Dr. Shessel is the best! I drive 3 hours to see him when needed! I have been a patient of his for over 6 years. He has helped tremendously with Interstitial Cystitis! Most days I don't even realize I have it! He is very kind, understanding, and supportive! Go see him for yourself!

I have been his patient for more than 12 years. He is very professional in all his dealings. Has a deep concern for the patient's needs and concern. I live in a small town, and we now have other Urologist in the area, but I continue to make the 50 mile round trip because I have confidence in him and his staff

Great doctor, very satisfied with treatment
in Alpharetta GA |
As soon as I got to the Dr. Shessel's office the receptionist and nurse were very helpful as what to do. Dr Shessel came in around 2 minutes later Dr Shessel asked a few questioned then step out for an examination. I thought he would setup surgery and I would be off my feet with no lifting for 4 weeks instead he suggested An alternate where I may not have to have surgery. That was a shock but I was thankful for his confidence. This is a great doctor in my opinion

I was incredibly uncomfortable having to go to a urologist, let alone a male, but Dr Shessel has been a great professional, a superb clinician and surgeon, and I highly recommend him. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I've been going to Dr. Shessell for many years. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my health care needs in the area of urology.
