Provider Review Comments

November 27, 2018
It was comfortable I liked the nurse (or whom ever) took care of me. The doctor is the 1st male I have trusted (I have had men take care of me in the past.)

This was my first visit. Dr. Gessner had been recommended to me. I was very happy with Dr. Gessner and will defefinately continue to come to this practice. He seemed very interested in trying to get an answer to my medical problem. And seemed very interested in helping me.

This was first visit to this office. I was very pleased with the staff and the doctor. Some questions are unanswered because it was my first visit. Have had many health care providers for different illnesses lately. This doctor is at the top of my list! Was completely pleased with the whole visit.

*Dr. Gessner did my colonoscopy three years ago & help me with hemorrhoid problem at this visit. He is an excellent, caring doctor who puts his patients at ease when dealing with potentially embarrassing problems. I highly recommend him! Staff & nurses are also very nice & knowledgeable.
