What People Say About Dr. Stephen Mester, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I was a patient with Dr. Mester for a couple of years. He is not interested in what a patient finds out about his care or the reasons for his or her opinion. He has predetermined ideas and does not understand that individuals are all different in my opinion. I may not be a physician but I know my body better and if you do not agree with him he does not want to treat you. I wish I knew this originally about him. He also is entitled to his opinion but it is my life and I want to live.

I saw him today, I have had two back surgeries and lung cancer lost one lobe in one lung and half in the other. Having trouble walking so I have put on some weight. He said I see you have put n weight I said yes haven't been able to walk very good, he told me I need to quit walking so much to the kitchen. This man is sitting in front of me and is a lot fatter than I am, telling me I'm no longer 20 and I can't eat what I did at that age. He knows nothing about what I eat or drink. He is so rude

I went in on the recommendation of my PCP. I found Dr. Mester kind, thorough in his explanations, and I highly recommend this physician to those who might suffer from "white coat syndrome" like me. I also found the staff to be efficient and the support staff to be knowledgeable. I think that providing the paperwork in advance, especially because it is a really thorough medical history (but listed by condition so you don't have to write it all out) is an efficient method for staff and patients.
