in Finksburg, MD |
He knows what he's doing and he's considerate.
in Towson, MD |
I found Dr. Kessler to be extremely professional. He performed cataract surgery on each of my eyes two weeks apart. He was reassuring, comforting and really cared about me as a patient. Yes, I would recommend Dr. Kessler to anyone who inquires about my eye surgeries. The surgeries were performed in the Carroll County Surgery Center in Westminster, MD. The office environment was opened and very clean. The entire staff was friendly and demonstrated to me a very caring and supportive attitude

The staff is very professional. Dr. Kessler did an outstanding job removing the cataracts from both of my eyes. He could have talked me into getting the most expensive lens replacement. However, he recommended a much less expensive lens. He explained the most expensive one would not work as well as the one he recommended because of issues with my eyes. He was right as I now have 20/20 vision. The surgery went smoothly as all the staff worked very well together.

The service and care for my 94 year old father was excellent. Everyone in the office was polite and caring. Highly recommend.

Dr. Kessler and his staff, both in the office and at the surgery facility, were all very knowledgeable, calm, informative and reassuring. They all made the experience very nice and brought down my nervousness with the experience.

The intake lady (cindy) was very friendly and helpful . Dr. Kessler was very informative and took time to answer questions and concerns. The ambulatory staff for prep were outstanding and made your pre-op comfortable - great attitudes and service. Dr. Kessler himself went out of his way to ease the way to presurgery and post surgery. I would recommend Dr. Kessler to all my friends

I highly recommend Dr. Kessler. I have been a patient of Dr. Kessler's for a number of years. He has handled my routine eye care. His staff is organized, polite and very helpful. Dr.Kessler keeps to his appointment schedule and personally escorts the patient from the waiting to examining room.Most recently it was determined that I needed cataract surgery. Dr.Kessler answered all of my questions and concerns. The surgery was trouble and pain free. I now see the colorful world I was missing.

I Would recommend Dr. Andrew Kessler to anyone. He gave me sight that was beyond my wildest dreams. Dr. Kessler and his staff are outstanding. Kaye G Kolb
in Littlestown, PA |
The staff is very friendly and very helpful. This is one of the few places where the Dr. actually comes and gets you in the waiting room. I appreciated being heard with any concerns and having all my questions answered.
