This is a follow-up to an earlier review. Dr. Kesner said these exact words to me; "Why don't you just go home and die"! I don't know why. Perhaps it was because I brought 5 typed questions I wanted answers to or because I asked her questions I referenced to Dr. Perlmutter, a neurologist who appears on PBS. I filed a complaint with Ms. Weintraub, a patient advocate for Emory. Ms. Weintraub said that Dr. Kesner related in a letter Ms. Weintraub sent to me that she was "sorry to hear that what s

I visited Dr Kesner in extreme neurologic pain . It was the first time I had an appointment with her. She ordered a whole bunch of tests immediately. She listened carefully to all that I said and how I moved etc. At the end of the day we had a diagnosis proven by biopsies.She is EXCEPTIONAL!!!I have had extensive tests and visits with specialists [Mayo,Cleveland Clinics etc] and She BY FAR exceeded any other doctors I have seen for my rare diseases!

Dr. Kesner did not appear to be serious when she did my exam. She performed a very painful exam called an EMG. She never dictated any notes regarding my visits to her and she never dictated a result of the EMG.As a result, I have hesitated to seek help from other doctors because of Dr. Kesner's attitude. I wish I had never seen her. I was desperate for some help with my neuropathy. She prescribed a medicine that was so strong that I didn't wake up for days. Now I have to repeat the EMG.
