I really like Dr Kessel, she is caring, thorough and listens. She never rushes me in or out. I've been to her twice, and both times wished she could be my regular MD , not just my gastroenterologist! Great Doctor!

This was one of the worst Doctors I have ever been to. She stuck her finger in my butt without even saying anything, she kept beating around the bush without saying what She really wanted to say and just kept saying "I don't think you understand what I'm saying." Well not when you won't just say it...more
