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.

Patient Comments (3)
Austin, TX |
I have R.A. and went to see Dr. Sessoms to hear a second opinion on my diagnosis and treatment. I spent $600 and waited over an hour to first see her assistant. He wrote my medical history and notes on a paper towel. When the doctor final came to the room, I had to repeat everything I had just said several times. She told me to increase my dosage of methotrexate and add a biological drug that she pulled from her sample drawer. She had no idea what she was talking about. Steer clear.

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.
