Born and raised in Bay City, Dr. Tessa Schisler’s heart resides in her community. She attended Alma College for her Bachelor of Science in Biology. She went to medical school at Michigan State University's College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed her internship at MidMichigan Hospital and her family medicine residency at Bay Regional Medical Center before going into private practice in 2006. After working under a traditional insurance model for seventeen years, she decided to take a new approach to healthcare in 2023. She adopted a Direct Primary Care model to offer her patients affordable monthly memberships and direct doctor access — all to provide the best care for her community. In addition to family medicine, Dr. Schisler has a special interest in health, fitness, nutrition, and preventative medicine. She has also completed several courses in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine. 



Schisler Family Medicine has provided the Bay City community with top-ranked primary care services for over two generations. Always seeking to better serve her patients, Dr. Tessa Schisler realized it was time for a new approach to healthcare. She built upon her mission by adopting a Direct Primary Care model, providing affordable, personalized family care free from red tape and insurance go-betweens.


The new Direct Primary Care model offers affordable monthly memberships to help you save on healthcare costs, whether you have good insurance or not. Get unlimited monthly visits, a direct line to your doctor, and exclusive member discounts on prescriptions for one low monthly price. No more copays. No more complicated bills. Just healthcare done right.
