Patient Comments (8)
I have been a patient of Dr Kessler since he first started practicing in Canton, first as a partner with another Dr and now his own practice. He is very thorough, caring, gentle, professional, and persistent. He will always be my choice for primary care or infectious diseases! His assistant, Heather Is excellent as well. Love this practice!
Doctor Kessler is Outstanding doctor.. I was infected with MRSA at Saint Joseph Hospital in Atlanta, GA.. And he treated MRSA and I`m doing a lot better now.. You may wait awhile in the waiting room, but it`s worth the wait... Dr. Kessler is a very man to talk with..

My wife and I recently met with Dr. Kessler who is a gentle, kind, patient and knowledgeable medical doctor. I am so pleased that I now have a Primary Dr who will keep all of our history in one central location. From this point on data from all of our records from any hospitals, medical doctors, and pharmacies will be kept in Dr' Kessler's database. Only negative is that because he is so in demand the wait time was nearly 2 hours. Oh, and Dr. Kessler has a great sense of humor.

Dr. Kessler is very patient and soft spoken. He made me feel very comfortable and spent a long time listening to me without making me feel rushed. I would recommend him to everyone. He is the best doctor I have seen by far. Be prepared to wait a long time in the waiting room, but don't get upset about that because he is spending a lot of time with another patient just like he will with you!

Dr Kessler is the most caring,kind and knowledgeable, doctor I have ever seen. I have always felt heard during appointments where he takes all the time you need to address your issues. If ever there was a complaint is that his appointments can become backed up requiring a longer wait but it is very worth the wait if all his patients are getting the care they deserve.

Dr. Kessler manages my rare condition, CVID. He is compassionate, knowledgeable, and involved in my plan of care. His in-office wait time can get long, schedule earlier time slots and you will be better off. Some of his staff can be a bit cumbersome to deal with, and some are excellent.

I am 79 years old, have lived in many places in the USA and overseas and had many different primary care doctors. Dr, Kessler is the most thorough, knowledgeable, caring, doctor I have ever visited. My wife and I agree that he is the very best doctor with whom we have ever been associated.

Heard HE is good, IF you can get in to see him. Only took7 voicemails over 3 days to get a very COLD/RUDE woman to return a call. Then for a VERY SERIOUS infection that I needed to be seen for (last time from ER they treated immediately and told me to follow up with an ID dr the NEXT day), same use came up again a year later. After moving here I tried Dr Kessler. The woman told me I needed a referral and ALL MY MEDCAL RECORDS. She didn't Say who had to rent the truck for the records.
