Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Brisson and his entire staff were kind, compassionate, and fully understanding of my problem. Dr. Brisson took a great deal of time explaining my condition and the options which were available to me. He answered all my questions to my satisfaction and assured me to feel free to contact his office in the event I had further concerns. This was my first visit to Dr. Brisson's office, and I left satisfied with my experience.
It was an interesting session..
Do not waste your time with this doctor! My first appointment was fine, except for the long wait time, but on my second appointment I didn't even actually see Dr. Brisson. I saw a nurse who read the results of my MRI and when I asked to see the actual doctor who I had made an appointment with 6 weeks ago, she said that he only sees patients on the first visit (!!). I replied that it was misleading because I had made an appointment to see an actual doctor and not a nurse and she said, "How else would he see 150 patients in a week?" I think this office must be running some kind of insurance scam - do NOT waste your time with this doctor.
Absolutely disappointed with this doctor and his staff. For four months, I have been chasing them for MRI results with no success. Unreturned phone calls, no suggestions on how to proceed to help with my condition. They have absolutely no interest in keeping me as a patient, which is unbelievable and quite sad - I am moving on and am disappointed in this recommended doctor.
Exceelent. Beautiful office. Very courteous staff. very well organized. Dr. Brisson was to the point and very very nice.
