Review for Dr. Dallas

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.

Hannah Jun 21 2020

Review for Dr. Sisk

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.

They are all about the money and not the patient! They try to talk down to you and will not see you if you don’t have money cash paid in full! This has been my experience after being dropped because I cancelled an appointment and was charged for it anyway.

Dr Dallas cared for my father some years ago, and truly went the extra mile, with a very difficult patient. His technical skills are superb. More importantly, he took the time to learn what made my father tick as a person. He demonstrated patience, and genuine caring for his patient and our family.
