I first met Dr. Murray Susser some years ago at an ACAM conference. I heard him lecture and speak with other physicians and was very impressed with his knowledge of integrative and traditional medicine and the way he blends the two. I later worked with him when I headed up an FDA study on the use of Injectable Growth Hormone in Anti-aging.

Being so impressed with him especially among the hundreds of physicians I have known, I chose him as my personal physician. He is thorough, caring, knowledgeable and always up on the most current thinking. You could not have a better physician than Dr. Murray Susser. That is why I travel across the country to seek his counsel.

I have known Dr. Susser for many years. During this time, he has treated me for several medical conditions. Most recently, while visiting Los Angeles,.I saw him for a sore throat and ensuing respiratory infection.

Dr. Susser’s approach to medical treatment is positive and straight forward. His diagnoses and recommendations for treatment are precise and clearly explained. I completely trust him with my medical needs as well as those of my family.

I strongly recommend Dr. Susser and his medical staff.

Sincere Regards,

Hello Doctor Susser, A while and not too long ago I wrote an article about Gods in white coats. In my experience with challenges through Lyme disease. It is nice to read a Doctor that is in it to help people rather than 8 to 5 big house nice car on the hill attitude. Although my article still stands for many white coats out there. I am glad we have one like you sharing and teaching which it the opposite of many “I am the Doctor here” attitudes that have allowed the Lyme and Cancer to progress in my opinion to where it is today. Thank you,

Rosie-VelaDr. Buz Susser has known me since I was 23 He is a True Genius & has actually SAVED MY LIFE quite a few times, 1 time when I’d been bitten by Black-Widow spider, after going to S.O.Hospital ER due to my arm being SO Swollen from the fangs + venom that it was about 10-20 times bigger than my other arm+Red Streaks covered it. All hospital ever did was make me breathe in paper bag+Prednisone pills-in24hrs, I felt SO poisoned that I was almost PARALYZED, so I went to see Dr. Susser. If the sun hit my arm or body at all, it felt like a hypodermic needle piercing my skin! When Dr. Susser saw me, diagnosis was that the spider venom had poisoned my blood=Sepsis; with about 24 hrs. left to live & he began giving me IV Antibiotics everyday for a week & that’s just 1 instance of how he saved my life! There are a few others that are quite serious how he saved My Life! I will tell more later, cuz, I’ve gotta go now. Just wanted to tell anyone who sees this that I LOVE this Dr.! He’s kind & SO Smart!

Murray R. Susser, MD is an amazing healer. I have gone to him whenever I had something I could not get a handle on. He is compassionate, smart and thinks outside the box. I have had the pleasure of knowing doctor Susser for 30 years. I am glad he came back to LA.

I remember my first encounter with him. He asked me something that other doctors did not, “What is going on in your life?” 30 years ago that was profound to me. With that question, we solved my panic attacks. Amazing what compassionate conversation can do, along with building up your immune system that gets torn down by stress of the unknown.

Dr. Susser is the absolute most insightful, creative and “right on” diagnostician. He saved and improved many, many lives.

His work in this area is progressive and cutting edge. I urge anyone struggling with either a Lyme diagnosis or an unsolved health situation to take advantage of Dr. Susser’s experience in diagnosis and treatment.

Dr. Murray Susser is a wonderful doctor. Dr. Susser successfully heals his patients in a holistic manner with diet, vitamins and natural supplements. He is committed to his patients’ overall long-term health and well-being. He is kind and caring.

Dr Murray Susser is the kind of MD you find once in a lifetime if you are lucky. I am a Clinical Nutritionist and I have worked with many Doctors (as colleagues over the past 20 years) and have now been to quite a few in the past 2 years as I had some health issues myself that no Docs could either diagnose correctly or help me with. I wound up having to go to Seattle to get some help.

Dr Susser was the ONLY Doctor out of 6 that I e-mailed and phoned who would speak to me and discuss me coming back to LA and continuing a very specialized health plan (both using traditional medications and nutrients, diet etc..) that I had developed over 6 months of treatment in Seattle with a Specialist.

Dr Susser has a vast amount of knowledge about infectious diseases, hormone balance, viruses, Lyme disease, natural healing and overall good health. He really listened to me as a patient and he immediately had some great ideas that I had never heard from my other Drs or read about myself (and I do a LOT of research). Dr Susser is very compassionate, very down to earth, and has a great sense of humor. He really cares about his patients. He is mentally sharper than many Drs I have met that are half his age – and have less than half his experience. He can even start an IV! How many Doctors have you seen do that?? If you need a great Doctor give Dr Susser a try. I am very happy to have found him.

