Brought my 9 year old son in who was complaining of a hand injury that would not go away. Dr. Sessions immediately identified the problem and gave us several options on treatment. My son was very comfortable and his staff is A+. Highly recommend Dr. Sessions for hand or shoulder issues.

I saw Dr Sessions last year and I was treated for trigger finger. He was thorough without a whole bunch of extra stuff, which i appreciated. Now, having issues with my thumb, I am sad to hear that he has left Philly. I wish Louisiana was closer.

Hand is feeling great but now my other one is hurting and wanted him to take of it. Sorry to see that he's left Philadelphia. ...Read More
