in HOLLIS NEW YORK |
My name is Liza Khoshanoff and I was diagnosed with a huge tumor inside my brain... Dr. Sisti performed a 9 hour surgery and thanks to him I am 100% and the surgery went perfectly... I woke up & was able to see because he avoided the optic nerve and had no visible scar even though he opened my head for surgery. I felt so comfortable with him he is such a kind soul and so compassionate... He is the BEST brain surgeon.... hands down the BEST THE BEST BRAIN DOCTOR IN THE WORLD THANK YOU VERY MUC

This is not a doctor you want to care for you. Too self motivated.

I had a meningioma which was per Dr. Sisti, a regular tumor but big. He removed it without any shaving my head or any visible scar on my forhead. Thanks, Dr. Sisti!

I had a rare tumor and Dr. Sisti removed it along with Dr. Kaiser. I'm playing tennis and back to normal. They saved my life.
