Kaiser good. Staff at Kaiser good and friendly. 5 Stars Courteous Staff for Kaiser - Not for Dr. Schulssel. Dr. Schulssel is condescending and a smart alec to patients. I know he had done 1000's of procedures, but his bedside manner and tone is way off base how he treats and talks to his patients. I had an endoscopy procedure by him a few years ago. He started out smart alec. Abrupt and accusatory tone and sarcastic comments. I just ignored. I was put under for procedure and woke up after. A nurse, then he came in and said he forgot to do the procedure while I was under!! After being a smart alec he forgot the procedure!!!?? I had to go under again and redo procedure!!! With his cavalier tone said to me "he's human, and humans make mistakes". I was surprised that my recent visit he was there again and assigned to me. I remembered immediately when he started with the sarcasm and smart alec-ness. This guy is a loose cannon and is in the wrong business. He should get out if is so un-happy and mean tone, and sarcastic way he handles his patients. I definitely do not recommend him.
I am an R.N. I just scheduled a follow-up colonoscopy for Aug. 2014- 6 years after my last- with a referral from my internist and oncologist. My brother died from metastatic colorectal Ca two months ago. In 2002, I had a radical hysterectomy for early stage uterine cancer. This doctor had been following me for any related GI symptoms since 1998 when I had several days of GI bleeding and discomfort which turned out to be due to taking Aleve for a shoulder injury. Subsequently, I also had two colonoscopies in the 2000s, the last one in 2008. My internist had referred me for 5 days of passing blood. After I had gone through the difficult 24 hr. bowel prep for this colonoscopy and was on the table in the colonoscopy room with an IV, EKG and B/P monitor attached ready for the sedation, this doctor walked into the room without even greeting me as the patient and proceeded to ask me why I was there and added that they didn't want to waste their time- didn't I have the procedure 5 years ago. I couldn't believe my ears and had I not gone through the awful prep and wanted an answer to this current bleeding, I would have stopped everything, taken off the monitors. removed the IV and asked for a wheelchair to be taken out so I wouldn't WASTE HIS TIME!! I was angry and wondered why he was asking me why I was there. Had he not read my internist's referral statement? No patient should ever be going under sedation in such a stressed state. Later, after the procedure was completed and I was awakening from the sedation in recovery, he very abruptly told me that he did find another problem. He completely ignored my adult son who was sitting right beside me. I will never have this doctor do any procedure on me and therefore, I asked for a different gastroenterologist this time.
Vary long wait after i was there on time with no one ahead of me.had to get loud to get some help.when they finally took my blood pressure the nurse said it would be a 30 minute to 45 minute longer.When i was seen by the Dr. he had an extremely rude additude and got angry at me for wanting to be seen at the time they schedualed me for.then he blew me off and prescribed me some meds like he did the last time.he didn't even look at me.
