Review for Dr. Kessler

I had a great experience with Dr. Cowden. I find him to be very caring and professional. I have never felt like he didn’t have time for all my questions. Yes, I had to wait for a couple of months for my surgery BUT that is because of the pandemic. I don’t understand complaints about waiting.

Jun 28 2020

Review for Dr. Cowden

I did not have to wait long. The intake nurse was very professional (kind, patient, and helpful). Dr. Abide seemed genuinely interested in my case. He took his time and listened carefully to me, and he took my concerns seriously. I will definitely continue to see him.

Incredible bedside manor, a true teacher and healer! I have been to many MD’s and alternative Dr’s that couldn’t help me. Dr Sebring went right to the CAUSE and treated me through lifestyle and regenerative medicine— my body is almost 100% healed after years of pain that stole my joy.

Review for Dr. Kessler

Dr Soloman was very careful to look over all my medical information and make an assessment of how I was doing (fine) and also to set up a follow-up appointment in 6 months so he could keep close tabs on my health in order to be able to do something immediately should signs of need arise.
