Dr. Su is awesome.  I have been his patient for almost eight years. He is always kind, gentle, patient and professional….and he genuinely cares. I have recommended him many times to friends and will continue to do so. I am well underway for full recovery after my surgery…..I am now seven weeks post surgery and had my last PT appointment today.  Thank you so much…you have a great team.

Patient Comment

I saw Dr. Su this last summer and had a lot of pain in my right elbow. People I work with had me convinced I would need surgery. Dr. Su, after checking my elbow out gave me two simple exercises to do. After 30 days the pain was next to nothing and now it is gone. I am happy with the suggestions he gave me, and glad I was referred to him by my knee doctor.

From the very friendly and accomodating front desk to Dr. Su and his PA Megan, the staff at Vadnais Heights are wonderful. Would recomend to anyone. As far as surgery, Dr. Su helped put me at ease, has a wonderful chair side manner, and is a fine surgeon.
