Optometrist

Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin

Dr. Hoggatt grew up in the Milwaukee area and remembers playing on the Milwaukee County Grounds with her father, Dr. Elieser B. Suson, who was one of the original recruits of the first chairman of the Eye Institute. She graduated from medical school at the University of Wisconsin in 1990. She then spent two years in Charleston, SC doing her internship in internal medicine and a year of ocular pathology fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina. After completing her ophthalmology residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin in 1995, she joined her father and her brother, Dr. John Suson, in private practice in Wauwatosa and Glendale. Dr. Hoggatt considers it a privilege to continue serving the residents of Southeastern Wisconsin “back home” at the Eye Institute. As a comprehensive ophthalmologist, with a budding interest in medical missions, Dr. Hoggatt welcomes patients of all age groups with a variety of vision and eye problems. Dr. Hoggatt and her husband Scott, an engineer with WE Energies and co-owner of a VeloCity Cycling in Pewaukee, have four children together. When she is not caring for patients, Dr. Hoggatt enjoys cheering for her children at sporting and theater events, practicing taekwondo, hiking, and skiing.
