I would so recommend Dr. Bessas as a physician. He takes time to listen when you have concerns regardless of how long it takes. The office staff is very friendly and courteous. I am glad I switched.

Dr. Bessas is a friendly guy. But I've been going to him for over 5 years and every single time I have an appointment (which is usually just 1x per year) I wait for over an hour to see him, even if I show up early. The office staff is unapologetic, unfriendly, and unhelpful. Every time, there is an issue with my bill. Usually it's billed incorrectly to my insurance and then I have to deal with the office staff who consistently fail to fix the issue. I'd try another doctor if I were you.

Dr. Bessas is the best family medicine doctor I have seen. He listens intently to what you say and genuinely cares. He and his staff are kind and extremely competent. He is not part of a group so he can treat you as an individual and not like part of a herd.
