Review of Dr. Sisti

- in White Plains, NY |

I went to all of the top neurosurgeons in NYC to discuss removal of a meningioma on my optic nerve. None of them made me feel comfortable or exhibited the level of confidence that I needed to proceed with the surgery. I was terrified, until I met Dr. Michael Sisti. He gave me the comfort and confidence I needed to proceed. He clearly is tops in his field. Everything went exactly as he said it would. He is honest and caring and an extremely talented and knowledgeable neuro surgeon.

Review of Dr. Sisti

- in NY |

I was referred to Dr Sisti after being diagnosed with a large acoustic neuroma, When I first met him, I was a nervous wreck. Forty Five minutes later ,I left his office a totally different person.His explanation, demeanor and self assuring ways was refreshing. My surgery was an resounding success and went exactly as planned. Thank you Dr Sisti.

Review of Dr. Sisti

-Scarsdale, NY |

Dr. Sisti is a first rate, expert professional, who also understands he is dealing with human beings who are, by definition, experiencing high levels of stress and worry. He took great care of me before, during and after my surgery (which I only found out I would need a few days before I had it). His staff and office are terrific as well. I recommend him very, very highly and feel sincere gratitude for his excellent care.

Review of Dr. Sisti

- in Brooklyn, NY |

Dr. Sisti is a talented and highly experienced neurosurgeon who headed the team that performed my craniotomy to remove an acoustic neuroma. During my initial consultation with him, the time he spent explaining his own background, approaches to surgery, and possible scenarios for me was balanced by a warm, humane interest in me as a person and not just a patient. He is truly exemplary, and his colleagues clearly feel the same as his patients. My surgery was a resounding success.

Review of Dr. Sisti

- in Niskayuna, NY |

A wonderful doctor, in all ways! I am most grateful to Dr. Sisti and his Gamma Knife team for the treatment of my acoustic neuroma. My doctor in Albany, NY referred me to Dr. Sisti; I feel most fortunate to have received this referral and to have been under Dr. Sisti's care. Here is a doctor with exceptional expertise and skill, a profound respect for medical research (both pioneering and present day), a wonderfully warm, caring way with his patients, and a very kind, helpful staff.
