I had a great experience with Dr. David Liss. He pulled out my ingrown toe nail within minutes without a problem.
Dr Liss was great However... and it may be because it was only a minor complaint but being asked by the checking in MA? (not sure what level this person was) what my BP and weight was a little odd to me? If that information is needed then my BP should have been taken and I should have been weighed.
He's a really great doctor , super kind to his patients and really helpful and definitely doesn't make you feel lame when you act like a big baby! The staff is also really lovely so it makes the experience feel so much better!

Excellent personable medical care. Dr. Liss takes the time to educate the patient on the injury and treatment required. I highly recommend this doctor.
He is a wonderful doctor!!!!!!!! He really makes you feel comfortable!!!! I highly recommend seeing him!!!!
I did an online appt; they had most of the paperwork. I was in a lot of pain and all options were discussed, because I had already been to see my regular doctor. The office staff is not super friendly, but they are efficient and I prefer that. X-ray was done right there and my toe/arthritis was diagnosed quickly. Because it is close to my home, and they could take me on the same day that I filled in the Zocdoc forms, this is one that worked very well!
Dr. Liss is a great doctor! Appreciate his attitude.
