What People Say About Dr. Scott Schissel, MD
Reply
Dr. Schissel is the best Doctor for lung specialties! I have been with him for around 5 years now and have COPD. He takes the time to listen and works with you. Which you need. Being an ex-smoker his receptiveness to new or alternative ideas, he scores high on his openness and willingness to consider others’ input. He always makes me feel comfortable and I know I am in the best hands.
