Sussin has been living in the Hudson Valley for 53 years and has been involved in tennis for 36 of them. The Syracuse University graduate is a practicing Chiropractor.
His practice, which is located in both Rhinebeck and Poughkeepsie, specializes in sports chiropractic injuries and has been a fixture in the area since 1980.
