I visited Dr. Bliss for a consult regarding the removal of a lipoma. The appointment was on time. Dr. Bliss provided me all the information I needed and answered all my questions. She couldn't have made it easier for me. I wish all the doctors that are part of your network were as helpful as she was.

Dr. Bliss is very caring and thorough. She spends time with her patients explaining everything, fully reviews test results and all the things related to your care. I have recommended her to family members and friends and will continue to do so.

5 out of 5 stars

Upon my first meeting, Dr. Bliss was the first surgeon who was completely prepared on my medical situation. She fully understood, discussed, reviewed tests and showed me my films.She made full eye contact and stopped talking multiple times to allow me to ask questions. I felt we were both in this together. I was fully prepared for my surgical options. She did a fantastic job on my surgery. I had no fear and knew I was in the hands of a competent and caring doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Bliss.
