Really didn't listen to the problem. Became angry when asked a question, raise her voice, came across as uncaring. Decided to go for a second open, found out she gave me a wrong diagnosis.

Dr. Hester does the basics - annual physicals and when you have a cold. Most of my visits have ended up with a referral to another doctor and a not-quite-right diagnosis. There is one scheduler for six doctors. Appointments are easily scheduled but tests can take several weeks and if there are insurance hoops to jump through, you're on your own. I gave her a year and decided to go elsewhere.

Dr. Hester is a very caring physician. She listens to her patients, which to me is a very important quality in a doctor. Her office staff is very nice and respectful. They handle appointment times in a timely efficient manner.
