      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
