What People Say About Dr. Peter Hester, MD

Dr Hester did an excellent job with my daugter’s Knee (MPFL) surgery, and he also treated her extremely well. He got to know her and what details were important to her about recovery. He always took time to answer questions from her and from the family. His patience and willingness to go the extra mile ensured that we understood everything and were equipped to make good decisions about activities and so on. We have high standards, and we could not have asked for more. We highly recommend him.

Dr. Hester is very down to earth and very respectful. He likes to joke and keep things relaxed, which immediately puts you at ease. He doesn't believe in surgery without exhausting all other avenues first. I have actually already referred him to someone I work with. If I have another injury, I will return to Dr. Hester.

Dr. Hester was very concerned and interested in my condition. The initial exam was quite detailed and his assessment was certain. He quickly outlined the continued evaluations needed and scheduled them quickly. Once his diagnosis was confirmed, he explained in great detail the cause and damage to the shoulder. He then outlined the proper procedure for correcting the shoulder. He was extremely honest and straight forward about the pain and recovery required. Excellent post surgery followup
