Patient Comments (8)
Destin, FL |
This office is horrible! I can't believe they have any patients left after the way they treat people! They never return calls and after calling back the 2nd or 3rd time then they will finally call back sometimes 2 weeks later! Then when they do talk to you, they really have no answer or solution. They almost sound like they're just making stuff up. I am so disappointed that this is who I chose to deliver my last baby... this doctor and staff are very unprofessional and rude!

Dr. Esses was professional and understanding during my pregnancy and amazing during my delivery! I highly recommend her and her staff.
Niceville, FL |
Very professional and knowledgeable. She took very good care of me and my family.
Destin,Florida |
The staff is very unprofessional! I had a reaction to a medication prescribed. During the course of three phone calls the same information was asked & given about my symptoms with no answers. On the third call, it sounded as if I was put on speaker phone & prompted to answer the questions again while I could hear other staff members laughing & making remarks about my answers. I am going to have to go to another doctor to fix the side effects. I am disappointed & humiliated to say the least!

I was under the care of a midwife to have an out of hospital birth. Became high risk and needed to deliver at a hospital. Dr. Esses and the staff at Sacred Heart supported me fully in a natural birth, wireless monitoring and no IV or medications. Delayed clamping, keeping placenta and limited interference/interaction afterwards as requested. She worked really well with my midwife and courteous to her being there and involved.

Dr. Esses is very friendly, and my only complaint is with her staff. Good luck getting help if you are in pain or have an emergency.

I have had 3 pregnancies with Dr Esses - and over 10 years of regular exams - and have been very pleased! I had some scary symptoms with my last pregnancy - and she coached me through them and ensured that my baby and I were taken care of. One time I ended up in the ER for a possible TIA - and she met me at the hospital. .... When she found me in the waiting room still, she took charge and had me in a room being tested within minutes. She has always gone above and beyond for me! Love her!!

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Esses and her staff. They were wonderful with my last pregnancy and delivery. They were also great when I had a miscarriage/D & C the pregnancy before that.
