If you like below average care, along with horrible bedside manners, this is your Dr.
in Rabun Gap, Ga |
I drove my mother in to see Dr Kessler for the the first time. She had a 9am appt so because my mother can barely walk we left early in the am. She fell on her bad knee that has had two total knee replacements. At 81, we were not expecting miracles, however we were expecting something, an opinion, assessment, steroid injection something. She has severe pain and can not put weight on the knee she fell on. All he said was to go back to the original surgeon. And I don't do that
