    Olympia, WA |
    Dr Kesting is a good listener. He took time with me to understand my issues and was respectful of my opinions and thoughts (whether he agreed or not). I had a lot of questions and he took time to answer all of them give me honest feedback without trying to rush me out as I sometimes feel doctors do.
    Extremely thorough examination
