I am pleased with the care and future recommendations that I am receiving from Dr. Shessel, he is very knowledgeable in his profession.
Dr. Shessel is an amazing physician on so many levels. He is patient and answers any questions or concerns you have. He is kind and compassionate. Just by talking to him you know he knows his stuff. I like that Dr. Shessel has awesome bedside manner and you feel like a person and not just another patient each and every visit. I love his staff as well! Thank you for helping me for YEARS with my IC!
I saw Dr. Shessel after 3 other physicians (not in his practice) insisted I simply had a stubborn infection. Dr. Shessel was the only one who actually listened to me, analyzed ALL my symptoms and ordered further testing (late on a Friday afternoon) to make an accurate diagnosis. The result: not an infection at all. Multiple blood clots in my lungs, which can be fatal. Dr. Shessel paid attention, thought critically, acted quickly and likely re-routed my outcome, for which i'll always be grateful.
