During my appointment, Dr. Cary Suter was completely inappropriate, shouting, gritting his teeth, constantly punching his fists forcefully downward through the air or on his desk, and using every swear word in the book, including F***, D***, S***, A**. He seemed to have lost control over his behavior. He was calling my other doctors (whom I like very much), complete idiots (in much worse language) and telling me that I should never see them again. He shouted that none of my other doctors were doing their jobs; they were expecting him to do all of the work in treating my condition. The truth is, they had referred me to him, a neurologist, for a neurological issue, while they continue to treat me quite competently for other issues. When I tried to explain my symptoms to Dr. Suter, he cut me off and continued to cuss about the fact that his computer was down and therefore he did not have my records available. Whenever I tried to get a word in, he either interrupted me or cut me off before I could finish. This went on for about 45 minutes. When I explained that his anger and behavior were causing me to feel that he was angry with me he shouted at me, "I'M DONE HERE!!!", turned away, and stomped off very quickly and furiously down the hallway. He did not return. I was absolutely shocked; I have never seen behavior like this from a doctor. The nurse did my check-out paperwork and took my blood pressure as I was leaving - the top number was 180; I was shaking, red in the face, and crying. Besides his behavior being completely inappropriate, outrageous, and unbelievable, Dr. Cary Suter was not at all helpful in treating my condition. None of my questions were answered, and I felt horrible when I left. I don't trust him to ever actually look into my health concerns. He seemed to be having a nervous breakdown. Obviously, I will not choose to see Dr. Cary Suter again.
