Dr. Sisk was extremely friendly, listened when I was speaking, and took time to explain the mechanics behind his diagnosis.
Dr Sisk is always helpful in helping me with my knee pain always offering new solutions with out having to get surgery. also helping me get on track to getting healthier and exercising more. he's a great doctor to see
The medical assistant, fellow and the doctor were exceptional. They were easy to talk to and listened to what you had to say and were very caring and helpful with follow-up care. Would recommend Dr. Siska.
Dr. Sisk is a kind, patient & understanding physician. I have recommended him to several friends.
Dr Sisk was great during the visit.
This is one of the friendliest clinics I have ever been to. The front desk staff is very courteous and everyone I encountered was extremely pleasant. I have been there 3 times and everyone always displays a happy demeanor.
Dr. Sisk is a very professional and excellent doctor!
Top professional - an asset to UPMC. Listened carefully, explained my options, and helped me plan a course for the management and treatment of my knee pain.
Dr. Sisk and his entire team are wonderful! I have had appointments in the past at the Sports Medicine facility. This was my first time at the Kaufman Building. I have to say I was very impressed at how smoothly everything was run and how kind and friendly all of the staff were - from the receptionists, to the x-ray technicians, doctors and nurses - everyone was just lovely. I will definitely return to this location and this provider for future care.
He is very good at what he does and I have already referred my husband to see him and my husband really liked him also.
Dr. Sisk is wonderful, but the time constraints placed on his by UPMC are very poor. UPMC causes doctors to visit patients like they are going through a revolving door. This is not Dr. Sisk. Sports Center Medicine is one of the worst; I was fortunate to get Dr. Sisk. I would rather wait an extra 10 minutes, but have the doctor LISTEN INTENTLY. You people promote $$$ rather than patient care.
Everyone on the staff I came in content with was friendly, courteous, efficient and helpful.
very understanding and knowledgeable
I called for an appointment on Monday, saw Dr. Sisk on the next day and was very impressed with his Resident and Nurse. Your reputation is excellent and your services exceeded my expectations. I knew at once it was the right place to go. Thank you....
UPMC has perfected a smooth system for handling patients quickly and sensitively.
Dr. Sisk is a kind and compassionate provider. Is very attentive to your needs and thorough and develops a plan and communicates plan. Provides education while in the visit as well. You never feel like he is rushing.
I think Dr. Sisk and his staff are excellent they work together like a well oiled machine. constantly moving, but not so mechanical that patient care suffers. Dr. Sisk and the Sports Medicine Facility on the South side rather its the Doctor's office staff or the Physical Therapy Team, It is always a pleasant experience, no waiting I am in and out back to work and feeling better. I appreciate all they do.
Dr Sisk and the staff he worked with were the best I have had so far
The visit was very quick: x-rays, viewed results, strength tests and a recommendation for physical therapy. I don't believe a root cause issue was identified and I will probably have to return for further diagnosis and treatment.
Tom Sick is terrific. I have recommended him.
All aspects of my visit were excellently handled.
This was my first appt./visit with Dr. Sisk. He is very good at what he does. He's a well rounded professional; personable, respectful, smart and considerate.
helpful, patient, friendly
My appointment was supposed to be at 10:50am, got checked in quickly, then was taken into a waiting room, it took 50 MINUTES for the doctor to finally come see me. I was basically able to take a solid nap that whole time. I ended up being late to my job when I shouldn't have been. Furthermore, when he did come, he literally spoke to me for only 3 minutes. I get it was a check-up about my ankle but that was still short and I felt like he breezed through questions without really showing much concern.
every one were professional and friendly,
Dr Sisk was very kind, knowledgeable and on target with my diagnosis and treatment. He was thorough regarding the explanation of my issues, treatment and prognosis.
Very good and efficient. Straightforward! Excellent "bedside manner" and sense of humor. Need more doctors like this.
This office is well run, organized and staff is very friendly, and concerned. They are very good at letting you know what is happening and where you should go.
Facility is very easy to get to. There is adequate parking there and from registering when arriving at appointment through to x-ray and then to a physician is a very smooth process.
Dr. Sisk put me at ease and made me feel much better about my issues.
Absolutely excellent MD and staff. Cannot say enough about how he has worked to help me with multiple problems.
Dr. Sisk is always friendly, welcoming, and tolerant of athletes who don't like to be told that they can't continue to run. His sense of humor is always appreciated!
