We love Dr. Kestle

Dr. Kestle is a wonderful doctor! As soon as we found out that our daughter needed brain surgery everyone said we should try to get Dr. Kestle. When our little daughter had brain surgery he wasnt exactly sure what to do, so he consulted with the other doctors and then came back with a plan. I love that he didnt just jump right in, or pretend like he knew everything. I love that he took the time to weigh his options and get second opinions. Our daughter loves him and is doing WONDERFUL because of Dr. Kestle!

While our 9yo was recovering from having a brain tumor removed, 6 different nurses told us that Dr. Kestle was their favorite doc to work with - expertise and bedside manner. He was also Primary's 2009 Physician of the year.
