Two Stars

He's knowledgable of what he does but as far as bed side manner goes he needs a couple of classes on that. He basically did a procedure on my 20 month old and stood in the room with us for 2 whole minutes. I actually had to get the nurse to go get him so I can ask him some questions and he wasn't too happy with that. I understand Dr's are busy with other patients but you should at least take time out and ask if there are any other questions. Will not be using him again.

good doctor, terrible wait times.

Dr. Schlussel himself was knowledgeable and approachable. He explains things well and is willing to answer any questions you may have. However the wait time is crazy. I waited over AN HOUR to see him and I had an appointment.

Dr. Richard Schlussel literally saved my life. I would not have been able to get through college if it was not for him. He is such a kind and caring person and I would not let any other surgeon touch me besides him. I owe him my life!

I was very pleased with Dr. Schlussel. He spent a good amount of time with my son and I and listened to our concerns. I felt very confident with his diagnosis and would recommend him highly.
