I have found Dr. Hester to be a very caring and attentive professional who listens and prescribes appropriate treatment. Well satisfied with his care.
in Richmond, IN |
I thought he was a very caring and understanding person and really focused on my concerns, but when one of his staff members reeked of cigarette smoke and was rude, I just said I won't go back. I've been working very hard in the past year concentrating on my health and eating healthier to where I lost 142 lbs, so I don't know if I can put my trust in someone who allows his staff not to care about theirs. Nothing personal against his profession or him in general but, come on.
I'm sorry that you did not have a good experience. I can assure you that nobody in my staff smokes and if the room smelled of smoke, it was from the previous patient and at times, no amount of room spray can get that smell out in a timely fashion. Again, I do apologize for your unsatisfactory experience and I wish you luck with continued healthy lifestyle changes.

I have found him not to be people person. Don't expect any conversation with him. If you do have one, you can expect him to raise his voice and be completely rude.He never addressed my problems.or concerns. Never walk in front of him, expect immediate rage. I wasn't aware i had walked in front of him as i came out of patient room. He said i did. For whatever reason, this made him extremely angry. I hope i am never subjected to this kind of behavior by anyone.Never been treated poorly in my life
