Patient Comments (2)
Washington |
I was completely unimpressed with Dr. Kressel, and that was before my spouse passed away under Kressel's care (or lack thereof). My spouse had several risk factors which Dr. Kressel failed to convey to the other attending physicians, he put forth very little effort (even after we asked him to send biopsies for further testing, he did not until I called back to confirm), and rwas wholly passive within the team when he should have been leading it.

I have not seen him since the office is SO incredibly difficult to deal with. If you get Brittany, you should immediately ask to speak to someone else. Dr. Kressel takes a considerable amount of time to review your medical records before seeing you and once he approves your appointment the office will provide you one date and 2 times....take it or leave it. They are not flexible at all.
