Thorough, even on a busy day. Personable and attentive. Knowledgeable and skilled. Good communication with my spouse after surgery. Conservative in choice of procedures, with good results. Office staff is great. Front office friendly, courteous and caring - very helpful. Back office staff was very friendly and welcoming. This Physician patient was pleased.

Dr Tissot explained my condition to me very well. He involved me in my care and allowed to me ask questions. His staff is great. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a urologist.
in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Tissot is a caring, compassionate man; I am always greeted by an out-stretched hand, firm handshake, and eye contact. He makes you feel comfortable and I liked him right away. I'm not always easy to deal with & at times have been starved for more information than I'm being given. I disobey his orders to stay off the internet, but he is forgiving. I sometimes feel Dr. Tissot is not really hearing what I'm trying to say, which is disconcerting. However, I glad he's on my side. Terrific doctor.

Dr. Tissot performed my surgery for a prolapse bladder and rectum and he did an excellent job. He is an awesome surgeon and I would recommend him highly.

He takes the time to listen to you. Urine test strips aren't accurate for me. Even though he looked through a microscope and could see no organisms, he listened to me and did a urine culture. Both times the cultures came back positive. So don't be shy about asking for a culture. I don't think those strips are very accurate. They are a lot cheaper than a culture. They get you in quickly when you need to be seen, I am an R.N. so this review is not based on a popularity contest but facts.

Excellent physician. Dr. Tissot is on top of his game. Personable, knowledgable and most of all confident. I had a sling placed under my urethra to correct urinary incontinence. Best decision and immediate results. Has already improved my quality of life 100%. As a nurse I have seen elderly ladies avoid drinking fluids because of urinary incontinence, so therefore they get urinary infections that easily lead to sepsis. If you realize you have a problem, get repaired.

Pleasant and efficient explained things well. Overall good experience.
in Franklin, TN |
Dr. TIssot has been very patient and kind, and when I was trying to decide on surgery or not, he gave me valuable advice that showed me he cared more about me as a patient than whether or not he just simply had an opportunity to operate. Even though I thought highly of him before that (I had been his patient for several years), I think of him even more highly now. I would recommend him to anyone. He is one of those docs helping to restore my faith in our health care system.

Dr. Tissot performed a TURP procedure on me in October of 2015. I was very pleased with our discussions and the operation result. His openness permitted me to be actively involved in my care and medical decisions. The professionalism of he and his staff helped me through this difficult period.
in Franklin, TN |
It was excellent. Dr. Tissot performed the TURP surgery on me. He was completely upfront with me and allowed me to be a part of the decisions regarding my health and well being. I am forever grateful as the surgery was a great success and gave me a greater quality of life. I feel fortunate to have him as my physician.
