Patient Comments (9)
in Simi Valley, CA |
I highly recommend Dr. Kessey. He successfully removed a tumor from my brain and masterfully closed the wound so the scar is fading nicely. He thoroughly explained the procedure, answered all questions, and aftercare is equally satisfying. Dr. Kessey has excellent 'bedside manners'. He spends as much time as needed with me. His assistant, Terri, offers support for patients and is a direct-line to Dr. Kessey. She is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Excellent care from both of them!

Dr. Kessey performed a double cervical discectomy and fusion. He and his staff are outstanding. They take time to listen and are willing to help you through your challenging times. The pre-surgery, surgery, and post-surgery care were all excellent. I strongly recommend him for your neurosurgery needs.

Dr. Kessey performed serious and complicated spine surgery about 13 months ago. I visited him today to review the xray taken last week which certified that the procedure was successful. I give Dr. K highest marks. If, unhappily, I needed surgery again, in areas where his competency is beyond question. I would trust him to perform it.

Dr Kessey provided follow-up care after my emergency room visit for a fractured C-1 vertebra. I was totally won over; first by Teri, who is awesome - for her very responsive, supportive and calming manner, then by the Dr. himself, who's professionalism and expertise are combined with a calm and approachable manner that provided much needed reassurance during this trying experience. He is very courteous, patient and generous with his time. I wish he could be my GP!

Dr. Kessey performed surgery on back. He gave me straight, understandable, and compassionate talk about my back problem. He met with me just before surgery and after surgery . I really liked him atter we first met. His followup appoints gave me great medical, understandable, and compassionate advise. He made me very comfortable and very confident with him. I used to be afraid of having back surgery, but I got great confidence after my experience with him. I strongly recommend him.
in Calabasas, CA |
Dr. Kessey had already reviewed my MRI films prior to my appointment and thoroughly discussed my case with me. I liked the way he covered all bases.
in Thousand Oaks, CA |
Both Dr. Kessey and his assistant Terry were exceptionally good throughout entire process, from phone calls to office visits to pre-surgery to surgery to post-surgery to follow-up. All options were given and thoroughly and understandably explained. Very knowledgeable and very sensitive to guiding patients through what can be a very stressful scary time. Highly recommend.
