he is on uppers downers.
May 01 , 2015
This guy calls himself a doctor? Be careful, he is horrible. I will not go back and do not recommend him to anyone.
June 06 , 2014
My husband had a procedure done with this doctor and asked to speak my the doctor before it began. Dr. Sussman waited until my husband was put under anthestisa before coming into the room and then left before my husband woke up. Then, my husband was in pain once he got home. Dr. Sussman would not return our calls asking about the pain and anything that could be taken. This doctor does not care about his patients; he only cares about his wallet.
February 23 , 2012
I was looking around for a urologist; definitely would not go to this guy based on the worst reviews I've ever seen. Too bad uninformed people still go to least once.
May 28 , 2015
The guy's ad in the newspaper claims he treats prostate conditions. I was expecting a detailed exam and explanation of my gland. He asked me a few questions and told me to come back. He seems to always be in a hurry as to see as many patients a possible in a day. I'll never go back to him.
March 09 , 2015
This doctor is horrible. I don't think he cares about treating patients or keeps up with the times. He should retire. He is all about getting the patient in and out. He doesn't explain anything to you or spend time examining the patient.
June 06 , 2014
Dr Sussman is very unprofessional. He has no bed side manners. I would never recommend him to anyone. He doesn’t care about his patients needs.
July 01 , 2019
This doctor is too much in a hurry. Dollars and Insurance seems to be the only thing he is interested in. Examining rooms need to be kept cleaner. After an exam a paper towel is not the thing to be given to a patient to clean themselves. I will never recommend him to anyone nor will I ever go back to him. Such a disappointment.

Dr. Sussman appears to be only interested in how many patients he can schedule. He does not explain things adequately. He has no follow-up procedure after tests have been performed. I had to wait three weeks and no one had checked on the results or called to explain the wait. During one procedure I was in a lot of pain, but he did not seem to care. He is not prompt on seeing you once you are placed in an examining room.
December 15 , 2014
Dr. Sussman should not be practicing in this town. All he cares about is if your insurance will pay. When I asked an insurance question he started ranting about the government. I not a spring chicken and just wanted a doctor to help me. Do not see this doctor he is not a good man.

I wish I would have read the reviews on here before I went to him. I should have never gone to him but there's really no choice of doctors in Bullhead City, Azher is even worse, I hear patients all the time saying they wouldn't take their dog to him. Why can't we keep any of the good doctors in this town? I waited for over an hour to see Dr. Sussman, I think he was at lunch and not even in the office. I don't think he keeps up with the times in urology and he should just retire, he spends no time with the patient. He is by far the worst doctor I have ever been to in my life.

When he suddenly disappeared from his last office by Canyon Gate I was hoping he was gone for good. I had a mild rise in my psa and a normal Gleason score. He did a biopsy and told me if I didn't hear from him in 2 weeks things were ok. 5 weeks later he called me to say we need to operate. I said no and he gave no other option. I went to UCLA Med center where I was given a few choices including lets just keep an eye on it. Sussman released me and then called in 4 months wondering where I had been. He insisted I come in to be checked out. My co-pay was $50. I waited an exam room for 30 minutes when finally poked his head in and said how are you feeling? 5 minutes later the nurse said you can leave. 3 months later I get a bill for $68. Doctors are getting away from the psa testing and he hasn't a clue. Something is very wrong here.

This guy is a piece of work, go elsewhere

When my husband had to have a biopsy and ultrasound of his prostate we had to pay $388 up front even though I had two insurances. My insurances paid all but $50 and it's been 30 day and I can't seem to get my refund.
May 04 , 2015
Give me a break, I went to this guy after waiting a month to get in for kidney stones. He tells me to drink water! I already knew that, you don't need a doctor degree for that. Definitely not impressed with him. The doctors in Bullhead City are a joke!
June 07 , 2014
This doctor is all about money, he doesn't explain anything or even answer any questions. Why can't we keep any good doctors in this town? I've never been to a city that has such a problem, most of the doctors here barely speak English and the American docs that are left probably can't go to a nicer area.
