Best doctor. Great surgeon Highly recommend
in Coral Springs, FL |
Dr. Kessler did my ACL surgery. He was extremely professional and caring and so was his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Kessler.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
I was informed by his office that they took my insurance. When I went for my appointments, they collected my in network doctor copay of $10. Turned out a needed surgery. So when we scheduled, they couldn't tell me how much it would cost. A week before surgery, his office still had no answers on how much it would cost. So I called my insurance company and found out that he was an out of network doctor!!! THIS PLACE IS ALL ABOUT $$$ not you or your health.

Dr Kessler is a true professional and expert in the treating knee and shoulder. His experience allowed me to have an excellent result on my shoulder and now I can work out and throw. His staff is awesome, caring and knows how to take care of patients and they followed up with me to make sure that I was well taken care of. I highly recommend him for knee and shoulder injures.
