Experience
Dr. Michael Schiesser completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Virginia Mason Medical Center in 1997, practicing in solo and group primary care, urgent care and ER environments. His primary focus is assisting patients whose prolonged exposure to opioid pain medication has become counterproductive, and positioning their care for improved long term health.
Philosophy
My focus is on medication safety, and improving the long term health of a patient, with as few medications as necessary. A high value is placed on patient accountability related to provider instructions for medication use and secure handling. Patients unable to safely self-manage their medications may be referred to a higher level of care, appropriate for their illness, such as inpatient treatment.
Personal Information
I enjoy skiing, camping and music.
In the Community
I am the immediate past president of the Washington Society of Addiction Medicine.
