Patient Comments (4)

Dr Schessel is very nice and personable. It's his secretary Amy that is incredibly rude! She is unprofessional and speaks down to you on the phone. I have never dealt with such a rude person in my entire life and that says a lot because I am also in the medical field. She needs to be fired.

I generally don't write reviews, however my experience with the staff and their ability to organize and keep appointments is appalling. I recently had an appointment with Dr Schessel which was scheduled 4 months in advance. I showed up for the appointment and was informed that they cancelled it.....more

He is not personable , he asked me to describe how I felt and my answer was met with a berating that I wasn't describing my symptom to his satisfaction, I've been a nurse for 27 years and have never experienced his level of ignorance for emotional intelligence and patient satisfaction
