Excellent physician

Dr. Kessler is an excellent physician and a truly caring human being. I have had the unfortunate circumstances of having a child who needed multiple surgeries, and one who went undiagnosed by other physicians with appendicitis. He is always very thorough in his exams and explains the procedures well. He has the ability to put parents at ease during a difficult time. His caring and compassion are unparalleled.
