What People Say About Dr. Kent Kessler, MD
Reply
Emergency appendectomy-- we called my mom on the way to the OR and Dr. Kessler prayed with her on speaker phone while he held my hand. That meant a lot. It's 24 hours later and I have had worse pain from workouts than I did from the surgery. He must be very gentle.
