The best, most thorough and kind Dr I’ve had. I’ve been seeing him for one year and he is so nice, takes his time and focuses on me and my issue. Even will see me as a walk-in when I was so sick. Got in right away! I apologized for just showing up and he said if I’m ever again feeling so bad, drop in again. I am very impressed!

Dr. Svestka has been my elderly mother's primary care physician for several years. He has a wonderful bedside manner, is a great listener, empathetic, excellent diagnostician, and explains everything clearly using language she can understand. We couldn't be happier with Dr. Svestka.

Dr. Svestka is seriously the best doctor I have ever had. Since I've been his patient, my husband and sister have both transferred to him and they love him too. He takes a whole-person approach and really talks to you and listens to what you have to say. I can't recommend him enough.

Warning he is not a good doctor, he has horrible bedside manners. He refers you out for all ailments you may have. It's as if he is afraid to manage your health or he's very inexperienced. I was 15 minutes late because of my job and he refused to squeeze me in to be seen. It took a month to get the appointment as it is. This guy is inexperienced, his staff is not sympathetic and neither is he. He acts like a teenager at best. I would not waste your time. This is the honest truth, he's horrible.
