Accepting new patients

I grew up seeing my mother work hard to give good, compassionate care to patients. As a physician, I have tried to live up to her example. I believe in working together with patients as a team. I chose family medicine because I enjoy treating patients of all ages. However, I do have a special interest in women’s health care.

Care Philosophy

I believe medicine is a team approach. I work with patients to help them take an interest in their care and be involved in their treatment plans. In addition, I strongly believe in preventive care, especially immunizations.

My whole family sees Dr. Bessert and she's amazing!! She understands and sympathizes with normal families and experiences. We've never felt rushed by her and she's open to any and all questions. Makes me feel comfortable and cared for as an individual not just a paying patient.

Dr. Bessert has been my and my 100 year old grandmother's dr. for 5+ years. She has a warm nature and had been very competent in treating our ailments. We have had quite a few issues between us. When an issue is beyond her expertise, she is very conscientious about trying to refer us to good quality doctors and follows up to be sure they dealt with us appropriately. I also like her willingness to consider natural alternatives to medication if it works. She keeps up to date in her field.

I have been going to Dr. Bessert's office for 3 years now. I've been able to see her once in those 3 years. She is never available and I always have to see a different PA in the office. I am not happy with that office. Following up with the doctor is pointless because they just have the MAs follow up with you, then when you ask questions, they have to find out and call yoy back the next day. Very discusted with their office. I just want to see a doctor, at that office its impossible.
