I came into Wake ER with stomach pains and what I thought was chest pain. I was diagnosed by Dr. J. Cisni with gall bladder issues and within 12 hrs. Dr. Biswas was able to get me into surgery and now I am feeling 100% better. He is a good doctor with a good disposition. He explained what he did in laymen's terms and I greatly appreciate what he did for me. During my post op follow-up I thanked him again and I wish him the very best.
