I was very impressed with his bedside manner to begin with, he replaced my right knee so pleased going back for the left to be done. He was honest and upfront about what to expect and my recovery.

One cannot find a better orthopedic surgeon and a personal and friendly bedside manner with extremely knowledgeable and professional. He’s the “guy next door” just happens to be an orthopedic surgeon.

I was left in the consult room for an hour. Dr Mckissick arrived with PA trainee. No apologies for delay, no exam of knee just constant pressure to do surgery. When I identified another area of pain no real interest. I will be looking for a replacement.
