As A Psychiatrist:

"Dr. Sussman has been a valued member of our team of clinicians. He has helped many on our team understand the complexities around medication choices for our patients... But in addition to his role as consultant and team member, Dr. Sussman has embraced his work as psychotherapist. He is a dedicated practitioner of the art of psychotherapy. One cannot do this work with children and adolescents without having a sense of humor and a sense of lightheartedness. Dr. Sussman is literally able to get on the floor and squawk like a chicken, to abandon his dignity in the service of the child. He is equally able to draw on his adult capacities to work with those who are more advanced in age and who play only with words. His ability and willingness to use all the parts of himself in his work help him to forge the connections with his patients that matter..."

-Mimi Blasiak, MSW, director of Adele Lebowitz Center for Youth & Families at Washington School of Psychiatry

5 stars

"Dr. Sussman is an outstanding, ethical doctor who is highly regarded for his research in ADHD treatment and in adolescent psychiatry. He uses all of the resources available to him to treat his patients, tailoring his approach to your individual needs, and he is dedicated to using psychotherapy effectively. I am a young adult, and I am very grateful for his services. He has helped me treat my ADHD and other ailments with a well-rounded approach, and it has helped me perform better in the classroom, in the workplace and in my personal life. More importantly, I'm a much happier, more confident and capable individual now that I have found effective treatment for my condition. Dr. Sussman's sense of humor and kindness also makes it easy to build an open and trusting doctor-patient relationship, and our sessions are pleasant--regardless of the topic we're discussing. I highly recommend him. (Rating: 5/5 stars)"
