    Dr. Bessert has been my and my 100 year old grandmother's dr. for 5+ years. She has a warm nature and had been very competent in treating our ailments. We have had quite a few "issues" between us. When an issue is beyond her expertise, she is very conscientious about trying to refer us to good quality doctors and follows up to be sure they dealt with us appropriately. I also like her willingness to consider natural alternatives to medication if it works. She keeps up to date in her field.

    I have been going to Dr. Bessert's office for 3 years now. I've been able to see her once in those 3 years. She is never available and I always have to see a different PA in the office. I am not happy with that office. Following up with the doctor is pointless because they just have the MAs follow up with you, then when you ask questions, they have to find out and call yoy back the next day. Very discusted with their office. I just want to see a doctor, at that office its impossible.
