"Dr. Kester is an amazing orthopedic surgeon who shows sincere interest in his patients. At every visit he listened patiently to my concerns; answered all questions and discussed best treatment options. I NEVER feel rushed during my visits with him. He genuinely cares about his patients and their wellbeing and his positive attitude is always reassuring. Additionally, everytime I communicated with him via MyChart he was very promt and thorough in his way of addressing my questions and concerns no matter how easy or complicated they were. I HIGHLY recommend him to all my friends/family members and I have already passed on his name to few neighbors. Doctors like him are hard to find and I hope he stays at Duly for a very long time."
