It was a fracture in my right heel (calcaneus) and severe tissue injuries to the left foot. Dr Sisson gave me complete understanding of the status of my injury and the path forward to recovery. What restrictions I needed to make to my lifestyle and what activities were permitted were clearly and patiently explained. I could not ask for better care or for better communication! Highly recommended.
