Great doctor and great staff

I've been a patient of Dr. Bissell's for several years now, and he's treated my knees and right shoulder. Among the things I appreciate about him is that he does not over prescribe. He avoids surgery, preferring to the least invasive treatment available.

Beware!

I injured myself at work four months ago. I finally had an MRI done, got the report, and was referred to Dr. Bissell. If you are a workman's comp case, do NOT see him. I have exhibited symptoms of herniated discs since the beginning. The MRI report stated I had 2 herniated discs and a disc protrusion, and he said there was NOTHING WRONG with my c-spine. I've been taking Soma and Vicodin because I have spasms, get migraines, and am in a lot of pain most days. He took me off BOTH. In his words "Muscle relaxers don't work" and he doesn't prescribe narcotics for "these sorts of things". He also recommended I have a kidney function test because I was taking medication regularly on a regular basis-and he should have said LIVER. He is an idiot, he's not friendly, and is another workman's comp sucker. Needless to say I am getting a second opinion with a doctor that I trust.