Dr. Sisk was very knowledgeable and thorough in examining my condition. He has a nice bedside manner and was easy to converse with. I also like how he provided me with several options for treatment.
Dr. Sisk outlined the options I have for my knee and hip arthritic issues and potential improvements. Limitations of options were related to UPMC health insurance policy.
Dr. Sisk is excellent. I have been to him several times and he has always cured my problem. He is very thorough and explains things on my level. I have recommended him to several people.
Doctors and staff were very attentive to my care i felt comfortable
Dr. Sisk was very personable and relatable. Kept our concerns in mind and never used "doctor talk" . Was very informative and provided easily understandable information.
Dr. Sisk is the best. I have recommended him to family, friends and co workers...so much so I should get finders fees. He certainly helped me after listening to my concerns and needs. He is a great doctor
I was well taken care of by all of the staff and doctor sisk
THis provider is consistently excellant
He went above and beyond to lead us in the direction needed.
I was in pain and I was given a very prompt appointment. I was treated very well ,thoroughly and effectively. Presently, I am in much less pain.
Very good initial experience with this provider and his staff. Have already recommended him to several family members.
Dr. Sisk and his staff at the UPMC Sports Medicine have been great. Always very informative, fast service and helpful with my aftercare i.e.: exercises. Even the Shuttle Drivers were kind and helpful. I am a UPMC employee and the Kindness I received and without them knowing that makes me proud to work for UPMC!
Nurse was very friendly, doctor very helpful.
the experience I had at my doctors couldn't have been better
Dr. Sisk has always been willing to discuss treatments available, which he believes would be in my best interest, and willing to change plan of treatment when the treatment wasn't working as planned. He is very knowledgable about current practices & procedures in his field and provides quality care with a degree of humor that helps to lighten the load. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so in the future.
entire staff was very courteous
I like that he told me that the swelling in my ankle wasn't me being fat but a different condition and referred me to a doctor to investigate the issue.
I've seen many Orthopaedic surgeons over the past 45 years and I can honestly say that Dr. Sisk has shown more compassion and concern than any of them. I'm so glad that my wife recommended him to me. I don't think many people enjoy visiting their doctors for injections, but it's actually a very pleasant experience to see Dr. Sisk.
my waiting room time was a little lengthy, however, the Dr's explanation was satisfactory.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Sisk. He is an amazing physician and wonderful care taker. I am very fortunate. Although I do not like having injuries, it is always nice to know Dr. Sisk will be able to help me and make it better!
It is always a good experience with this provider.
I love Dr Sisk and his staff. His staff is always pleasant and understanding. Dr Sisk is very knowlegable and always takes the time to listen. He gives the best advice and if hes not sure about something he will research and get back to you.
excellent and timely. competent.
Overall great experience. Very efficient.
This was one of the best office visit experiences I have ever had. All the staff were kind and helpful. Dr Sisk is the best!
Dr Sisk was a referral, really appreciated his concern and the treatment we tried. He has a wonderful personality that puts you at ease. He has referred me to Dr Donaldson.
Very happy with this doctor and his staff
Dr. Thomas Sisk is an excellent physician and my daughter and I appreciated how he talked so she could understand what he was saying. He does not make feel rushed and just like another patient. Dr. Sisk also makes sure he finds out what the problem and then takes a course of action to treat it. We will continue to recommend to Dr. Thomas Sisk.
I felt listened to. My first visit to an ortho for this issue, I felt dismissed which is why I picked a new doctor. Doctor Sisk was very caring and thorough. He pulled up a diagram of the muscle, showed me what scar tissue felt like, and made sure all of my concerns were covered.
This was my first time being seen ar the Sports Medicine Center and first appointment with Dr Zisk. I was veey pleased with the care I received and with the promptness of their timeframe regarding not having to wait. I would highly recommend this facility and physician to my friends and family members.
Had a great experience.
The entire office experience was efficient yet took more than enough care of my concerns and treated me as an individual
Dr Sisk was excellent with my child. He explained everything to him very well, pointed out all the bones and growth plates, etc. that were visible on the xray, and really took his time answering our questions and concerns. I would recommend him to anyone.
i was very impressed with the concern and care given me. This Dr. went above and beyond my best expectations to really listen and address my concerns in a speedy manner. Thank you, thank you!
Ronnie is one of the nicest MA's I have ever met!
