Dr. Kessel is an amazing doctor. He was never rushing and patiently answered all of our questions. He was on top of all the test/lab results. His office hours are amazing and was available late. He is very honest and madeyou feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kessel and the Rubino OB/GYN group.

I guess treatment was fine, but I have to say that the receptionist who first called was incredibly off-putting. I accidentally left my reason for visit on Zocdoc's interface as "annual checkup", and because I wasn't due for my yearly checkup,they just kept aggressively badgering me about why I was coming, and questioning those reasons as if I might not know what I was talking about. Doctor's treatment was fine, but he made some uncomfortable joke about "ruining my weekend plans" because I couldn't have sex after using this vaginal gel I was prescribed...only to be followed up with him asking, "Wait...how old are you again?". As if the fact that I was 25 made it an okay joke to make. Both things aren't the hugest deal, but at the end of the day this is an OBGYN office. Reasons for visiting are sensitive and intimately personal in nature, so there should be extra care to make the visit feel welcomed, easy, and comfortable.

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 coatsyndrome,” 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 overagain 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.

I've been going to Dr. Kessel since I was pregnant with my son, starting in January 2013, and he's always been an outstanding provider, ready to answer my questions and help me get any outside testing I have needed. When seenby other Rubino providers when Dr. Kessel has not been available, they have all also been professional and helpful. Would recommend this practice to anyone.
