      Made the appt for a colonoscopy as I had just turned 50. Found Dr Kessler to be very attentive and interested, even as this was an appt for a baseline colonoscopy. On hearing family history, recommended a baseline endoscopy (as my Father had just died from esophageal cancer). I really liked him personally, but found him to be a very thorough and caring professional. I would highly recommend him and DID, to my husband..

      He was a good communicator and had to always repeatedly ask questions as if hadn't even viewed the chart. It's almost impossible to get an appointment or to get a nurse to call you back.

      Practically on wairing time for my new patient appointment! Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Valet parking was great! Dr Kessler took the time to listen to everything I had to say. He performed an endoscopy and colonoscopy to be done the same day and I have to say it was about as pleasant as that sort of procedure could be. He was very pleasant and has a great bed side manner. I would definitely recommend Dr Kessler to friends and family.

      At first, he got in and out of the exam room quickly but, as he learned more about my condition, he spent more time explaining. Once you get to know him, the visits are in depth. I've never had to schedule and urgent appointment so I don't know how that is. I gave it five stars as a default.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
