Patient Comments (7)

I've seen Dr. Hester for several years. He's thorough, caring and has a great personality. I never feel like he's rushing off to see another patient. He's always willing to explain procedures in specific terms.

Dr. Hester has a very nice bedside manner but I am disappointed with the surgery he performed. I had a punch biopsy for a deviated pore. He told me there would be a scar but the face on the skin would heal very quickly. The biopsy was done right in the middle of my nose. That was four months ago....more

I was able to get an appointment with Dr. Hester the very day, due to a cancellation. He was awesome! Great bedside manner and very competent in diagnosing and explaining my issues.

Dr. Hester is probably the best dermatologist that I have been to. I've seen many secondary to my history of skin cancer and skin problems. His bed side manner is exceptional and he explains everything in detail before he starts a procedure. Highly recommend this physician.

I was delighted with my experience with Dr. Hester. I was a new patient and felt that he took exactly the right amount of time with me. His examination felt thorough and efficient; he took time to answer all my questions.
