Portage, IN |
I was VERY disappointed in the overall care I received from Dr. Kester in the ER. She was rude and saw me for less than 2 minutes. Her nurse did all the work and she didn't even return to inform me my X-ray came back normal. I usually don't write reviews but she was by far the worst doctor I've ever seen.

Seen Dr Kester the Sunday after Christmas with pain in the kidney area and she also found I was having a back spasm in my flank area and neck & arm. She did a great job diagnosing my problem and prescribed some antibiotics to help the road to recovery. As of today 2 days later I feel much better. She is a very caring and compassionate person and has the ability to listen to someone talk. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a wonderful doctor to go to.
