Dr. Kessel was helpful during my appointment today. The second I advised I had a few questions and one small concern, he gave me his total attention, provided different avenues, and pointed me in the right direction. Despite having “white coat syndrome,” it’s a pleasure dealing with Dr. Kessel and speaking with him makes me forget about being petrified of doctors.

Even though I filled out all my info on zocdoc, I still had to fill 2 pages of the same questions. Seems kind of silly since I've been going there for years and I'm giving the same info over and over again and also on zocdoc. I did not get the text from zocdoc until after my appointment to tell them I already sent my info in. Dr. Kessel is an excellent doctor.
