Dr Kissel was a god send for me, I was in excruciating pain from what I thought was back issues, when in fact it was my hips, he was very patient and understanding, replaced both of my hips and gave me my life back! I will forever be grateful for him and the freedom from pain I have now! I recommend Dr Kissel and staff for all your ortho needs.

I have been his patient for20years or more. He is brilliant, kind and compassionate. I have had a broken knee, hip replacement, a shoulder tear and two knee replacements. I highly recommend him and would never go to anyone else.

He may be a good surgeon but after 6 months I am still in a great deal of pain from a fractured femur. On our first office visit after the surgery he went into a rant about President Obama. Dr. Kissel also made things difficult by writing prescriptions that would only last a week at most. When trying to request a refill the only option was to leave a message and those calls were returned much later. The excuse for delay was that they were busy with patients. I guess I was not considered one.
