    Excellent! DR Sessions and his staff are very patient friendly. I experienced little or no wait time to see him. I required surgery for my case and he and his team were instrumental in keeping me informed before and after the surgery. Immediately following he briefed my wife on the successful outcome of everything. He is very personable, and his staff is commendable for their method of keeping the patients moving in the office. Without hesitation I am recommending DR Sessions to you.

    Carpal tunnel release surgery performed on both hands - within 1 calendar year. Both experiences were very positive: the procedures, the outcomes, the office staff, the surgery center & its staff, the efficiency of Dr. Sessions and his teams, the caring follow-up. Wish all medical experiences were like these two sessions with Dr. Sessions.

    Dr. Sessions is very caring, explains all procedures explicitly, and is one of a kind! He makes sure that any questions you may have are answered and that you understand the procedure. He went the extra mile to obtain a pathology report of my surgery while I was in the office post-op, and called me that evening, after speaking directly with the pathologist, to give me the results.

    Dr. Sessons is a great person to work with. I had surgery on both arms for carpal tunnel and trigger fingers. He was able to fix both areas and allow me to get back to work and fishing. He has taken care of me for close to 2 years now and I will continue to rely on him for any future needs. His support staff is top notch, from the front desk to his assistant Kristen (thanks for taking such good care of me during surgery) and the PT team, thanks for all your support in getting me back to normal.
