Not someone I would trust. Disgusting office. Badly trained staff. Poor safety controls. They would have mixed up my urine sample with someone else's if I had not noticed the error. Not nice people. I think the doctor is only out for himself.

Incompetent Self-verified patient of Dr. Steven C Kester - Posted on August 21st, 2019 My first appointment with doctor Kester was strange to say the least..instead of an exam he requested pictures. At second appointment (another $40) armed with photos I was told he could help and would need to order a prescription. After waiting about a week I called to get info and was told I needed to sign a form..that was forwarded to me and subposedly sent. After a few weeks I called again only to find out the script was never faxed..then another few weeks I received a letter from insurance stating that I was declined because they were not able to contact doctor (several attempts) so again I called only to find that form need was sitting on the doctors desk...fast forward to now (end of August) I find out they've had my script for over a week and didnt bother to call..needless to say I will be finding a new provider..they had the nerve to get nasty with me.would not take my dog to this office

Dr. Kester is a great doctor with a wonderful personality, unfortunately he has a office staff that isn't that great about taking messages, calling in prescriptions, etc...Has to get a lot better....Ask for Joe the office manager...

Doctor was informative, helpful and thorough however when I had an issue with a prescription, the person who was supposed to handle it was not interested in helping anyone. I was told to call back and when I did 10 minutes she'd left for the day. The following afternoon I was told the doctors were gone for the weekend already. I notified the office manager and received no response. Nice doctor, but his staff just don't care.

Got a same day appointment and when I arrived his staff was very helpful especially Jess at front desk. The Doctor explained what was being done and what he recommended and he was very patient and understanding. The office is clean and the staff very professional and that gave me great pleasure, I now have been going there for over 1yr and when ever I need prescription refills or medical records rest assure it has never been an issue. Best urologist in town, fast, friendly and knowledgable .
