I am Dr. John Bissell. I am a physician in solo private practice. I specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation
(PM & R). I and others in my specialty are known as physiatrists. I attended Rutgers College where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Biochemistry. I attended the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Rutgers Medical School and graduated in 1985. I was in primary care and occupational medicine until 1994 when I returned to complete my residency at the UCLA-VA PM & R program. In my last year there I was a chief resident and after graduation taught there for another year before serving as the medical director of two inpatient rehabilitation units in Southern Colorado. In 2003, I went into solo outpatient private practice doing pain and sports medicine. Throughout the time I have been in private practice, I have pursued further educational goals in hopes of improving my abilities to care for my patients. As a result I also have subspecialty qualifications in sports medicine, electromyography/nerve conduction studies, pain medicine and spinal cord injury.
