Dr Lising is excellent. Very detailed and compassionate. I highly recommend her. My husband was in for a consult this week, I have been a nurse 25+ years and worked with many physicians. I was very impressed by her knowledge and care.

Dr.Lising came to rescue in the emergency room. I've had DBR surgery and fell out of bed cutting my scalp close to the wires .Dr. Henderson said everything was OK.. ThisGARY was the first time I had ever seen Dr. Lising and I felt very confident and safe with her.I am 76 years old and I need that kind of response. She follow's up and is very thorough. I hope she will remain as me P.D. physician.
