sabrina – Oct 11, 2019
He is blunt n to the point. I like that. I have been with him for decades & dread the day he decides to retire. Love that he will take care of my issues, those he can, instead of referring me to another doc. But when he does they are as good as him. Always returns my calls same day with an answer. Very good at what he does. Trust him no matter what others say.

I would recommend Dr. Kesler. He listens to questions and concerns, and answers them. He and his staff remind you of appropriate tests, screenings, and vaccinations. When necessary provides referrals to specialists with qualities of care similar to his own. I have been his patient for over 20 years.
