The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Lisella.
“I was suffering from almost unbearable pain in both ankles from RA. My GP suggested I make an appointment with Dr. Jordan Lisella. I did. Dr. Lisella told me he could help reduce or eliminate my pain. Thirteen years suffering and not one Dr. could help. Thirty minutes with this Surgeon from the Bone & Joint Center in Albany, NY and he changed my life. He was serious, quiet but interested and took "his" x-rays, which he looked at for a long time. He then looked at my feet and ankles for a long time. Then he looked me in the eyes and said "I can help you." I had to say what? I didn't believe what I'd heard. He said, "I can take your pain away." Dr. Lisella then proceeded in great detail to explain to me what he would do, how it would help and what he was not going to be able to help me with. I felt like I'd been listened to for the first time in a long time. He also laughed at my stupid jokes which helped to endear him to me. Fast forward to six months later, the pain in the foot and ankle he operated on is at least 80% better. So thankful my GP recommended him to me.”

“He speaks to me in a way that I understand and is "straight out of the woods." I like his "bedside manner," and how he keeps me informed in ways that I can understand and is forthright. He solved and re mediated a long term condition in my left Achilles, and recently worked on ding the same for my right, and so far so good!”
– Jeff F.
“Caring and concerned with my successful recovery.”
– Barbara P.
“Dr. Lisella was very thorough and was very helpful. After a full and excellent description it looks like I will be having the repair surgery on my foot. I may not be looking forward to the recovery process but I am confident it will get me going again without pain.”
– Tom R.
“Dr. Lisella performed a tendon transfer on my right Achilles' tendon. Within 8 to 10 weeks I was in shoes and walking around. I found him to be very professional and willing to respond to any questions I had. He did such a good job in closing my incisions that my scars are barely noticeable.”
– John S.
“He is the best.”
– John V.
“I enjoyed meeting Dr. Lisella. Personally my preference is for someone who truly has their mind solidly fixed on helping me get better. When he came into the exam room he introduced himself to me & shook my hand. We talked for a bit & he absolutely listened to what my concerns & fears were. His assistant took some special x-rays of my feet. He looked at them a long time, then he came back into the office & looked at my feet for a long time while we lightly chatted (mostly me as I was nervous). Then he stopped looked me directly in my eyes & said "I can help you" and because I couldn't believe what I'd heard, I said WHAT? He calmly repeated "I can take away your pain". After hearing there's nothing I can do for the past dozen or so years, the enormity of this statement hit all at once & I almost burst out crying. He then explained in pretty good detail what he was going to do & what he would be able to repair. He was also very honest & told me what would not get any better, what he could not help me with. I appreciated this immensely as people often promise the moon & don't even deliver a star. One additional thing that I liked was that when I'm very nervous I often crack silly jokes, whatever comes to mind. Dr. Lisella laughing at those stupid jokes helped me settle in & be less jittery. Thanking him for laughing at my stupid jokes he said, "Well they were pretty good". Worked for me. Getting ready for the surgery was a bit scary for me but Dr. Lisella checked in with me & explained again what he'd be doing that day. Everyone else involved came & did their thing and answer my questions. The surgery went very well, mostly because the leg block & spinal together lasted about 27 hours. I'll skip the pain part but it was ugly! Can't particularly remember much directly after the procedure but going to my first check up after surgery two weeks later went fine. My incisions looked very good & Dr. Lisella & his assistants got me into the proper boot & I've been recovering fairly well ever since. Will be seeing him in the next week or so & we'll see how I'm doing. Looking forward to walking again sometime soon. If this all works out & I can walk better with less pain, maybe I'll get the other foot done somewhere in the future!”
– Gail G.
“Was it due to a fall at work to see if arm: elbow broken. Dr. Lisella was very personable, very understanding, empathetic, and thorough. After the initial exam, X-rays got taken, and he let me know results which were negative for fracture — made a recommendation to continue it and follow up if necessary.”

“I thought that the whole process went very well, meeting with The Bone & Joint Center and Dr. Lisella for the first time. Everything was very professional, this was not my first time seeing a doctor for my plantar fasciitis, but it's been 17 years. Dr. Lisella was very professional; he was also busy. He spent the right amount of time, I got x-rays the next room over very quickly, he read them, Dr. Lisella explained what I had, he came in with a steroidal injection, everything was as I had hoped, I'm just waiting on the healing process.”
