    Dr. Mysiw is wonderful he always takes his time during appointments to address my needs. I don't know how I would've gotten through my health problems (_____) without him.

    Pro: listened to concerns and didn't push medicine.

    This provider is the last in a long line of doctors attempting to diagnose and treat a problem which has grown steadily worse over 4 decades. All of the other doctors have determined that, while they don't know how or why I suffer the symptoms, they know they should pass me on to another specialist. Dr. Mysiw says I have been passed around to enough different specialists and I am "stuck with" him until we figure this thing out. Any new specialists will be "with him" not instead of him. I am both happy and relieved to finally have a doctor who is committed to me and my case until we get it right! You have no idea how important that is and how it brings HOPE, which is as important to my health as any form of diagnosis or treatment.

    It is simply a statement of fact to say that without Dr. Mysiw's care and genuine concern for my health and well-being during the past twenty years that I would not be here today. I have the utmost respect for him both as a doctor and as a human being.

    Dr. Mysiw is a treasure. He's been following up regularly on my TBI since my accident 13 years ago. He listens, asks me the right questions, and keeps looking for new ways to improve my condition.

    Dr Mysiw takes time to ask questions as well as answer each and every one I have. I arrived to his office in an e.otional meltdown and left feeling better about myself and now armed with some strategies to overcome my painful situation.
