Dr. Bissell did my gallbladder surgery. He is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the procedure as well as what to expect following surgery. 2 weeks post-op and I feel great! He also has a fantastic sense of humor. I highly recommend Dr. Bissell.

Dr. Bissell did excellent work on my inguinal hernia repair. He took the time to explain the procedure and to tell me what a reasonable recovery time would be. I highly recommend Dr. Bissell.

Knowledgeable, and an effective communicator. Dr. Bissell is a surgeon I very highly recommend. My recent hernia procedure went exactly as I had hoped for, and Dr. Bissell's excellent work and care is the reason.
