I did like Kami Taylor who had taken care of my needs and my last visit she was gone. The office staff is by no means very friendly and with Kami gone not sure what to do about returning. Dr. Bissell is just not very personal when I have seen him and very blunt. I had decided to continue as long as Kami was there, she treated me as a person not just a patient, the office manager wasn't very impressionable either. I wish I didn't need a Dr. for help with the pain. Michael Lafayette used to take care of me for 20 years, about, but he retired. I can't give this office a high number I'm sure they know what their doing but they sure could do some work on reaching their patients personal/emotional needs as well as their medical needs. Hard enough to deal with pain, real pain. I understand the pressure this field is under and they need to be careful maybe if I go back I will try and talk to the Dr. about how I feel. I give up on the office. Our society is moving away from kindness, compassionate, etc. But if you don't see it in your Dr. the meds for pain and the treatment you get is almost mechanical, even though needed.
Dr Bissell now has an NP working with him. She is very good a dn listens to what you have to say. First few times I saw him I thought he was a little strange but the last few times he as been attentive. Seems to really care. Maybe having the NP around has relieved some of his stress. They always do a drug screen. Was accused of using an illegal drug was told the test could be wrong. Sure enough it was wrong. Be careful about going to the ER or having surgery with another provider for some reason. You must inform them as soon as you can. They are treating your pain and need to know. Staff is good for the most part till it comes to insurance. Tricare now has a policy where you need to have your PCM refer you back to specialists like every 6 months or so. And if they request procedures Tricare may deny. Be on top of this because the off staff is not. They won't even call to let you know. Make sure long before you are seen that you do have an authorization. If not, contact your PCM to refer you back.
