"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."

"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!"
