Do yourself a favor and do not see Dr. Kuesel. I recently saw dr kuesel for a diagnosis of Epilepsy. He prescribed me medication and after 4 days of taking the medicine, I was having 1 of the serious side effects from the drug - suicidal thoughts. I immediately called the office and left a message with the nurse. It took them over 24 hours to respond. It has now been a week and I still have no answer. Very disappointed. Called again today - 3 months to see a different doctor there. Ridiculous!

Had to go to U of M, because Dr. Kuesel diagnosed me wrong with cluster headaches, when I had severe pain on one side of my face. I went to U of M where Dr. Shultz diagnosed me with trigeminal neuralgia. I had a red veining spot on my neck & Dr. Kuesel told me to see a dermatologist, but Dr. Shultz did more test & ordered MRI & CT scans.

I felt like Dr. Kuesel knew before he entered the room and examined me, exactly what my diagnosis would be and how he wanted to treat me. I have seen Nursing Students give a better exam than I received and he even knew that I was a nurse. Good to know he doesn't put on airs. I could go on and on about the lackadaisical way I was approached and examined. I had to wait 4+ months to get in to see him because my accident was auto related and he only takes 1 new auto patient a month. Quota met.

He has been there for both my brother and I. He accepts many people and never questioned me.
