Very pleased with Dr. Liss - also with support staff - excellent results with a badly broken wrist!
in Douglassville, PA |
Dr. Liss was very responsive and compassionate about the issue I was having with my elbow. After surgery I am free of the pain I had experienced for many years. I have recommended him to my friends and will recommend him again when the opportunity presents itself.
Philadelphia, PA |
I am very pleased with the care I have received. Dr. Liss and his team have been great and made me feel at ease throughout my entire treatment. I would recommend them without hesitation.
Dr Liss did not read my MRI and told my he could not find anything wrong with my hand . It had obvious signs of trauma .i totally felt dismissed . The MRI clearly said Intersection syndrome . After I told Dr Liss I was upset he said he was treating me for this all along. This simply is not true. I since then have moved on and found another Dr who is treating me correctly . So disappointed and a wast of 3 office visits .
Dear Patient, We would love to talk with you directly to gather more detail. If interested, please contact us at 267-339-3689. Sincerely, Rothman Institute
Philadelphia, PA |
I appreciated the fact that Dr. Kiss took the time to explain my procedure and tests. I was unsure if I actually needed the carpal tunnel surgery but he assured me that I did and what to expect. I couldn't be happier with the outcome!
