    had very good appointments with dr. sistrunk after 3 visits. he has recommended I see a surgeon and I will be putting my trust in the doctor that he has recommended for me to see.
    in Madison, MS |
    I was very skeptical to see Dr. Sistrunk with my 13 y.o daughter. Dr. Sistrunk not only erased our fears, answered all my questions ,but he also spoke to my daughter as the patient . Dr. Sistrunk was very professional and reassured my daughter he would help her feel better. I am so grateful for a wonderful pediatric referral from Dr. Jones and Dr.Sistrunk.

    We are very lucky to have a Mayo clinic graduate in our home state.
    My appointment with Dr. Sistrunk was a complete waste of time and money. I felt like he didn't take me seriously and was uninterested in what I had to say. I don't appreciate the way he belittled me and passed judgment on me for taking diet pills. He wanted to do nothing but attribute all of my symptoms to weight and a lack of exercise, which isn't even a real cause for many of my symptoms. He also ended the appointment making remarks about me taking speed like I was some sort of drug addict.