Heather U BainesI have been a patient of Dr. Susser for 30 years now.
He has always treated me in a most ethical and professional manner.
His medical treatment of me over the years has been successful and I have recommended his services to friends.
He does not just hand out “pills”, as so many doctors do today, but works hard to find remedies suited to helping the patient.
With no compunction I would put my family in his care.
– Heather U Baines

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Dr. Susser. It was the first time in my life that I felt like I was in the presence of a doctor who actually LISTENED to my problems, symptoms, side effects and took the time to evaluate each option/cure. He is so wise, so genuine, and actually cares. He is AMAZING. I have told so many people about him.

We have gone to Dr. Murray Susser for fifteen years. What I like about him is he is an M.D. and he reads a lot and keeps up on research. He has given us advice that didn’t come out in the media until years later. For example, he quoted statistics that indicated a very poor outcome on a procedure my husband was about to have done. Three years later we read the same advice in the New York Times.

Dr Susser is a wonderful man, and amazing Doctor. He found things that were wrong with me which no other doctor could. He helped me with my Lyme. I flew to Scottsdale AZ from NY to see him. I wish he was closer. Don’t doubt Dr. Susser – make an appointment and let him help you.

Dr Susser,

Thank you so much for all the time you spent with H.____ during our last visit. You have such a fantastic way communicating with him and the way you explain and help him understand everything is truly amazing. He has so much trust and faith in you, which is so helpful with respect to his anxiety. You truly are an incredible doctor and I feel so blessed to have met you.



You have been, (perhaps unbeknownst to you) my internist and primary care physician. It has been thus far a remarkably successful collusion. I have always listened to though not always been able to need your counsel. At age 65 I take no medication other than supplements (some recommended others not) and suffer from no debilitating or life threatening ailments (although this may of course change in an instant). You are (believe the principal instigator of this state of affairs). Thank you.

You have been and will remain a wonderful doctor and a credit to your profession.


Dr. Susser,

Thank you for your diligent and compassionate care and for your amicable and efficient staff.

I want you to know that I take your advice seriously and have stayed completely with your program except for the one-day lapse with Biaxin. I’m back on target now with a ½ dose per your recommendation.

I am appreciative of your wisdom and hope that I will soon return to excellent health like I’ve had in the past.


Dear Dr. Susser,

Every day now for quite some time I write this letter in my mind to you…as I send you heart felt blessings and gratitude.

As you know, Dr. Susser, when I was a kid, I’d trained at the Olympic Training Camps for swimming, I enjoyed many sports from skiing (Black Diamond), dancing, horseback riding (jump competitions).. and in my adulthood I continued many of these interests albeit in a more modified form. I’d always been healthy, never an operation, and my weight was always moderate to my height (5.6” about 125lbs). Healthy diet of no red meat and fresh foods.

Then, things just started to change, little by little at first. At one point I gained 16 pounds in 3 days. Suddenly I am sleeping 20 hours a day, and joint pain started to get worse and worse. My ankles were swollen to the size of grapefruit and my hands an wrists were immobile as well.

… it was scary, depressing; and the search for answers was an ordeal and an odyssey that brought my husband and me to your door. We visited many doctors to find our way to you.

I’d been given everything from water pills to flower remedies and massage… and it was getting worse faster and faster.

We went to a Lymphedema Clinic for my husband to learn how to help wrap compression stockings on my swollen ankles and legs. I couldn’t walk without them by then.

The nurse said this didn’t look like the lymphdema though. She was used to treating Lymphedema from former cancer patients. Their lymphedema usually was asymmetrical. I was swollen on both sides…. and so our search continued for answers.

Other doctors followed and I was tested for everything from MS to TB… and reading doctors notes later all they agreed on was that “the cold swelling and joint pain was not a good sign.”

Every doctor’s initial visit cost many hundreds of dollars each. This was out of pocket (and I was no longer well enough to work).

By then I no longer had feeling in my fingers. When I slept at night I had to sleep on my back with my arms to my sides and my legs straight or the circulation would stop. I had to go from standard blankets to an electric blanket because regular blankets were so heavy that I couldn’t move in bed at al beneath them. Even under the light electric blanket I was too weak to roll over.

My eyes couldn’t hold a focus anymore; so I couldn’t read. I was relegated to ‘listening’ to TV. That was all I could do.

Every time I do the smallest things now… the things that I once took totally for granted, I am reminded that all that and more was virtually once over for me not long ago. I thought I would never be able to do those things again.

When we first met, I was no longer able to walk without assistance. We’d picked out a walker with a chair because I couldn’t stand anymore for more than a few minutes at a time.
