Dr. Vester diagnosed me correctly with MS before MRIs were available. However once diagnosed he didn't believe in doing MRIs often enough to see if the medications were helping to slow progress Otherwise he's a great physician.

Though Dr. Vester was initially considerate, when I had additional questions he was curt and dismissive. Most importantly, while under his care, I was completely misdiagnosed (as I came to find out after seeking a second and third opinion) placing me and my infant daughter at risk. As such, I do not recommend this doctor.

I was very impressed with Dr Vestor's wealth of knowledge and treatment plan for me. Subsequent to a serious car accident in 1999 I have seen neurologists at top institutes who have all kept me in hospital for tests, and monitoring; my treatment plan was not helping and did not make sense.I was recently referred to Dr. Vester and he immediately recognized the type of epilepsy I have. He took the time to explain the type of treatment plans that make sense for me. Dr. Vester showed me why my prior medications were not working, as these drugs did not target the area of my brain that was malfunctioning. In a long line of doctor's he has been the first to identify the part of my brain that was hurt, and has extensive experience treating epilepsy. I consider him to be an expert in his field, and a life saver.
