Robbed of the birth experience

I felt treated like a number, Dr. Kessler had very little time to address my concerns and I needed a lot more support as this was a first pregnancy. He basically intimidated me into a planned C-section, which the pediatrician questioned upon seeing my baby and I in my guts to this day believe to have been unnecessary. He stripped me of an unrepeatable experience. I felt completely robbed.

Great through the lifespan

Dr. Kessler has been my doctor from before I was married. He cared from me during my pregnancies with such compassion and his expertise proved essential in my succesful outcomes. Now he cares for me in menopause and his compassion and expertise has again provided succesful outcomes. He is a doctor for a woman's whole lifespan!

The best!

Dr. Kessler has been my doctor for the past 20 years. He delivered both my kids 13 years ago. I still see him twice a year for gynecological issues. I recommend him highly. Very knowledgeable and professional and the best bed side manner a doctor can have!
