My initial complaint was uti symptoms. The staff didn’t test me for it and the speculum was cold. Kessler totally misdiagnosed me. I’m not in menopause but her diagnosis was for women who have finished menopause! But I went to the follow up after using prescribed drugs and she talked down to me because I used the medicine different than prescribed. (Because I felt better) I was not asked why I used it differently. I clammed up and didn’t explain and then Kessler roughly used a rubber glove without to check inside me. On the 2nd opinion the diagnosis was different and turned out I was doing the meds correctly for my real issue and my hormones were not the issue. I would not recommend her ever.

I highly recommend Dr. Kessler! I find it EXTREMELY difficult to believe that anyone has had problems with her. She's simply awesome and I am lucky to have found her

I had a Pap Smear done. I am used to doing these every year. The doctor however did a rectal exam without warning me she would be doing this. It was done abruptly and was painful. It felt unprofessional and uncaring. I have worked in the healthcare field for decades and know how this should have been handled. I was disappointed with my visit.

Dr. Kessler actually takes the time to get a detailed medical history before moving forward. No other doctor had asked me about eating habits or past partners before. She genuinely cares about your whole health, not just her area of expertise. Her wait time is minimal and her office staff is patient and friendly.
