Ratings for Dr. Darin V. Cissell
This guy is a total jerk. I was in the chair today for a root canal re-treat and he had given me the first shot to numb me then started to give me the second shot and I flinched and he threw up his hands, said if it hurts that much then you just need to have your tooth pulled and walked out and left me in the chair without so much as a discussion. Totally unprofessional!!! I was half numb and in tears would DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMEND this jerk!!! I ended up going to Stephen Thomas at Brookwood Endonotics and he was great!!! Actually in hind sight glad this guy did not work on my tooth.
I would not recommend going to see him. He performed two root canals for me and the next day I was very sore, bruised and swollen. He was very nice during the procedure, but when I called the next day to let them know how I was doing he could have cared less. I also had another tooth that started bothering me so I calle to get an appointment with him and he said he did not want to see me anymore. So I went to see another dentist and she said that my tooth was completely dead so I had to have another root canal and the procedure with her was extremely better.
I was in alot of pain and needed a root canal. Dr. Cissell's office worked me in the next day. He does everything he can to minimize any pain, and constantly is asking how you are during the process. Very gentle. Very, very, little pain during or after. If you have to have it done, he is the one you want to do it. Very experienced and kind.
Excellent care from Dr. Cissell and his staff. They were friendly and professional. Traveled from the Huntsville area and will do so again if need be. The negative comments must be from someone with an axe to grind! My experience was very positive.
the best dental experience of my life. i had a terrible toothache and called his office and they saw me immediately, relieved my pain and treated me with the utmost compassion. when you can say a root canal is your best dental experience that says something about the doctor.
Dr. Cissell was in the middle of doing a root canal for me when he jerked off his mask, stormed out of the room and yelled, "I can't do this! I don't know why anyone would want to make a living like this." I said to the hygenist, "He's not through, what am I going to do?" She said "He's not coming back." And, from the other room, he yelled, "Tell her we can recommend someone else or she can just have it pulled." I left and went to another endodontist the next day who fixed it within 45 minutes, painlessly. He was astonished at Dr. Cissell's unprofessional, childish behavior.
