Patient Comments (2)
in Hilo, HI |
Have been seeing this Doctor for some time now. Feel more like a number than a patient. As others have said, he doesn't seem to care and often is confused about what was discussed at the previous appointment. The care he renders or refers is often not specific to the actual ailment. Wishy washy is putting it lightly. Changing to a real physician, not one who is preoccupied with who knows what! Certinallly not his patients. The staff is just as bad. Confusion runs rampid in this office. I'm out!

I'm sure Dr Festerling is a good doctor. He does not explain anything unless questioned. Nice guy but spends very little time with you and says very little. Does not appear to be caring. I like him but wish he would take more initiative during our 5 min visits!
