    How was your appointment with Dr. Sisti?

    Mar 10, 2023
    Back in 2009,I went to my ENT and was not feeling right,he sent me for MRI ,and I found out I had a Meningioma,and I started researching Dr's,and I found Dr. Sisti, I got an appointment with him. From the moment I walked into his office,I knew I was in good hands. My tumor was benign,and he advised to check it once a year. In 2016,I had my yearly MRI, then one had grown on the Optic Nerve ,and was not operable He advised he was going to try Gmanife,and the process started. I went to see Dr Tony Wang,first,and then I was scheduled for the surgery. It was a little scary,but I knew I was in good hands. Dr Sisti made me feel so safe,and I knew I was going to be ok. The procedure went well. I was back to work in a few days. I have yearly MRI's,and last year,after the 5 year mark,I am cured. Because of him,I am cured. I give him 100 stars. If you need a Dr,in his expertise,he is the one. The Best Ever! The hospital is aces as well. I was treated with such grace and respect.
