What People Say About Dr. Corby Kessler, MD
Very disrespectful to orders of doctors and surgeons who have been treating their patients for years !!! Without seeing patients send to Queen of the Valley rehabilitation - you quickly discover this is a contract facility and not actually part of Queen of the Valley hospital! If you have a family member with a drug issue - he’s probably a good person to see, However if you or family member has had major surgery or injuries and needs care, compassions, strength training ... this doctor sees it as his job to disregard history of patients and orders from doctors who have had patients in their care for years. Furthermore- it has been our observation that before a weekend or most especially a holiday - being transferred from hospital to any rehab facilities is a terrible mistake- doctors are not present- staff is at minimal levels and issues cannot be addressed until start of a new work week. Paperwork gets lost and no administration.
