My name is Michael E. and I am a patient of Dr. Suway. I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea a little over a year ago. My doctor, recommended an oral device since I am an airline pilot. This is the very first device I have used and he recommended I visit Dr. Suway to get fitted for an oral appliance.
The entire process of being a patient with Dr. Suway has been extremely rewarding. He makes you feel like part of his office family instead of a patient. I felt I was in the hands of a consummate professional extremely experienced and knowledgeable about the device and the fitting process. At no time was the experience uncomfortable or painful. I went back for numerous fittings and each time the visit went well as Dr. Suway strived to get the perfect fit for my mouth and airway.
I have been wearing the device for a little less than a year and it has changed my life in a very positive manner. I have been sleeping much better and I am dreaming again, which I haven’t done in many years. I wake with better energy and focus. Since this is the first device I have tried for sleep apnea I can’t compare it to any CPAP machines or other devices on the market. I just know it works for me.
Would I recommend this device to combat sleep apnea and would I recommend Dr. Suway as the doctor to fit the device and get it right? Oh yes I would! I highly recommend the Somnomed oral device to treat sleep apnea. Any patient coming in the door to Dr. Suway’s office will be treated with the same exceptional care and professionalism I received. So, with as much zeal as I can convey in this testimonial, I highly recommend Dr. Suway and his staff to anyone in search of treating their sleep apnea. Your life may change for the better also.
I was diagnosed with sleep apnea about 5 years ago. I was sleeping 14 hours a day and still felt exhausted all the time. I knew that I snored but still didn't really believe I had this condition. A sleep study confirmed that I did.
After learning what it meant to have sleep apnea I became a committed patient. I realized the problem was more than just being tired. The risk of stroke and cardiovascular implications were of major concern to me.
When the doctor told me that I had to use a CPAP machine every night I didn't argue, even though I hated everything about it. I hated the noise, the getting tangled up in the hoses, that constant cleaning and refilling. I hated the way the mask would shift and wake you up with a horrific noise. I love to travel and the machine was so cumbersome that I left it home after the first trip.
Then my pulmonary doctor recommended I consider an oral appliance and sent me to Dr. Suway. I did a little research before the first appointment and had numerous questions. Dr. Suway took the time to explain the mechanics of what he intended to do and answered all my questions. It sounded too good to be true.
I have no idea how long I have had sleep apnea, but once diagnosed after a sleep study, I attempted to use a C-PAP. I was not successful with it, probably because I am moderately claustrophobic. Knowing an oral device was an alternative treatment, I found Dr. Suway’s website, contacted his office, and had my sleep study results sent there. Dr. Suway ordered a custom fitted oral device for me and I immediately noticed a decrease in my snoring, more restful sleep and a pronounced decrease in TMJ discomfort.
I am now on my second device. There was no discomfort in the procedure for the custom fitting since Dr. Suway used an imaging procedure rather than creating a mold. I have now been wearing a device for 4 years and am pleased that I have improved sleep without the use of an awkward C-PAP.
Dr. Suway and his staff are wonderful to work with. He is very knowledgeable and also compassionate in his desire to improve the sleep experience of his patients. I would recommend that others try an oral device for moderate sleep apnea.
My pulmonologist determined that the CPAP was making my sleep apnea worse and suggested I try an oral appliance. Where the CPAP made my breathing difficult and caused countless sleepless nights, the oral appliance is comfortable, greatly improves my breathing, and my sleep is so much better. From creating the custom scans to fitting the appliance, the entire process was absolutely painless. The oral appliance is a significant improvement over the CPAP and I can’t imagine sleeping without it.
Dr. Suway and his team are absolutely incredible. I always feel comfortable and informed with every step of the process that I've had in general routine cleanings and also fixing cracked teeth, etc. Just recently went during these COVID times and I've never seen a place so clean, well maintained, and at the forefront of leveraging new technology and tools to keep me safe. Special masks, machines to pull and filter air, etc. It was truly amazing! Super recommend this practice to anyone and everyone, but especially those that are concerned with seeing a dentist during COVID.
Dr. Suway has been a part of my family for years dating back to when my grandparents started going to him many moons ago. Now as the third generation, I love that he is my dentist and I enjoy going to my appointments! Can you believe I actually look forward to them?! He's pleasant, he's knowledgeable and he sings! I have a great experience every time I visit from the exceptional customer service to the comfort that I feel when I'm in the chair. I recommend Dr. Suway and his team to anyone searching for a great dentist! You will be glad that you did!
After more than a decade of horrible dental service experience, Dr. Suway is a breath of fresh air! He takes his time to ensure thorough work in a comfortable setting. His team is above-par in customer service and truly cares about their clients. By far the best dentist I've ever been to! And the initial consultation and exam is complimentary for new patients! I'm most definitely a lifelong client from this point forward
Don’t put your needed dental work off anymore! If you are afraid of the novacaine injection,as I was, do not fear...Dr Suway does it perfectly! I would never go to the dentist before now, but my fears have been put to rest....they also give nitrous which makes the whole event tolerable. BEST experience ever....Thanks Dr Suway! I wish I had come to you years before!
I called the office last week and they told me they were booked till next year. However, they said they would call me if they could accommodate earlier. I was considering elsewhere when I got a call from Tameisha to come in the same day. What a incredible experience. They got me in a few minutes to my appointment. My dentist was very polite, funny and was done in no time. I wish I stayed a little longer. Dr Suway came out for a final walk around to make sure that I was ok. I live in Florida and I would fly in for next appointment. I left with a smile. I would definitely recommend this place to all. Give it a try.
I have been a patient of Dr.Suway for over 20 years and he is a exceptional dentist. He takes great care and professionalism in all his dental work and has never suggested a procedure that was not necessary for dental health. He cares about the comfort of his patients and his work is top notch. The office staff is also wonderful and everyone makes you feel at home. I highly recommend Dr. Suway"s office for excellent dental care.