Dr. Sisk was very kind and attentive and helped me understand my problem.
too long of a wait to see the doctor
My care was forgotten for a while. However, my complaint was handled in an excellent and compassionate manner by him, when I saw Dr. Sisk.
I would rate Dr. Sisk a 20 on a scale of 1-10. He was respectful, caring, listened, provided explanations and I had complete confidence in him for just meeting him for the first time. I cannot express my thanks for his patience and understanding.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Sisk and he is just great! He explained my injury in great detail, as well as treatment plan, physical restrictions/allowances, and projected recovery time. He understands my desire to remain active and provided several allowable exercises/activities.
Dr. Sisk continues to be a knowledgeable doctor who works to get to know me as a person in order to better address my injuries. His respectful and positive demeanor always make me feel welcome and valued. I am lucky to have found a doctor who is invested in treating their patients.
I had to wait over 45 minutes because earlier patients arrived late. Dr apologized.
I have had two appointment and both times I waited an hour over my appointment time to be seen.
I walk today without a cane because this provider was determined to provide competent care for a knee injury The new nurse AIMEE is very professional and unusually proficient in getting an MRI for me - same day
waited too long. but he apologized
I waited for over an hour to get called. The front desk said the doctor had an emergency procedure. I think they forgot about me. When I finally saw the doctor he said he thought that I didn't show up. If it wasn't for the doctor being so nice I probably would have found a different provider.
Dr Sisk is my go to guy!
The xray technician made me feel at ease, she was very easy-going. Dr. Sisk was excellent, he seemed to have real concern for the problem I was being seen for. Dr. Sisk viewed my x-rays With me so I had a better understanding of what my injuries were. EXCELLENT CARE!!!
I trust Dr. Sisk completely. I was so happy to find him as a doctor for the issues I have with my knee.
First time seeing Dr. Sisk. He was friendly and put me at ease. He was very caring.
My provider is my first choice for orthopedic care.
Dr Sisk is a wonderful doctor. He is knowlegable and skilled in his craft. He is attentive to your concerns and guves the best possible solution for his patients. I am so grateful to have a doctor like him.
He is a great doctor--takes good care of my knees and is always cheerful.
Dr. Sisk is the best.
Dr. Sisk was extremely curteous, caring and took grat time to explain my injury and options and tried to see things from my point of view.
Dr. Sisk is always very kind, explains everything and answers all questions, and eliminated my pain with a steroid injection which I did not even feel when he did the injection. I would highly recommend him to others (and have) for all orthopedic pain issues.
Dr Sisk always goes above and beyond in my care
My experience with Dr. Sisk has always been a very professional. He has always shown patience compassion at every visit.
I had a very acute problem and it was handled in a very professional, expedient and caring way by all the staff members and especially Dr. Sisk.
I thought the visit answered my acute needs but I had to ask a couple of follow-up questions to make sure I felt comfortable leaving the visit. I wish the provider would of took more time to help give me advice on their own without having to ask follow-up questions. I thought the provider was very personable and friendly just wish I had been given more information.
very kind thorough and knowledgeable
Dr. Thomas Sisk was excellent with my daughter and understood the concern I had for my daughter. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
took more X-rays to be more certain on my problem with my knee
Dr Sisk is an excellent physician delivering individualized care !
I really respect and appreciate Dr. Sisk. He is very good, relates well to patients, and has a good sense of humor which is important to me. I have been his patient for almost 10 years and I will continue to see him when needed. Highly recommended!
Dr Sisk is awesome. His mannerism, concern for my injury, interactions with my husband and I were outstanding. He was very personable. I'm really glad I checked the doctor ratings on him. The previous patients comments about him were spot on.
Highly recommend Dr. Sisk. This is my second time using him for treatment/diagnosis of an injury. Came to him for 2nd opinion this time and he was extremely capable and helpful. Additional testing was ordered enabling me to have a deeper understanding of my injury than was previously diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon. As always, he's a wonderful listener and obviously very dedicated to his profession. Unlike most other doctors he schedules a follow-up visit to completely go over MRIs, etc. Wish there were more doctors of his nature out there!
Dr. Sisk is a very good, respectable doctor and I am glad that I am receiving his care.
Visit felt a little rushed, but I think we hit all the major points. Would have liked more information on how the injury is acquired and how to avoid reinjury, but I can ask the physical therapist or ask again at the follow-up visit. I liked that he pulled up Google images to show me what's going on with my arm.
