    I was referred to Dr. Sessions by the emergency room doctor because of the several severe dog bites I had suffered on my hands when a neighbor's dog attacked both my dog and me. He and his staff were wonderful. I would highly recommend Dr. Sessions and his staff to anyone needing their expertise.

    Previous negative comments have been removed. A yr. & a half later still having problems & now dealing with a new issue from having a procedure that was most likely unnecessary. Get a 2nd opinion & copy of his report before undergoing any procedure no matter how small. There was so much erroneous info in my report I believe he didn't listen, didn't care or mistook me for someone else. Wish I had thought to get the report first. A 2nd opinion is always a good idea.

    After dislocating shoulder I got in the next day to see Dr. Sessions. He walked through all the options with me before we decided to do surgery. I had a tear before and never recovered fully. Just after 2 months I feel stronger then it was before. I recommend Dr.Sessions to my family and friends as well! He is very easy to get a hold of with any questions or concerns.

    I recently had shoulder surgery performed by Dr. Sessions. After years of horrible shoulder pain I am finally experiencing relief and on the road to recovery! Dr. Sessions made me completely comfortable and I was confident going into surgery, and his good relationship with his therapy team made the whole process that much easier. i recommend this doctor all the time to friends and family!

    I found Dr. Sessions to be a very caring and compassionate physician. Besides his expert skill and expertise in his field, he has a way of putting one at ease and instilling the utmost confidence in his ability to treat your condition.

    Dr Sessions truly cares about his patients. He treats you as if you are the only patient in his office. Easily he could have his assistant or staff tend to the ordinary parts of a visit, but he examines you, treats you, and checks on you to make sure you are ok before leaving his office.

    He is the worst Doctor ever. Very unprofessional and rude. He was on his phone while i was trying to talk to him. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. One of my family member is still suffering from the unprofessional surgery he did on her. He does not even deserve to be called a Doctor.
