Dr. Esser saw both myself and my son for issues we were having with our feet. He was professional and knew exactly what was wrong with each of us and was able to explain it to us in a way we understood. We were seen right on time, taken back for X-rays and then taken immediately to the exam room. The assistant took our information and Dr. Esser saw us immediately after that. Dr. Esser was able to give both of us several options to help alleviate our pain and symptoms. I am excited to try the PRP treatment for the arthritis I am having! I would highly recommend Dr. Esser.

Dr. Esser is great. Front desk however did not relay a message to check if I needed an X-ray before seeing the doctor, so my visit was delayed unnecessarily.

Highly recommend Dr. Esser at Southeast Orthopedics. Upon my arrival to the office I was taken for xrays almost immediately and then was seen by the doctor very soon after. The office staff was welcoming and friendly. Dr. Esser took the time to listen to my concerns and the exam was very thorough.
