Professional Statement
During medical school, while accompanying her grandfather on an appointment, Dr. Suero experienced first hand the positive impact a geriatrician could make in the life of both a patient and their family. It was this gentle care and positive connection that inspired her to become a geriatrician. Today she does this in her own practice by focusing on the needs of the patient while working collaboratively with others involved in their care. Her goal is to develop a trusted relationship with each patient, offering guidance on the aging process and ways to improve their overall quality of life.

This was a follow up from an emergency room visit the week before where I had 6 staples put in to close a scalp wound and Dr. Suerro removed the staples and checked to make sure that I did not have any other issues related to the accident.

10/09/2019
I first was met by an Intern who took my information in a perfectly professional way. The Doctor came in and followed up on the information the Intern had gathered and ordered a urine specimen and a few minutes later she told me the results and ordered a Prescription at my usual Pharmacy. A pleasant experience with a good outcome.

My mother needed a referral to an urologist because she has reoccurring bladder infection that go septic. The provider told me to discontinue the antibiotics if it didn't help and she would have a culture. Two catheted samples were taken but not grown. A sample was taken at the office but it was contaminated with stool. When it goes sepsis she is placed in the hospital and is forced onto hospice but recovers when she gets home. We have to keep her out of this situation because she does not want to be placed on the figurative compassionate iceflow. Hospice is a compassionate program but a profit generator who promotes it as a budget saver it becomes a compassionate iceflow. This practice does not help keep her off the iceflow.

Dr. Suerro is the BEST doctor I've every interracted with. She cared for my very old parents, and I was thrilled when she agreed to be my doctor. I have full confidence in her, and know I'll get excellent medical advice. If you could clone her, our senior community would be much healthier.

Excellent service by doctor. Some improvements by staff in this office would be a welcome change. Prescriptions that were needed immediately were sent to mail order pharmacy not the local pharmacy on file. Referrals are not always done without repeated calls.

I have been seen by many doctors over the years. Dr. Suero is one of the best, if not the best of them all. I have full confidence in the care she provides.
100

09/17/2019
I feel that she and all the providers in the clinic are under pressure to serve more with less providers. It is hard for them to stay within the allotted time. Dr. Suero does an admirable job. I feel the atmosphere of many departments in Kadlec reflect a negative change with the Providence system.
