Verified Patient Reviews
The staff as well as Dr. Kessler were very friendly and accomodating. Dr. Kessler had good suggestions for my knee problem and was not in a rush to do any procedures. I would recommend this practice.
found Dr. Kessler to be very personal,and professional. I would recommend him to anyone.
This was the first time for my visit to the office. The staff was very accommodating. Everything went very quickly. From the beginning, I did feel as though I was paid attention to and that felt good. Dr. Kessler told me everything I needed to hear and I left the office knowing that I was in good hands. I will do whatever I was told to do and I expect the best outcome. Thank you. Arlene Windmiller
Go somewhere else if you have the opportunity. Some staff are very nice, others cannot be bothered. Dr. Kessler seems to have no empathy for what a patient states they are experiencing. If what is causing your pain does not show up on an X-ray, it's invalidated completely and patient is made to feel pretty dumb. Tried to meet with a Vicki at my last appt to go over paperwork needed by my job, told tech and dr I needed to see her to do this, she never came out and never contacted me back. Just a hassle from day 1.
Dr. Kessler was very courteous and professional. He is also quite knowledgeable and got me relief right away by just using x-rays. Didn't seem to think I needed a CATscan at this point , which woulve just been an added expense that was not neccesary at this point and I really appreciated that.
A great staff that understands and appreciates your time. Very upfront and they always treat you with respect!
I was diagnosed and treated in about a half hour! I'm always glad to see a doctor who doesn't keep you waiting for hours!
Professional, informative, explains in easy terms to understand.
He and his staff spent time making sure that they got to the root of my problem and once it was identified they fixed my problem.
Dr. Kessler took the time to explain in simple terms what my issues were, what he recommended and why. Very professional!
I believe him to be very professional. I was so convinced of his competence that I scheduled a procedure with him. I had only gone to him for a second opinion but his assessment of my situation was right-on so I am going ahead with the procedure he suggested.
He's a great dr. Very common sense approach to therapy.
He was fast & efficient.
The office was immaculate and efficient. I received my initial paperwork in the mail prior to my first visit to speed up the pre-visit process when I arrived. The office staff was very friendly and Dr. Kessler was as reassuring as he was knowledgable. Great experience all around. If you need an Ortho, Dr. Kessler is fantastic (though I'll share a wish that you don't need an ortho as a disclaimer)!
I saw Dr. Kessler's assistant. Excellent bedside manner excellent doctor. Wait to see the doc a little too long for me. Paperwork typically too much.
Oh my. What a wonderful doctor! Truly. I had read these reviews before I went and they are actually true, at least for me. He looked me in the eye, was calm and soothing, and made me feel important and treated me in a personal way. I would recommend him to anyone! 5 stars
Dr. Kessler is experienced and professional.
I liked him & will probably use him for my Orthipedic MD
Great experience. Great staff & very accommodating. Highly recommend his services & his office & physical therapy staff.
I am a big fan of Dr. Kessler and his staff. I have been seeing him for about 20 years now. He is amazing!
Staff very nice and friendly
;-) WOULD GO BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN...BUT HOPEFULLY DON'T HAVE TOO;-)))
everything was good...
Pretty good. I was only in for a few minutes and would have liked a little more time with the doctor to go over things. Didn't exactly feel rushed, but didn't feel like all the time I needed was available either. He does come highly recommended though and seemed to know his stuff.
Great visit. Dr Kessler is definitely very knowledgeable and able to provid diagnosis right away. Hope that the other staff members are just the same since I have to do therapy and followup with different doctor.
Doctor and his staff were very polite, efficient and competent. Unfortunately, for me, the problem with my ankle joint is arthritis and for that there is no cure.
Excellent and very professional
Very professional office. Dr. Kessler is very knowledgable about diagnosis and treatment.
I was in and out in 45 minutes - which is a record for any MD I've seen! He treated my injury on the spot, ordered some tests and scheduled a follow-up. I highly recommend Dr. Kessler!
In overall I am very satisfied with Dr Kevin Kessler and his staff. Dr Kessler cares about his patients and his goal is to make them feel better.
I thought that my first meeting with Dr.Kessler went very well and we be returning in December for a follow-up to planned surgery.His office staff were very friendly and pleasant especially Victoria. I would recommended him very much plus he has a very impressive office with plagues of celebrities he has seen.
I've seen both Dr. Kessler and his associate Dr. Shafi. I would recommend either one in a heartbeat. I see Dr. Shafi more than Dr. Kessler now but both are excellent. Dr. Kessler does seem a bit impersonal but still super knowledgeable. Dr. Shafi on the other hand is one of the nicest doctors I've ever seen. He's very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. Love this facility and all its doctors including the pt staff!!
excellent service, betty polite and clear with everything and very knowledgeable.I would definitely continue seeing him.
Dr. Kessler is great great office...
Great doctor and excellent surgeon
seemed like a good physician not much interaction with him, he referred me to a back specialist
Dr. Kessler is professional and knowledgeable and I've been going to him for a couple of years for different orthopedic problems.
He was quite thorough and accommodating. I would recommend him highly.
Very nice, friendly staff. Doctor very warm went over my xrays and history and got right to the point. Would recommend him to anyone!
Todo el personal muy atento, excelente trato.
The office staff was great and the attention was prompt. From the nurse, XRay tech, and Dr Kessler. Very thorough and friendly.
Too bad his not single!
Very caring doctors, really cares and appreciates his patients.
I had the other doctor but he was good
The best Ortho in all of South Florida!
His staff / assistants were great. He was either having a bad day or just rude.
Although there is always a wait he does give you the time neede to discus your situation. Didn't feel rushed and he looks you in the eye when discussing your problem.
I have used Dr. Kessler in the past and am very satified with hi9m and his staff
Very personable and caring
Explained all of my options and was not in a hurry to get me out the door.
I have had surgery twice - and if I needed a third - I would take that broken body part to Kevin Kessler to fix. His PT staff is the best too!
I was recommended to Dr. Kessler by someone I met in Starbucks and they said he is the one of the best and I gave it a try. Results excellent choice!!
Very thorough and knowledgable. Two qualities you really want in your doctor.
Outstanding doctor! Excellent overall experience. Highly recommended.
Walked in with the worst pain... and today all is quiet and well in my knee. He knows what to do and how to do it! He also has a friendly caring staff.
I had to wait over an hour but made appointment at last second but was very impressed with the Dr. and his staff.
Very good. I like him and Dr. Shofti. Friday is a busy day, but I didn't,t have anywhere to go.
Excellent bedside manner
Seeing this doctor is always a pleasure.
A very pleasant experience and would recommend him in a heartbeat.
