She was fantastic! Very kind and caring. She took the time to listen to my concerns and answered my questions.
Dr. Suri was nice enough and I have to assume that she knew what she was talking about, but she was in a huge rush. My overwhelming impression was that she was trying to get through the visit in record time. She had a list of questions to ask me and was dutifully going to record the answers to all of these questions, but really did not want to linger on any one of them. I felt more like a checklist and not like a human being. Worse yet: I asked her about the loss of libido that has accompanied perimenopause for me. She didn't have too much to say; she asked me about my relationship with my partner and I explained that he is very attentive and that I really have no complaint with his behavior or the relationship. I just don't have much desire. She said she would give me an article on the topic about strategies to deal with it that might include experimenting with toys, porn, improved communication, etc. Imagine my surprise when, in the After Visit Summary, I find an article written for MEN called "How to Have More Sex -- with Your Wife." The article encouraged men to be more attentive to their wife's emotional and sexual needs, which is of course laudable. If I were a man coming to my doctor concerned about my wife's lack of sexual interest I'm sure it might be very helpful. However, given that I am not a man and I do not have a wife. I was stunned that she could not come up with anything addressed to me, her actual patient. Can it really be true that in 2019 a GYNECOLOGIST views a couple's sexual problems through the lens of the male partner rather than attending to her patient's concerns? Does a woman have no role in sex other than as a man's willing or unwilling partner? I was sure that she must have given me the wrong article by mistake, so I wrote to her to let her know, as I was still pretty miffed at the oversight. She wrote me back, promptly and politely, to let me know that no, it wasn't a mistake. She thought it would be a useful article for me to read together with my partner (which she had not mentioned in her notes) and pointed out that the article had been written by a woman. Which was, of course, beside the point. I'm sure there are many men who might benefit from the article (although if she had listened to me she might have remembered that I told her that my partner is extremely attentive to my needs), but I am a woman (along with the rest of her patients). I could have used an article about how to deal with the hormonal effects of perimenopause (or even an article explaining what I should expect from perimenopause), but that is not what I got. She did thank me for the feedback, which I appreciated, but I remain appalled by her lack of awareness about what constitutes an appropriate response for her female patient. It has been two weeks and clearly I'm still really steamed about it. I don't know if I'm going to be able to trust this doctor again; I will probably have to find a new one.
words can not describe the level of unprofessionalism and the level of unsanitary practice was appalling
I thought that Dr. Suri was very nice and engaging. She took copious notes and was very thorough. Awesome bedside manner also.
I have already recommended this dr as she is great
very friendly doctor and nurse
Would not do regular test since it was a problem visit!!
I love Dr.Suri. She makes me feel safe and cared for every visit.
The doctor was high spirited, very friendly, down to earth, fun, explained things well, and very personable. She is really upbeat, sensitive and very considerate.
Dr. Suri seems to be a good doctor, but could improve her bedside manner, and be more gentle during her examination, and should explain what she is doing during the exam. I expect that from a GP, and even more so from an OBGYN.
