Care Philosophy

I feel strongly that listening to my patients is the most important aspect of the patient-provider relationship. Taking time to educate my patients about their disease is next. Patients should be empowered to understand and embrace their disease. I treat each of my patients like I would want my family treated. Communication with my patients is a vital priority.

Dr. Gessler listened to me, and really thought through as to what could be the cause of my issues. He did not rush through my appointment and had an awesome "bed side manor".. We discussed my choices and I felt like he took my concerns seriously. I have a list of other things I need to see him for, and I would definitely recommend Dr. Gessler to my friends and family.

Dr Gessler was fine, but I will never step foot in his office again due to the front office staff. They are condescending and lack any sort of kindness or concern for any patient I observed walk in during the hour and a half that I waited to be seen. I have never seen such rudeness that I watched from those two women to so many elderly patients. I was appalled. Women like that should not be in any kind of profession involving the public, much less sick patients.
We apologize for your negative experience. We acknowledge your concerns and have made efforts to correct this issue.

Really wonderful physician who listened. Great 'bedside' manner, courteous, kind, and explained what he was going to do. Follow ups just as concerned and caring as the first visit. Highly recommend Dr. Gessler.

Excellent character and charisma,I was comfortable the whole time with him.I had a surgery which was pleasant and as smooth as silk.Truly appreciated Mr.Gesslers or should I say Dr.Gesslers care into providing a quick and painless surgery for me and being as prompt and punctual as possible.I would reccomend him to anyone who is lucky enough to come across this man.Even though he his busy,he makes time for his patients individual needs and cares about them and remembers them.
