I saw Dr. Schissel wanting a physical and to discuss a recent experience I had in which I believe I may have miscarried. A med student came in first and I told her I need to discuss a possible miscarriage. When Dr. Schissel came in, she instructed her student to perform a pap smear. I've had 2 before; however, this was the most painful. I was clenching my fists in pain, to which she instructed her student to "just shove it in" and I couldn't believe it. She didn't even perform the physical!

Love Dr. Schissel how ever went for an appointment to get birth control to stop having periods because mine are awful and extremely painful, her nurse gave me a lecture on how I am to young to decide not to have children (I am 40 just FYI) and in a condisending voice to me she will have Dr . explain periods and why we have them ( I work in the medical field) I know why we have them, she overstepped her bounds and is luck I don't report her

Today I stopped having dr Schissel as my PCP after being talked to the way she talked to me today and told she would no longer be my doctor concerning diabetes. When it got to be too much or I was too much of a bother with it she backed out. Refused to write note about missing work but changed meds and insulin and thinks it should be all better in a day. I explained my stress and anxiety and she told me to suck it up and get back to work. Not professional at all! I used to respect her.
Dr Don has always been very helpful and professional.
