Office Visit / Follow-up

The fact that Dr. Scott Bissell is open to working with other doctors and Physical therapy to figure out the issue. He is sensitive to the issue.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Bissell has been taking care of my OA knees for >10 years now. I have been very pleased with the care I have received. Dr. Bissell gives me a generous time to ask questions and explains his philosophies of care needs with great clarity, always considering my views and ideas. I am thankful to him that my knees continue functioning fairly well. I have been able to postpone my total knee surgery this far and hopefully for many years to come.

Dr. Bissell always explains the present situation to me in terms that I fully understand. Not to mention what a terrific surgeon he is because of prior surgery I had with him. Dr Bissell explained the next step I should follow in the process of treating my injury.

Rotator Cuff Repair

Dr. Bissell spent a good deal of time preparing us for my upcoming surgery, answering all our questions.

Treatment / Procedure

Pain relief! Dr Bissell's explanation of condition. Most of the paperwork had been mailed to me so there weren't reams of forms to fill out prior to being seen. Dr. Bissell had previously cared for me for an injury so I felt comfortable and confident seeing him again. I very much appreciate that he has an assistant entering the details of the visit into the computer so I feel that he is fully attending to my issue and concerns.
