Scott Bissell, MD Reviews (275)

New Patient Visit

Professional atmosphere and staff. Pleasant interaction with doctor. He took time to explain everything and answer any questions.

Virtual Visit / Telemedicine

The virtual visit went well. Dr. Bissell was able to share XRAY information, I could understand him clearly, he took the time to answer all my questions. Still waiting for insurance authorization to proceed with treatment plan which is frustrating.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Good treat.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Bissell went over my MRI in great detail. We had discussed my injury prior and with all the information received I was able to make a confident decision on what the next step was. Dr. Bissell was very kind and understanding. He also treated me like a person, not just another surgery.

New Patient Visit

Dr. Bissell was very thorough, provided all the information I needed. Outlined all the options for treatment etc. going forward. He and all of all the staff were very courteous, answered all questions etc. [Single best thing is...] Finding out the exact cause of the pain, discomfort I was experiencing as well the active steps I can take to help manage the situation.

[Highly satisfied?] Yes. Dr. Bissell was thoughtful and caring in answering all my questions.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Front office staff was helpful and professional, as always. I appreciated the steps that were taken to promote social distancing. Dr. Bissell checked my progress, listened to my comments and concerns, and revised a treatment plan. My whole experience was perfect.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Bissell always provides the appropriate care needed. He spends time and doesn't just move you along.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Bissell explained the MRI & then gave me the best options.

New Patient Visit

I learned more in a 15 minute conversation with Dr. Bissell than I learned in 4 in person visits with an orthopedic physician at another practice. That physician may have been very knowledgeable (he certainly looked good on paper), but he NEVER answered my questions, and I am not uneducated (post graduate degree). Dr. Bissell read my medical records in advance, including x-rays and MRI results, he listened and he provided a LOT of helpful information, including potential treatments. Those were never discussed by my prior physician. All I ever heard from him was, I'd like to see you again in 4 weeks.

New Patient Visit

Great talk with the doctor, never felt rushed and got great service and advice.

Rotator Cuff Repair

Dr. Bissell is a kind and compassionate doctor. His assistant and PA are also great. I feel like they really listen to my concerns and address them.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Great assistance.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Have no complaints.

Virtual Visit / Telemedicine

Dr. Bissell is very smart and brings me to that next level of understanding of what is going on with me, and effectively treats me.

New Patient Visit
