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.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
