It was excellent!! 5 star! I came to see him regarding a possible full hip replacement. I moved here from out of state and have already had the other hip replaced. He was patient, professional, kind and reassuring. He listened and took time and most of all, I actually got to see and talk to him instead of a “sidekick”. Sounds a bit weird maybe but I’m actually looking forward to the surgery and gettin back on my feet again

Dr. McKissick is great. My new knee is my fourth surgery with him. I can’t thank him enough for replacing parts and putting torn parts back together.

Not only has he done an incredible job on my torn rotator cuff but I hobbled in with what I though was a sprained ankle but he quickly found it was broken. No stone left unturned

Dr Mckissick examined my knee. I was having pain on the back side of my knee. After reviewing xrays and my knee he recommended a shot of steroids into the knee. It worked my knee feels much better. I can squat and bend my knee with out pain now. I have been very satisfied with Dr Mckissick.

Professional, friendly, patient, & easy to speak to about my health concerns. My shoulder surgery went well, all staff and physicians involved were wonderful. Currently doing physical therapy with TOA and couldn’t be happier with Megan and office staff. The facilities are clean, not overcrowded, and easy to get appointment times I need for my schedule.

Been his patient since 2008. He has replaced both knees (08 & 13). Repaired both rotator cuffs. Can't throw rockets from 3rd or shortstop as I used too. Dr. Mckissick has enabled me to continue to play softball and to do heavy work around my home even at the present age of 76.
