      Dr. Sessoms has been my doctor for 10-15 years, and, even when she stopped taking insurance, I stayed with her. She is knowledgeable, spends a lot of time with each patient and my greatest fear is when she retires.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Sessoms' Care Philosophy

      My practice priorities center around obtaining the correct diagnosis for each patient and working with the patient to find the best treatment and the best result possible. Rheumatologic disease can be complex, and I enjoy solving the problems this complexity presents. Patients may come to me frightened and worried, with preformed ideas about their diagnosis and treatment. The ability to take the time to listen to and talk with each patient is one of the most important facets of treating rheumatologic disease. The Personal Physician Group practice model, with its emphasis on a slower, more personal style of medicine, allows me and my patients all the time we need to do the work we need to do.
