Dr. Michael D Schessel has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Frequent misdiagnosis - demonstrated a lack of empathy for children

We saw him several times over the course of 10 days and he said my child had a common cold. After the third visit, and misdiagnosis, we called another dr about his condition. My child was sent to the ER and admitted to the hospital with pnemonia.
