This story would have been far more inspirational if it was not clear that Dr. Suen apparently gave more time and care to treatment of the lady because of her youth. I know that UAMS medical records has had a check box on medical records to indicate VIP? yes or no. Discriminating against older or poorer patients is certainly immoral if not downright illegal.

Dr Suen was my husband's doctor when he needed surgery for melanoma. Dan was neither young nor a VIP and I can tell you unequivocally that those factors made no difference to Dr Suen. He is absolutely the most compassionate doctor I've ever known. Having talked to many of his other patients families while in the waiting room during Dan's surgery it was abundantly clear that this feeling was held by all.

Dr Suen is a super Dr to any patient he sees.
