Verified Patient Reviews
This provider seemed very distracted and I found him unprofessional. He saw me without verifying my insurance. He also tried to inniciate a discussion about my condition in teh hallway but stopped himself in the nick of time. I came to him for pain and all he did was look at my posture, no manipulation occurred. He said I would have to come back another day to get it done. This was a waste of my money because I still had to pay a co-payment. He seemed disoriented as his front desk person who he referred to as "the girl" was not there and or for some reason he kept lying over and over saying she is having a hard time with her commute but it was already 5 pm when he finally saw me...ohh and my appointment was at 4: 30. He told me to come back in two days and "the girl" would confirm with me of my appointment time and day but I have not heard back from her.
Believes in brain and mind healing as opposed to pharmaceuticals. Once the mind is 100% healthy your body will be 100% functional. Really helped increased my focus on work and relieve most of pain on my neck and back. Will continue to go visit him and refer him to my colleagues.
Dr k was great at educating me and provided me with the best care. I felt so much better after he provided me with a belt and medication for my a aching back!
Other than their Internet being down, so they didn't have my paperwork everything else was great!
Good visit. The Doctor is very knowledgeable in his field. Very personable. I like him :-)
Dr. Kessel is amazing !!!! He knew his stuff...trying to get down to my diagnosis was very Important for him as well a treatment to help correct my situation. Wait time was under 5 minutes. He took his time to explain everythin. This was my first time ever seeing a chiropractor so I was a little nervous but Dr.Kessel help me feel at ease and comfortable.Great DC.

Dr. kessel is a capably and caring doctor. The interests of his patients is of primary concern.
Dr,Kessel was spot on,great,great,great..will return when the need arises.
Dr. Kessel seems good but rushed. The office is chaotic. Some patients are seen in the front office!
I'd had a few sessions with Kessel about six months ago, the pain in my neck and back was re-leaved and it was beautiful! Always very quick and efficient. When I went in recently and found out I wasn't covered by my insurance, they recommended a wonderful chiropractor right next door who was able to see me same day. Great team!
Dr. Kessel was very friendly, thorough and knowledgeable.
Dr. Kessel is easily the best chiropractor i've ever had. His adjustments were the most effective i've ever experienced, but the additional information and services he provided (teaching me exercises and explaining everything in detail) really set him apart from previous chiropractors. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.
I made the appointment last minute and they were able to see me. Once there I was treated kindly and quickly. I was nervous going in as I had never had one of these kinds of appointments before but any hesitation I had quickly dissipated. I left feeling satisfied that they had answered any questions I had and I am looking forward to returning for my follow up.
Very knowledgeable. Understood my issue and gave me good feedback on how to correct it.