Already referred friends to Dr. Sisk.
Dr Sisk was very positive and helpful. Great bedside manner! Great at explaining my options for tx.
Dr. Sisk is always so kind and knowledgable about my care. He is a wonderful physician!
Just very personable and helpful and willing to explain everything and make you feel like your care is of his utmost concern.
It's hard to answer some of these questions. I really didn't have nurse care because I was at sports med. No one called me about my xrays because Sisk had them right away at the appointment. Sisk is a fantastic ortho...I recommend him to everyone!
very good Dr Siskis a great orthopedic doctor and very helpful
Dr. Sisk always takes the time to listen to my knee problems. He gives advice on non-medical options, like continuing with my PT exercises, as well as options to help with my swelling and pain. He is always cheerful, thoughtful, and attentive to his patients. He is a good model of what any physician should aspire to when providing care for patients.
Dr. Sisk is a very nice doctor that had concern for my problem I would recommend him to anyone. Sorry to say that at the end of June , the contract with Highmark and UPMC will expire so I will have to go to someone on Highmark's list.
We really liked Dr Sisk and the PT my daughter is seeing for her condition.
I have seen a lot of Doctors and This experience with Dr. Sisk and His staff at Sports Medicine made my life easier, not only did they advised me on how to get to the location from work. They setup my appointments around work which was greatly appreciated. Also any and all paperwork I need for work was completed and sent back to me in a timely manner.
All of my experiences were good.
I would recommend Dr. Sisk to anyone I know who had an orthopedic problem. I even took my own mother to see him several years ago and he completely took care of here problem.
Dr. Sisk and his assistant were terrific. This was the first time I have seen him and I have recommended my wife schedule an appointment with Dr. Sisk and she has. Explained everything thoroughly prior to, during and after treatment. The knee pain is gone for now.
DOCTOR was great caring took his time ,and everything he did ,told me ,great personality I definitely we recommend him 2 family and friends just a great doctor
All of the YES answers are why I just LOVE UPMC!
Dr Sisk and the whole staff were excellent in providing concern and addressing my problem.
I felt rushed out of the appointment.
Dr Sisk is an excellent doctor ... but he is always rushed and often speaks quickly, so it can be challenging to understand everything.
Dr. Sisk is very kind and sensitive with my problem. I really felt that I was a patient talking to my doctor who wants to take care of my health in the best possible way.
Great Staff, and Dr. Sisk and Dr. Donaldson are awesome.
My provider Dr. Sisk is consistently, respectful, understanding and considerate.
Dr. Sisk is the best, he takes great care of my wife and I Knees, he also helps us get seen by other doctors faster than if we were to try on our own. In November I asked him for help getting me seen for a neck pain and found out I needed surgery and he got me in to see the best and had much needed surgery by mid December. I will be forever grateful to him for the above and beyond care that he gives my wife and I, he is never more than a phone call away.
all pretty good
Great doctor happy to have found him to help with my current needs
I have been a patient of Dr Sisk for many years, he is effcient and kind. I reccommend him to many people, I even took my Mother and my Son to him
Dr. Sisk is wonderful and the staff at the Kaufmann building are courteous, friendly and very efficient.
Very nice people
Both Dr. Sisk and Debbie the xray tech. were wonderful.
Dr. Sisk is an excellent Sport Medicine Physician. I would highly recommend him. I think the title sports medicine can be misleading to some folks since he also treats non sports related injuries such as fractures & arthritis. He takes the time to review and explain the x-rays to his patients as well as the pros/ cons of treatment options. He involves the patient in their treatment options and allows time for them to explain their concerns and answers their questions.
I just love Dr. Sisk. Nicest man ever.
Dr Sisk. Is such a great guy warm personal a nd down to earth
Dr. Sisk was honest with my son regarding my son's need to follow the treatment plan to expedite his recovery and healing.
Was able to get me my mri on the same day since I was working the next two. Very considerate!
Dr Sisk was excellent . Awesome person
Dr. Sisk always spends enough time and answers questions adequately. He is my favorite physician.
Dr. Sisk is an excellent doctor with an outstanding bed side manner. He's friendly, he shakes your hand, he's personable, courteous, explains everything, listens well and provides thorough information and treatment options. All doctors should be like him.
