I've seen Dr. Sisk for years and would hate to ever see another dentist. Dr. Sisk is always kind and focused on doing the right thing for the patient. I always feel like I'm in good hands, and feel like I'm going to be taken care of rather than judged.

Dr. Yau is a great orthopedic surgeon. Had hip replacement 4 weeks ago. I have no pain and walking great. He cares about his patients and will spend time necessary to explain procedures and answer questions. Couldn't be happier with outcome.
