Review of Dr. Kesterson


After my recent experience with him I would never recommend someone being treated by him. He was rude and disrespectful. He never referred to me by my name - always called me sweetheart- in front of my husband. Was constantly telling me that he was providing a service and I was looking for health care.

Review of Dr. Kesterson


My sister had a recent experience with Dr. Kesterson. After sharing the details with a friend (also a physician,) their response was "He's a sell-out....part of the new school of medicine...cares more about being liked by his administrators than the patient. Unfortunately, it's about money and some doctors are conforming ..."

Review of Dr. Kesterson

- in Hershey, PA |

Dr. Kesterson is competent and confident. He is excellent in his field. He has a superb bedside manner and knows how to speak to his patients. His sense of humor is bonus and adds a uniqueness to his style. Highly recommended.

Review of Dr. Phaeton

- in Newport, PA |

My doctor sent the referral directly to Dr. Phaeton, telling me he wanted me to have her as a doctor because she was very good. She was very good and very professional. The surgery she preformed was excellent. I have had no complications and no pain from it. Her interaction with my family member after surgery was comforting and professional. I would recommend her to anyone needed care.
