Dr. Essig is great! I've seen him a few times now, once for a checkup and twice for more urgent appointments. He has always been able to see me on short notice, has never made me wait, and I'm usually in and out in less than thirty minutes. He also has a great bedside manner, is very reassuring, and makes sure to explain everything that's happening. So glad to have found him!

Amazing, and very knowlegeble. I am glad i have found him. To people who complain about waiting! This is a medical office! Get over yourselves! If you do not want to wait find yourself a doctor who will come to your house and see only you! P.S. One of the receptionists is unpleasant, but i will not stop going just because of that. :)

Very happy with my experience with Dr. Essig. He was very warm and personable, and he took time in his office before my exam to discuss all my concerns/questions, and he was great about explaining things to me so that I understood. The exam was also quick and painless. Glad to have found an OB that I can stick with!

The doc is awesome. It's been a while since I've been to an obgyn and I was quite nervous. He put me at ease, made me laugh, was very clear about check ups and birth control options. The only issue was the wait but I believe it to be that I was a new patient and he needed a moment for a consultation. Everyone else was tended to very fast

I've only been to the office once but they were nice and they were much faster than the doctor's office's i'm used to which is a good thing. they also pick up the phone right away without asking you to hold, which is highly unusual. the doctor was very nice and sat with me in his office and explained some of my options. i found the reasonable way i was treated highly refreshing. the office isn't fancy but it's very easy to get to by train.
