he's good, his PA.. I have nothing good to say there

I have found DR H. helpful and attentive, but I can only communicate with him during my annual visit.. At no other time will the high and mighty PA allow any communication btwn Dr and Patient. AND she does not relay messages, or listen... I have absolutely NOTHING good to say about the PA, but good things to say about the DR.

For the money and your health, may want to look elsewhere.

I found Dr Hester very nice and professional but also much to conservative with diagnostic testing and possibilities. Seems like very much by the numbers (for lab results) kind of practice where these results seem to trump symptoms. He also provides very little feedback. I found the PA that I did follow-ups with to be totally arrogant and inadequate. Since she is part of his "team" she also gets included in the review. With symptoms that were never resolved her advice was to look elsewhere but provided no referral. In between the long periods of several months between appointments and deciding that I had suffered enough without adequate diagnosis and treatment, I looked elsewhere and am glad I did.
