Poor pain management and lack of empathy. Maybe he should rethink why he went into medicine.

Dr. Esser is a professional and caring physician. He visited me each day I was in the hospital and made sure that I was comfortable. I was home from diverticulitis surgery in two days with minimal discomfort.

Awesome Dr, very friendly and caring for his patients and his staff is also awesome, He is super thorough about what you will be going thru and explained that Yes you Will have post operative pain, for all those leaving comments saying they were in so much pain, What do you expect?? You were cut open and muscles get cut, nerves get cut, it's called surgery, not miracle healing. By far one of the best drs I have ever dealt with and will recommend him to anyone that needs GI help.

Dr Esser sat with me in his office to get to the root of my problem. He explained the procedure to be done and the number of procedures that would be needed to resolve my problem. I went exactly the same amount of visits he calculated and my problems were taken care of. I liked him so well I am referring my daughter there who is now 20 years old. Very nice and staff was very nice.

Dr. Esser, performed a surgical procedure on myself. my wife and I both did not know what the procedure was and what it entailed until after it was done, i.e.. no prior disclosure! I have been suffering for over 2 weeks in extreme pain, with more than 5 phone calls to his office and even had a second trip to the emergency room to get my pain under control. I was blatantly told that there was nothing that they can do to assist me and get my pain under control except going to the emergency room!
