The physician is highly professional in both her approach to the medical problem and the patient's needs - seen in a person's past experiences with health, probabilities of improvement, and age. She is also compassionate, which helps in the patient's efforts at healing beyond surgery. Despite the pandemic, Northwestern has proven itself in the forefront of excellent care and availability to the patient.

Dr. Suleiman is amazing! She cares about my progress, asking questions. And makes sure that I understand what went on during my surgery. Alexa Smith, never seems annoyed with I send a MyChart message. And I do send a lot. They both are a great team. And I'm fortunate to have been, and still being cared for by both, Dr. Suleiman, and Alexa.

Very professional. She shared her philosophy that we found insightful and helpful matching my needs. She was thorough. She asked questions and answered all asked. She had additional X-rays taken based on what she saw right there and then. Met with us again and set up a plan for moving forward. She was encouraging, not over bearing, and explained things well. We felt reassured about our situation and confident in her after our first visit.

Relative to some of my underlying conditions and Dr. Suleiman risk concerns I asked that she follow up with my other doctors to see what their input is regarding those risks to do hip replacement surgery.

Of course, I can only base this on pre-op visits so far, but Dr. Suleiman and Alexa Smith are very sensitive to patient anxiety. They spend as much time as the patient needs to have his/her questions answered and they respond to email questions on the patient portal almost immediately. They appear to be very knowledgeable and inspire confidence.
