My experience with finger surgery by Dr. Liss was the best I could have hoped for. He was thorough and most competent with a pleasant bedside manner. I can't even find the scar anymore! His staff were well-trained and pleasant. I definitely recommend him and wish more doctors were like him.

My experience with Dr. Liss was truly great, he operated on both my hands and had an outstanding bedside manor. My appointments were on time, and his assistant Kennis was also, great. I would recommend him with no hesitation to all.