Dr. Sisk has been very professional and understanding as well as very knowledgable, rather than using old info he had gathered through past visits he chose to gather new info and check on how my right knee has looked after not seeing him for a year. He is one of the best ortho doctors I have had the privilege of being able to see me and not treat me as some number.
Great provider. This was my first visit and I was very impressed with the professionalism of the Dr and team.
Dr. Sisk is very knowledgeable and explains his care very carefully and always answers all questions and concerns with respect in a good natured manner.
I been seeing Dr. Sisk For 8 years. I have had nothing but good things to say about him.
Great service. Received thorough exam and explanation of x-ray results.
I have been going to Dr. Sisk for several years. I am a Sports Performance coach and a former semi-professional athlete. I have lots of friends and clients that are also athletes. I have referred over 8 clients to Dr. Sisk for Orthopedic care. He his the best Orthopedic doctor that I have ever gone to in over 40 years of Orthopedic injuries.
I don't have anything bad to say about Dr. Sisk. Dr. Sisk is very personable, straight 2 the point, great bedside manner.
The doc was great and everyone associated with my care were excellent.
Excellent care, very present in listening to my concerns and reviewing the xrays. He started with a top down approach, giving me the overall picture and then sorta taking me on a journey to understand my issue. Just great demeanor and knows his stuff so well he can break it down into manageable pieces.
Very nice & caring
I always appreciate Dr. Sisk. He is my go to person.
I was very impressed with the service at this office, because it told me exactly what I needed to know about my mysterious, years-long knee pain. Taking x-rays went smoothly, and it's smart that they're part of routine procedure. Then Dr. Sisk was able to detect a very small abnormality in my painful knee that I'm not sure a less trained doctor would even have seen. His diagnosis made sense and matched my experience, and he gave me a prescription for the long-term physical therapy I need, which will hopefully solve the problem.
Impressed with his ability to make eye contact, listen, not talk down to me, and provide a course of treatment.
Thomas Sisk was awesome.
Dr. Sisk is a model for how a physician should practice medicine. He knows what he is doing, knows how to explain issues to patients, cares about patient outcomes, and offers options for treatment (with the pros and cons)
Dr. Sisk is simply amazing. He is one of the best we have ever had.
excellent visit. Doctor clearly explained my issue and the treatment needed.
Always considerate and truly interested. Always listens.
My doctor was very good in all the questions my wife and I had. He told what he wanted to do for my well being, and he told us what he would have to do if the first treatment did not help in the way he wanted for me, then he told us what next treatment would be.
Care. Providers really took time to understand and evaluate the problem. Care provider was able to see me before my scheduled time.
Everyone was very attentive and considerate of my time and needs.
Have used Dr. Sisk in the past for my Knee problems. I have total confidence in him. He has been very professional, friendly,courteous, and helpful everytime I go to him.
Dr. Sisk was very kind, helpful, understanding, polite, and respectful. I highly recommend him.
Did a good job explaining everything
tom sisk very good
Great personality, really listened, felt he provided appropriate options
Dr. Sisk listened to concerns about all possible symptoms and even did additional scans to look at all possibilities
Dr. Sisk is always caring and understanding.
Dr. Sisk is very kind, sensitive to my needs and very thorough. I would highly recommend him to others.
Care Team was great...It was an early morning appointment and in particular the receptionist at the front desk was wonderfully kind, cordial and understanding of my only being partially awake :)
I was extremely impressed with the receptionist, Brenda, at check in. She could not have been kinder. As this was my first time in the office, she introduced herself to me and was very friendly. I also had a resident, James, see me prior to Dr. Sisk and he was great. James was thorough, personable, and understanding. Dr. Sisk was very impressive with his bedside manner with me, as well as his resident. It was clear to me that he is an excellent instructor with residents and was truly invested in his learning. As Dr. Sisk explained the injury to my foot, he used visuals and showed me the difference between the the good and bad foot, so I could truly understand the injury. Since my visit yesterday morning, I have already shared my experience with at least 10 others. Thank you!
Dr. Sisk recalled previous times that I'd met with him, and was aware of my prior orthopedic issues, general interest in physical activities, and desire to rehab quickly and effectively. He didn't rush his exam, but didn't prolong things unnecessarily.
I won't go to any other provider about my orthopedic conditions because I feel that Sisk is the best orthopod i've seen. He is fun yet extremely knowledgable so visits are much easier to take the bad news of an injury. He also explains the injury and how he knows what it is. I drove home from college three hours just to see him specifically because in my eyes he is GREAT.
