Dr. Lee G Kissel has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Very caring & competent Doctor!

I have seen Dr. Kissel since 1998. He's a great doctor--highly skilled, caring & empathetic. He has treated me for everything from the flu to arthritis.

Excellent in every way

Dr.Kissel has been our family doctor since 1991. My son was very scared of doctors and would cry and scream. At the first appointment (age 3) , Dr. Kissel got down on his level, and said "What's wrong?". He stopped crying and has loved Dr. Kissel ever since. He has seen our family ever since. He is very skilled in making even difficult diagnoses. I had a very unusual case of shingles which should have been very difficult to diagnose, and he was able to get it right, and I was able to get on the anti-viral medication right away so I had no scarring. He is always pleasant and I always feel like he knows me as a person. I feel like we are lucky to have him as our doctor.

Many Thanks

Years ago my wife and I asked our nurse friend and mother of three who her family doctor was and she replied,"Dr. Lee Kissel, he's the best!" I signed up. Now that I am 63 I've lived long enough to really appreciate outstanding people and their work, and Dr. Kissel is on top of my list! Thank you for: 1) Taking lots of time checking me out and asking questions on how I feel. 2) Making me feel comfortable asking you questions about my health. 3) Your fast follow up, calling me on test results so I don't have to wonder and worry. 4) Being up to date and open minded on new medical information. 5) You and your staff being so pleasant, upbeat and organized.I am now into my 2nd decade of going to you and I have noticed in all these years from observing your other patients; men, women, moms and kids, they all like you and want you to be their Doc! And I include myself as well. So Dr. Kissel, thank you very much for being my Doctor and doing such a great job.

Five Stars

Dr. Kissel is the most caring, intelligent and devoted Dr. around. He is a father himself, which gives him the humanism needed to care for any child. He always follows up his appointments with a phone call when needed. I've never trusted anyone with my kids as much as Dr. Kissel. We have had some recent problems with our 9 yr old daughter and he is ALWAYS available to see her in an emergency, no matter what his schedule is like.
