Dr.Kessler is what every physician should aspire to. Seeing him doesn't feel like the traditional doctor experience or like you are at one of the corporate care facilities where they are just shuffling you through the process. He takes the time to listen to you and hear your concerns. He's extremely personable, funny and the best in the city. Can't say enough good things about him. Highly recommended.

Dr. Kessler has been my family's doctor for years. He is kind, patient, caring, and extremely trustworthy! I recommend everyone I know to him, and wouldn't hesitate to do so.

Best and most thorough Dr I have ever had. Easy to talk to and helps you understand what is going on. Wish he was not so far away from my home and work. He is definitely the best I have ever been to.
Mission, KS |
I started seeing Dr. Kessler last year at the suggestion of a couple co-workers. My first appointment with him, during my exam he asked if I had been diagnosed with a condition. A condition I suspected I had, but I had not been diagnosed with it up to that time. He is probably the most thorough Primary Care Physician I have ever been to. He has an exceptional bedside manner, and makes you feel comfortable from the first appointment.

He is just an amazing dr. He really cares about who is in the office and does what he can to help. He's not just about the dollar signs. He has a great way of making someone feel comfortable by joking around and keeping the situation a pleasant one. He's just outstanding