I have been very satisfied with Dr Sisk..No complaints
Dr Sisk is intelligent and honest. He proceeded as I would have.
Overall care was above average first time coming to see Doctor Sisk but very pleased with the service
Dr. Sisk has been great. Despite having difficulty identifying the source of my pain, he has worked tirelessly to try to find an answer. He has always taken the time to personally call the specialists doing the diagnostic tests to make sure he had chosen the best possible person for the job. I really appreciate all the time and hard work he has put in.
Very happy with Dr. Sisk. He is an excellent doctor and very easy to talk to. He was great with kids. Highly recommend him.
best experience I have had with mrs in a long time excellent dr disk was great
Every visit here I have had good experiences. The staff are polite and friendly. They are busy discussing your health updates and at the same time take some interest in you as you share stories.
Dr. Sisk was very personable and professional and had an excellent manner with my daughter
I was very satisfiyed
Dr.Sisk was an answer to a prayer. He was kind and listened to my concerns. He did a thorough exam. He was very cometent. All doctors should be like Dr.Sisk! Thank you for taking the time to listen.
I couldn't have been happier with the staff at UPMC SouthSide SportsMedicine. From the check-in desks, to the nurses, to the doctors and Physical Therapists, everybody was always polite, kind and genuine. I would recommend this location to anyone.
Dr. Sisk is great.
Dr. Sisk is an excellent physician!
Dr. Sisk was fantastic, and so was his staff
I did not have an appointment -- just walked in and begged to be seen by any doctor. They got me in in 20 minutes
Dr. Sisk had excellent bedside manner; listened well and actually thought about the information he received from me about the history of my injury, within the context of my clinical exam and x-ray findings; and was thorough in explaining his thought process, findings, and recommendations to me. He was also welcomed my questions, and took the time to answer each directly. I was somewhat disappointed that I could not get an appointment for over a week from the time of my injury, but once I arrived, I was very pleased with both the doctor and his office staff.
The nurse and Dr. Sisk were very friendly and encouraging. I did not feel like a number nor did it feel rushed. Dr. Sisk remembered past concerns and conversations we had and was professional and warm.
Dr. Sisk and his staff are excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent! I refer him to a lot of people!
Dr Sisk is a pro, staff processed me smoothly through the system
had a great experience
Very impressed with Dr Thomas M Sisk. He knew what was wrong with my wrist before looking at the xrays and was very professional and courteous.
Dr. Sisk was very supportive and his willingness to get me the proper care in the shortest amount of time, in the most proactive way, made me very grateful for his services.
Tom Sisk is a wonderful physician!
He is easy to understand and work with.
When I arrived, I was initially told that the doctor could only address one of my problems that day, and I would need to return about the other issue. This was shocking and unacceptable, and I nearly walked out of the office without being seen due to my displeasure. However, the doctor was asked if he would be able to see me for both conditions at that appointment, and he agreed. This decision completely changed my opinion of my visit, and I left the office satisfied.
Very professional and knowledgeable. Able to relate to the injury I suffered.
by far the best interaction I've ever had with Dr. have the upmost trust and respect for him.
Dr Sisk went out of his way to make an informed diagnosis of my health problems and set up an injection into my hip to verify his diagnosis. He called in favors to do this as it was late in the day. He did this because I had driven over 100 miles for my appointment and he did not want to convenience me with another trip. I have been trying to get an accurate diagnosis for over 2 years now and even went to Philadelphia for my problem. After some x-rays and the injection he seems to have found the problem and has proposed a treatment plan that seems very reasonable. I couldn't have been more impressed with his entire staff and concern for me. That's why I travel to UPMC for any major health problems. UPMC saved my life once and I'm very grateful. I have been to two doctors at UMPC that I did not go back to because i was unimpressed, including one who misdiagnosed my current problem. But UPMC as a whole and Dr Sisk in particular has been outstanding. I work for a behavioral health Care company and have worked at Thomas Jefferson University and am very impressed with UPMC.
The staff was very polite and quick to providing care. The doctor was very polite and seemed genuine when concerned for my care and treatment
Dr. Sisk was very clear in taking my history and explaining the x rays and options. He gave me choices in treatment regimen, suggesting the least intrusive approach (exercise). He had a great manner. All in all, I was very pleased with the experience.
Dr. Sisk was attentive, highly competent.
Dr. Sisk is excellent.
