i have been going to Dr. Kessler for over 5 years. Wait times used to be bad but not so much the last couple of years. He and his staff are always friendly and easy to talk to. I have the type of skin that scars easily and as long as you follow directions, the scaring is minimal. I highly recommend...more

He removed a mole that looked unusual, left large hold in arm, did not consider how this might look afterwards, very unhappy. I've had other moles removed by another Dr. and they ensured the scar was minimal, even used a stich or two as needed.

Dr. Kessler seems like he is doing everyone a favor just by showing up. His patient skills are terrible, the last time I saw him he was upset that he couldn't leave early and I felt he took some of it out on me. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.

Wait time is terrible. Always 45 min to hour wait. Sometimes longer. Staff are not friendly. I can see why, everyone in the waiting area are upset about the wait.
