"Dr Piston cares. Yes the wait times can be long but he does not run his office like he many others who come in and leave in five minutes leaving the person with more questions than answers. I will always choose this doctor for my orthopedic needs. "

"1 and 1/2 hour waiting in the room and 1 guy came in ask why our visit I told him, he said doc would be in soon. Waiting for 1&1/2 hours. Finally I left. Talk about a office that does not CARE!"

"Dr. Piston is the very best surgeon. I have been seeing him for 25 years. I had a total knee replacement in 1998 which was put in wrong n I walked on my toes for 17 months. I took my Mom to see Dr Piston n she asked him to look at my knee. Well, my knee was put in wrong n Dr Piston did a revision. He has done every surgery that I've needed n I wouldn't go to any other Orthopedic Surgeon in the area!! He's the BEST!!!!"

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.
