This was my first visit with Dr. Esser, he was very pleasant and explained exactly what was going on. He did some injections on my knee and was very gentle. He asked me to call back in two hours to let them know how I was doing. I highly recommend him for any orthopedic needs you have that doesn’t require surgery.

Dr. Stephan Esser was thorough throughout every step of my initial examination. He explained everything and made sure all was understood and took his time to answer any questions. He is professional, courteous, personable, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and offers numerous options to your prognosis and future well being. The staff who works closely with him are equally as efficient and an asset with their caring and knowledgeable approach. The office atmosphere is clean, nicely decorated, welcoming and the receptionist I dealt with was very efficient as well. I was pleased with my overall experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Esser and staff.

As a RN I have enormous difficulty finding a professional MD who is also compassionate, straightforward and sharp. Also not intimidated by me in any way. Dr Esser is fantastic and I'd recommend you see him before making appts with surgeons. He can perform near miracles with nonsurgical intervention. He abd his support staff are divine!

Very through and professional. Had taken the time too review my history and X-ray. Asked great questions about the history of my condition. Listened to my questions and answered each one. This is the first time I felt that the doctor took time too address my concerns. I wish I had been able too see him earlier. Before my condition had progressed!

Dr. Esser was professional, compassionate, knowledgeable and didn’t rush to the next patient. He really focused on my specific issues and explored many options for healing, rather than just standard treatments. If you want a doctor who will give you superior, individual treatment, try Dr. Esser.

Dr. Esser was HANDS DOWN the most phenomenal physician I have ever had. I NEVER write reviews, but I had to write one for him. He was extremely friendly, personable, took the time to explain everything, took the time to answer every one of my questions, AND he maintained eye contact with me the entire time instead of looking at a computer screen. Absolutely amazing. If I could make him my primary care doctor I would
