Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Kessler took care of my dad after having a stroke. His expertise turned my dad around who also had chronic heath problems. Treated my dad along with family members with respect. Sidney is lucky to have Dr. Kessler!

Worst doctor patient experience EVER!!! I was admitted to surgery floor for observation of a small infarction on my spleen. I was in extreme pain. I saw the surgeon the night before who was kind and the staff was kind then walksin Mr Kessler ( I won't even refer to him as a doctor) he was curt and short having ZERO interest in me as a patient because he was in a hurry he had 10 other people he had to see. He would ask ?'S but never allow for an answer. Told me to take Tylenol and Cymbalta!

If I could rate 0, I would. This so-called physician fired me as a patient because I told him the medication he placed me on was giving me severe side effects. He called me a liar, told me HE knows what is best for me and if I didn't listen to him, I could go. So I did. I have never met a doctor so arrogant in my life!
