    I find Dr. Dissick very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She has a grea understanding of RA and how it impacts my life. I would recommend Dr. Dissick to anyone who believes they might have RA or sime other type on rheumatology.

    I have been seeing Dr. Dissick for the past 9 months and am very pleased. I have been impressed by her knowledge and her willingness to discuss my health issues for however long I need. Communication with me by staff members after appointments is also excellent. When I arrive for an appointment, I rarely need to wait for more than 5-10 minutes to see her. I really do not understand some of the other comments made. Dr. Dissick is excellent.

    Dr. Dissick is a very unpleasant women, dealing with her is like pulling teeth. She wont let you get a word in, always has a nasty attitude back. Very unprofessional and unpleasant. Everyone beware!!!

    wait time in waiting room & exam room w/o explanation horrible, was only one there, when a new patient comes in they are vulnerable and nervous, patience and understanding of that needs to be learned, time together was rushed and when I had a question or misunderstood something she was condensing and got snippy when results came in took 2 wks waiting for her to sign off, asst. called with results so I was unable to ask ?'s or what next step was, will not be back, no bedside manor whatsoever

    Seeing Dr.Dissick for 7 months. Brilliant, compassionate competent professional. Prevented me from being disabled by RA.
    in Forest Hills, NY |
    After consultation, I had to practically beg Dr. Dissick her for an MRI, after receiving results, I tried speaking to her, but she never got on the phone to speak to me. Instead she asked one of the receptionist to refer me to Pain management, without explaining all possible options available to me. This is very unprofessional, I had seen another rheumatologist 2year ago, and have a very positive response from him. Her staff was very courteous and helpful.
