Dr. Shessel was the only doctor, who diagnosed my son correctly. He knew right away what the problem could be. We scheduled a procedure to find out if it is what Dr. Shessel assumed, and he was right. I wish we would of come to see him at the beginning, instead of going to other doctors for over two years, to find out what caused my son's pain. All those deductables and time wasted for nothing. Thank you, Dr. Shessel. Reminds me of the commercial, you are in good hands with Allstate. Well in this case "YOU ARE IN GOOD HANDS WITH DR. SHESSEL!

I've been a patient of Dr Shessel for four years and have to say he is an excellent physician. He and his staff is extremely competent and compassionate. My daughter is a nurse at Northside for 10+ years and when my PSA was high and my doctor wanted me to see a urologist, she recommended Dr. Shessel as one of the best. Thank goodness that the additional testing including a needle biopsy indicated benign. Dr. Shessel's professional skill and compassionate approach made me feel very comforted. I can't recommend him enough.

My wife was a Nurse Practitioner at a big hospital for 36 years and directs me to the best doctors in north Atlanta. So when I needed to see a urologist, she sent me to Dr. Shessel. He is patient and actually listens. He recommends treatment in a way I understand (even though I work in the technology sector).

Georgia Urology has mastered the ability to provide an exceptional patient experience. They are efficient without rushing you through your appointment. Dr. Shessell reviews your file before he sees you so that he can ask pertinent questions about your health. I wish other medical offices would follow the efficient example of Georgia Urology.

I saw Dr. Shessel last week. I was very impressed with the receptionist and nurse. Very positive.. Dr. Shessel came in the room two minutes early! Don’t see this often. I hope to get positive results from the tests I am having. Will recommend him and this practice to my friends. This was my first visit.

I’ve been a patient for about 3 years. I love the registration process that really speeds things up. But, the smiling faces who greet you are the real gems of the practice. Have to mention Dr Shessel’s nurse. She is always happy and efficient. Doesn’t hurt a bit when she has to draw blood. Dr. Shessel never appears rushed, listens when I describe what is going on. He’s earned my trust that he has my best interest at all times. If you need a urologist, please by all mean contact Dr Shessel.

I received a very warm greeting the moment I walked up to check in. I was taken within 5 minutes to the back by a nurse who took by vitals , paperwork and than took me to another nurse who prepared me in the examining room for Dr. Shessel to perform test. Dr. Shessel came in within minutes telling me everything that I needed to know and every step was thoroughly explained. Every single process by each of the Shessel Team was explained with time taken to ask if I had any questions of my own. Amazing Team which I would recommend to anyone. Nothing was drawn out , Every Team member was completely in syn which is what I personally appreciate fast ( but not RUSHED ), efficient and completely caring. Thank you so much Team Shessel .

I was seen promptly, and everyone in the office was very nice and professional. The lady who greeted me was friendly. The nurse was very helpful and informative. Dr. Shessel took time to explain what I was experiencing and answered all of the questions that I had. I would definitely recommend this practice!
