Powell, OH |
Very professional, deeply concerned with the needs of his patients. I would definitely recommend Dr. Schissel very highly
in Salisbury, MA |
The office staff is Aweful! They lie to patients about the doctor seeing them, make them wait for hours until after the office closes and theirs no one there to say the doctor can no longer see patients! Why tell a patient to come in then? Staff scheduled not 1 but 3 appts for the same thing because this doctor didn't have enough time during visits not perform physical I was scheduled for 3 times people!!!!! HORRIBLE STAFF AND HORRIBLE DOCTOR STAY AWAY IF YOU VALUE YOUR HEALTH!!!!
in Merrimac, MA |
I left a review for this doctor and it wasn't never recorded on here..... so I left 2 more...... here I am a year later and NONE OF MY REVIEWS ARE ON HERE! I was a patient who had to schedule multiple appointments for a physical for disability. I scheduled 3 appointments and they KNEW when I called what it was for I was VERY SPECIFIC, and they scheduled me, but he never did see me, he never had "time". Every appt he only had less then 5 min to come "talk" to me! HORRIBLE DOC UNPROFESSIONAL STAFF

The office staff is horrid, they don't care about the patients at all! Dr.schissel I waited over an hour to see you for 6 minutes? Do you think that's fair? This doctor and his staff do not care about our health If he did, they wouldn't overbook appts every 15 min to make the maximum dollar everyday. Doctors are starting to act like politicians! My health is more important to me then the money you're making off of 5 other patients who got booked at the same time as I did! Greedy practice!!
in Amesbury, MA |
The office/nursing staff is rude, condescending, and are inefficient. They tell you what you want to hear on the phone, and do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! I had to go in person to get to the bottom of things, because I'm serious, what they did to me is illegal! They knew I was upset and let me wait to see the doctor, until the waiting area was cleared of patients to break it to me that the doctor wasn't going to see me, and they weren't going to help me undo their mistake!They do NOT CARE ABOUT PATIENTS
in Peabody, MA |
Dr Schissel is one of the most thorough Doctors I've been to. He asks a lot of ?'s to get to the route of problem. Is a class act!
