What People Say About Dr. Michael Schiesser, MD

I had a pretty smooth and good doctor-patient relationship(sort of). However, he does need to look at you and talk to you. Rather than just looking at a computer. I agree with these reviews that also say that he needs to listen more. He once said to me when he asked what is my goal in the next few months and said that he seriously doubted that I could accomplish what I wanted in That timeline. I found it very hurtful. Just be careful if you go to him. Personally, I wouldn’t advise going.

Has an aloof, detached, demeanor towards your physical troubles. He doesn't seem to listen to your situation, just types and "uh-huh" as your speaking, and even asks you to wait to talk until he's finished. Then when you do talk, it's as if he doesn't even hear you, as he's already made up his mind that he's only going to offer the help with medication if it benefits him or doesn't put him out there for any possible scrutiny. IMHO, find someone else... someone that really cares about people.

I've recently started seeing Dr. Schiesser for an ongoing pain condition. I appreciate his thoughtful approach and am grateful to be in his care. His staff is also really great and it is a pleasure to interface with them. I have been under the care of other providers for my condition and find Dr. Schiesser and his staff are by far more respectful and professional. This is a really perfect fit for me.

I saw dr.s when he had the first private practice in Bellevue and then moved to another Bellevue location. He really took a chance on me. 19 year old female (almost 10 years ago) addicted to OxyContin and lost in the pattern of addiction on the wrong side of the law. I made an appt to see him, and I recall that even though he was booked out sometime (months) they fit me in within a week because of my court order to switch from methadone taper to suboxone. he saved my life, I'm forever grateful.

I am a chronic back pain patient caused by scar tissue from a botched surgery more than 15 years ago. My doctor rerouted so I went to this one for help in medication management. After less than 15 mins of talking he labeled me an addict, not only to my face but in my medical chart as well. I have no med seeking history and saw only one doctor for years for my pain management. He is inconsiderate and unempathetic. I have had nothing but problems with both him and his medical staff. AVOID
