Office Visit

"I was in an accident and needed to have my broken cheek bone fixed. It was an emotional and anxiety filled time for me. Dr. Brissett was my saving grace and I felt like I had the very best doctor in the world. He was kind and patient (I know I was a lot with my emotions) and he seemed to care so much about everyone- from his staff to his patients. I’m so so so happy I was able to have him “fix my face” after this terrible incident and I look forward to having him do my rhinoplasty later this year so I can breathe. I absolutely recommend and brag about him to everyone who asks!"
