Dr. Persons is a wonderful surgeon, I credit him with saving my finger in surgery. He has a great sense of humor and explains everything in detail of procedure and what to expect. His Physician's assistant, Jay is great, the whole staff beyond any and all of my expectations, both friendly and most professional. I highly recommend. The entire experience, the injury he had to fix, was the only downside, but thank God he was that good.
Suffolk, VA |
The staff seemed friendly and courteous, But Dr. Persons is in my opinion the worst doctor to talk to. He seems like he is not even listening to you when your telling him what is wrong. He is not thorough whatsoever. In general his bedside manners are just not there. I left the office both times very angry/disappointed and would not recommend this doctor to anyone.
