"I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Bisson and the entire staff, both at the medical office and the surgical facility. They were professional, informative, friendly, and most importantly, they were able to repair my injury which other doctors had told me was impossible to do. I would highly recommend this great team, and I would like to thank them all for an entirely pleasant experience!"
Hats off to Dr. Bisson, fantastic job on my shoulder repair. Especially for the damage that was done. Therapy went excellent and I am back training again. It was a long six month rehab, but in the end the surgery and healing went better than expected. Thank you for everything. Your staff, from physician assistant to secretary, are top-notch and very professional.
You surgically treated me around 2005 for a distal bicep tendon tear. You did a miracle for me and I often think of you. I wish I could send you a photo of “the gun show” because here I am 10 years later and I’m doing GREAT because of you. I am blessed to know you. You do great work. I just thank you so much.
