Chicago, IL |
I was referred to him for neuromas and he said I should have bunion surgery. After he assured me that I'd only have one cast and one month on a crutch, I ended up with the most PAINFUL surgery of my life, NO meds, and he didn't answer his page. I ended up with a with a shortened 2nd toe, CRPS, and can not walk. Have been bed- ridden for almost 7 yrs thanks to him. Went thru Physical therapy, nerve blocks, 20 doctors, seizures, complete hell. He needs to lose his license. I cry every day

Dr. Sisson performed surgery on Morton's neuroma on both feet at same time and did two excisions on right foot which left two toes numb. When pain returned I went to a doctor at Rush who could not believe that Sisson did that. He is really bad.

I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle. I had a very,very complicated fracture. Dr. Sissone was the attending surgeon in the emergency operating room. I feel like I have been in very good hands. I had to be in the hospital for six days, and he visited every single day. One day he did not arrive till after nine at night because he was so busy, and he aplogized. I feel very grateful to have met him, and is one of the bright spots in a very difficult time for me.

My experience with this Dr AWFUL! He has a way of making you feel like you are wasting his time. I went to see him because I been having foot pain. On my last visit he was so rude. This man has no compassion at all. He asked me if I had a boot to stabilize my foot - told him yes but Velcro worn out. He told me to tape it - yes he did say tape it! Said a new one would be waste of money. He doesn't remember what he's told you on previous visits. He was no help. My advice to you find different Dr!

He was almost caustic, and discourteous. He behaved as though I was a waste of his precious time. I was barely able to walk , and stated my foot was affecting my gait so much I was having knee pain, hip pain and back pain. His response was that happens in a tone so lacking in interest and care that I determined it was not worth my while to come back and see him in a few years when the injury has deteriorated enough to have surgery.

Chicago, IL |
Absolutely no bedside manner. Indifferent. Took a long time to diagnose problem. Not helpful in discussing ways to deal with the problem. Learned more online.
