San Marcos, TX |
Would not spend time with me. Asked 2 questions and then was quickly rushed out before I got to the rest of my questions. Left feeling very frustrated.

Dr. Kessler is always attentive and not rushed.

I have met with Dr. Kessler several times over the past 4 years and am completely satisfied with his delivery of healthcare services to me.
in Round Rock, TX |
Dr. Kessler and his staff are always polite, concerned, and take time with you as a patient, listening to your concerns and questions. They are very thorough, and you are encouraged to call anytime you feel unwell.
in Georgetown, TX |
I would highly recommend Dr. Kessler to anyone requiring treatment of a problem within his area of speciality. He relates easily to his patients and explains not only your problem, what causes the problem, but also the various options to treat the problem as well the pros and cons of each option. In the many years that Dr. Kessler has been my Doctor I do not recall ever having to wait. He is always ready to meet with me at the scheduled time or before.
in New Braunfels, TX |
Very competent and extremely responsive. Always gets back to you at his first opportunity, even at the end of a busy day for him. Assistants and nurses are all very nice and competent, as well.

I took my friend's word for it, she recommended Dr Kessler as an expert for the problems I was having; sure enough she was right. Dr Kessler is very experienced and knowledgable with the issues presented to him. He is welcoming, comforting, personable, I never felt rushed though it was a busy morning. He listened attentively to my complaints without judgement. He recommended 3 treatment options and didn't make me feel he's interested in either of them. He really values recommendations.

My experience with Dr. Kessler and the staff at Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia may very well be one of the most professional, efficient and complete medical visits I have ever had. I was fortunately cleared of any medical condition needing follow-up, but if I ever had to go back, or recommend a cardiologist to someone, Dr. Kessler and TCA would be at the top of my list.
Austin, TX |
very confidence inspiring.
in Austin, TX |
Very easy going but professional bedside manner and thoroughly explains issues and his reasoning for treatment plan. Seems to prefer medication to invasive procedures when possible.
in Round Rock, TX |
Dr. Kessler if by far the best doctor I have seen in my 68 years. He spends a great deal of time to make sure all of my questions are answered and that I fully understand what is going on with my heart and other medical issues. His staff meets the same high standards, especially his nurse practitioner..
