Dr. Bessler has several patients who have had complications after their surgeries. He also has students performing highly sensitive surgeries which are causing life threatening infections. Please look into these serious claims.

I had Bilateral Hernia Surgery done by Dr. Marc Bessler. I was highly impressed by himself and his staff. The Dr. has an exceptionally pleasant & caring personality. He listened patiently to all my questions and answered them all very clearly. His calm personality is also very helpful and reassuring to the patient. I'm glad I chose Dr. Bessler as my sergoen. I couldn't have made a better choice! He actually came highly recommended by a few local referral agencies. Now I know why!!
