"Dr. Kester is fantastic! He took the time himself to call me about my MRI results and didn't have someone else call me. He listened as I voiced my concern about not wanting a steroid injection. He understood, took time in answering my questions and then explained what the issue was. He showed me the MRI results and the wall charts all while explaining what the issue was. I never felt rushed. I would recommend him to others!"
