My complaint is about this office's deceptive business tactics. After being assured by Ogechi that there would be no out of pocket costs, I got a bill from the lab they sent in to the room to treat my wife. I spoke with Ogechi about the bill several times, as did my wife, over the course of over 2 months. First she said she would try to do something when she got the bill, then after follow up she said she was going to work to get it credited. Her and Dr. Kerstein were rude on our last call.

He is hands down the best. He listen's. He helped me figure out my rapid metabolism and I now dose 3 times a day with Armour Thyroid and T3 Cytomel. I love him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kersteins for over 25 years. I find him to be a professional and skilled Dr. He has a wonderful bed side manner and always takes excellent care of me. I have had many different medical challenges and find Dr. Kerstein has the answers or will find the answers. I don't know what I will do when or if he retires. He is one of a kind and I appreciate all of his time and patience. So glad to have such a wonderful Dr. as Dr. Kerstein.
