Office Visit / Follow-up

I was able to get an appt quickly. The receptionist was very pleasant and efficient. I was informed Dr. Bissell was running behind. I was asked if I would like to see his PA. She was lovely, very professional, personable, and reviewed my x-rays with me. I opted for a cortisone shot in my knee. She did this proficiently with minimum discomfort.

The staff are friendly and treat you as a person, not a widget.

Total Knee Replacement

Dr. Bissell is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. He clearly explained where I was in the recovery process and next steps. We reviewed the x-rays together and he explained where he had to drill to get the old screws out and do a bone graft. (A picture is worth a thousand words!) We have a clear plan of action- PT and partial weight bearing until graft heals- and I feel confident about the path to full recovery.

Dr. Bissell's thorough approach, attention to detail and ability to communicate in laymans terms creates a greater understanding of the issue and allows for a more informed decision making process.
