    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.

    Dr Kessey and Terri were wonderful in all aspects for my cervical surgery and diagnosis of Parkiinson's Disease. They are friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and kind. Dr Kessey is also an excellent and caring surgeon. I could not have asked for better support during one of the most difficult times of my life.
    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.
