Dr. Jose Suarez is an amazing Neurology Stroke physician who works diligently to improve stroke care within the hospital at Baylor College of Medicine, the greater Houston area and beyond.

Dr. Suarez has been instrumental in leading the telestroke program at St Luke's where we provide stroke care to communities that would not have the ability for rapid assessment and treatment of stroke patients. When patients have required additional information and/or reassurance regarding their treatment plan, he always arranges to speak to them whether they are in the hospital or have been discharged home. Dr. Suarez is always professional and timely in providing information as requested. His impeccable leadership has elevated our stroke program and inspires all that work with him to offer the very best care to our patients and families.
