I like Dr. Elisissy he listens to what I have to say and seems concerned about my condition.
in Hemet, CA |
Dr. Elsissy gained my confidence at our first meeting when he actually looked at the Xrays and gave me a comprehensive report on my condition. I had become accustomed to doctors simply reading the tech report for their information.
