Patient Reviews (1)
in Chestnut Ridge, NY |
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!!
