Dr. Kessel took the time to explain what my skin conditions were. He talked about having some of the same issues that I had. He put me at ease and was very knowledgeable about explaining how my skin problems were not serious and how they could be treated. Very happy with this visit.

Was referred by Dr. Kessel by the nurses at the hospital I work. Called as a new patient and was able to get a appointment the next day- the receptionist was awesome. She gave me directions told me about printing out the forms etc. Dr. Kessel was extremely caring, kind and very detailed when he treated me. He was very respectful and answered all my questions. He was not rushed . The assistant Kimberly was a breath of fresh air. As a Registered Nurse I highly recommend Dr. Kessel and his staff.
