Bad Medicine or Bad Luck? Either way, avoid him show details Bad Medicine or Bad Luck? Either way, avoid him
Mar 19th, 2014

Diagnosed with Cancer and referred to Dr Kestenberg. He seemed competent, has a big office, and hangs his popularity contest awards on the wall. In practice, he lets you make the decisions and live with his results. His results, however, are terrible. He operated three times, missing margins, leaving scars, causing pain over and over again. No satisfactory explanation, and ultimately took no responsibility. Whether bad medicine or bad lack, he had terrible results, over and over, and took no responsibility for it, ultimately referring, and causing it seems, additional treatment like radiation and drugs to wash his hands of the matter. No acknowledgement, I assume to cover himself. At the end of the day, if you're facing serious problems, like Cancer, you don't need his results or attitude, whether he is a bad doc, or just an unlucky one. Avoid him. Look for every edge you can get, like another doc.

Excellent surgeon. Good bedside manner. Would refer him to anyone in my family or friends. Never appears rushed. Answers all questions well.

If you need breast surgery, he is the doctor to see. show details If you need breast surgery, he is the doctor to see.

He even did my OB/GYN's wife's breast surgery... I would not go anywhere else. His knowlege of my condition & the pre-surgery nurses compliments of his skills had me very happy that he was my surgeon. (in fact: every mamogram I have the techs compliment him on how good of a job he did with my scar, etc). New Patients: he does share a noisy office with other docs but he is worth seeing in spite of that.

Totally botched my son's surgery. He suffered for months until we had the surgery redone by another surgeon. He recovered immediately after the second surgery. The second surgeon was shocked at the mess he made of my son!

Dr Kestenberg is one of the finest Drs I have encountered. He is caring, knowledgeable and listens. On a scale of 1 to 10 he is an 11. I feel like he was God sent and am so thankful I was referred to him. He returns calls. He follows through and follows up. He is just the best!

Ellen, billing supervisor, was abusive for the collection of a $20 copay (that I was more than willing to pay).

Very caring doctor. As a female I usually don't like to go to male doctors but he was very careful to make me feel as comfortalbe as possible.
