I am VERY particular when it comes to doctors. Seems most of them just move you in and out as fast as they can. Dr. Hester does something that doctors rarely do anymore, spend time with you. He asks questions and explains what the plan is going to be. I moved to Avon over a month ago so Richmond is an 1 1/2 drive for me. But I do I have an appointment with Dr. Hester tomorrow and going to make the drive, I think he's that good.

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 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
