New Patient Visit

I had the pleasure to meet Dr. Bissell prior to my appointment because my husband was already a patient of his. Dr. Bissell is very thorough and extremely pleasant. He also suggested the most conservative approach to my condition. His office is very efficient and friendly. Dr. Bissell showed me some PT I could do at home myself.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Bissel is the best doctor ever. He takes the time listen and explain everything. He always looks calm and ready to do anything he thinks it would make me feel better emotional and physically. I am glad I found him. Thanks to him I am back to work. I feel very lucky for finding him.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Bissell took the time to listen to my symptoms, prior efforts to resolve problems and concerns. He did not make me feel rushed. He took the time to discuss possible options for treatment.

Rotator Cuff Repair

I was seen very close to my appointment time. Taylor, the PA-C, went over details of my impending surgery. I was fitted for my brace. Then Taylor said Felicia would come in for my paperwork. But then she came back to say Dr. Bissell wanted to come in and speak with me. He came in and I bet we spent another 10 minutes going over in more detail what he was going to do, all the possible surgery scenarios once he got into my shoulder and what the recovery time would be for each of them. I really appreciated the time he took. I have an even better idea of what to expect.
