in Killingworth, CT |
Dr. Kressley treated several of my family members including one of my children. She is a very astute clinician, as well as compassionate and caring. She has a wonderful repore with children and earns their trust. We are so grateful for her help.
in East Lyme |
We took our son to Dr. Kressley. She was horrible. I would not recommend her to anyone. To top off her cold demeanor and inability to connect with anyone in our family, much less our son, she billed us for a missed appointment. There was a miscommunication about the appointment because my son was being seen through a hospital at the time. She didn't care. She said, "My time is valuable." It didn't matter that we typically waited 30 minutes or more for our scheduled appointments with her!
in Deep River, CT |
She is cold and clinical. What a terrible disappointment. Just awful experience.
in Uncasville, CT |
So disappointed in this woman. Extremely short on the phone. Shows little feeling when talking about matters that are important to patients. Offers no solutions and comes off shockingly uninterested in patient situation. I've taken my son to several doctors and I was really praying Kressley would be a diamond in the rough. She's not. At all. Very sad.
East Haddam, CT |
She is very dominating and apathetic in experiences I and several friends have had with her. She prescribes medications which strongly conflict and duplicate.
