He was so nice and informative! He helped me very quickly and was more than willing to be in contact with me again if I needed any more help. My only complaint was the wait time. I waited about 35 minutes,but I suppose that can be expected in a busy doctor's office. Overall, great experience!

Dr. Kessler came recommended to me by my PCP (who I've known and trusted for just short of a decade). I felt that Dr. Kessler did a very thorough job; he did a good exam and took the time to answer all of my questions. I'd recommend him.

Dr. Kessler was fantastic; very thorough, explained everything, and I needed a referral to another specialist, so he had his assistant set that up for me later this week, and then said if there was anything I didn't understand from that appointment, I could call him for clarification. Very nice!