Dr Sisk has provided me with personalized care that has been second to none. His responsiveness, empathy and professionalism has been truly world class.
Care provided was very good
I was very impressed with Dr. Sisk.
I'm glad to be in the right direction in helping my knee feel better. He recommended me to go to physical therapy, which I started going to and I think he found the problem and we will try to improve my knee. Also Dr. S. will be giving me injection that I hope will work.
He was super nice, but I didn't feel like he actually respected concerns about my pain. I'm very resilient to pain, and he basically told me just to walk it off.
Only one visit so far + X-rays in office and sent for MRI on 4/3/15. Appt @ another location to review on 4/7/15. zhe listened and was able to view the injury in the necessary context. He was running late, but he apologized and took the time to explain.
Dr. Sisk is a very personable physician. I would come back to see him and would recommend him to my family and friends.
The doctor was very kind and knowledgeable with the issue of my visit and is sending me to PT to help strengthen my sore muscles. He also want to see me back in his office in three weeks.
Dr. Sisk is a very friendly, personable, and knowledgeable physician. I felt comfortable with and confident in his decision to treat my injury as conservatively as possible (i.e. begin with physical therapy before jumping to surgery). Instead of disregarding my feelings or concerns when there was no fracture, he carefully examined my injury and provided a thoughtful diagnosis that is often missed. He took the time to explain to me the basic anatomy of the ankle and how my particular injury was causing discomfort; he even referenced Google images in the exam room so I could have a visual. Dr. Sisk took the time to professionally communicate with and educate the accompanying resident, providing him an opportunity to get (literal) hands-on experience in detecting this particular injury. I would highly recommend Dr. Sisk to others!
great doctor, answered all my questions and is still assisting me
I had a lower back injury, and even though it was my very first visit, Dr. Sisk was able to see me on very short notice. He squeezed me in, but made me feel like I had been his patient my whole life. He was thorough, and seemed genuinely concerned with my condition and questions. He explained things clearly, and insisted on some follow up treatment. Even though my back is still a bit sore, my mind is at ease, and I am confident of being on the right path to recovery.
If I could give Dr. Sisk an "11", I would :-) I'm channeling Nigel Tufnel right now for those familiar with the movie "This is Spinal Tap" On a serious note - these are a remarkable team of physicians and I can't say enough on how brilliant they are!
Outstanding visit with Dr. Sisk. He was cordial, approachable, patient, thorough and â?¦ most of all, he LISTENED and responded to what I had to say. His medical knowledge is impeccable, as is the quality of his patient care. When I explained that I had a rare and often mis-diagnosed degenerative neurological condition, SWEDD, about which he appropriately (being vastly outside his specialty area) had no prior knowledge, he gave me the opportunity to describe and inform him of this malady. An impressive, intelligent, caring human being is Dr. Sisk. I have full and complete confidence in his medical skills and his humane patient orientation.
Dr. Sisk was extremely thorough and took the time to listen to all my concerns. I left feeling completely satisfied with the care I received.
Didn't brush you off like some doctors. Took the time to explain my problem to me.
I think highly of him.
It Was A Good Experience
This was my first visit with this provider and I'm very impressed. He was knowledgeable and very kind.
I had never seen this provider before however he was highly recommended by other medical professional and I can understand why. Dr. Sisk was very thorough, personable, and knowledgable.
Dr. Sisk was very throrough and helpful. I am very happy with his care.
I wish all my doctors were as straight up with me as Dr. Sisk was.
Very nice and helpfull
This was my first visit to this office and provider but I had a very good experience and feel I was well taken care of.
Loved Dr. Sisk. I could tell he truly care about me and my discomfort. Never was he judgmental of me or made me feel like he couldn't help me because I was overweight. A great doctor.
Having suffered for almost almost 12 months with pain and discomfort, I'm encouraged with the plan of action offered by Dr Sisk and feel that his treatments will get me to a point where I an able to manage the chronic knee pain I had to live with.
Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, especially Dr. Sisk. His demeanor was quite welcoming and reassuring. I sincerely appreciated his efforts toward my care.
I had a great experience w/ Dr Sisk very courteous, he listened and he had my best interest in mind
I am very grateful for Dr Sisk he is the only doctor that actually listened to me explain my symptoms and understood that something was not right . He saved my life and guided me through the proper channels to discover an autoimmune myopathy. I will be eternally grateful for him .
