Great Doctor and staff

I found Dr. Gessner very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. He is a specialist, however, so many of these survey questions did not really apply.

My visit was by telephone due to COVID-19. I was unsure how this would go; however, I was very pleased with the way we were able to talk and see each other. The appointment was very helpful, and I feel very good about the action Dr. Gessner has taken in helping me with my condition.

*Dr. Gessner is an ASSET to Cone Health. He provides excellent care. He listens and evaluates your concerns and even offers to refer you for other medical help if needed. A great physician.

I actually had a virtual (Zoom) appointment with Dr. Gessner to discuss scheduling Colonoscopy & Endoscopy that is due this year. That went very well and Dr. Gessner was very thorough with reviewing my past history and medications I am currently on and answering all my questions or concerns. Your office has called me and I will be following up to schedule these two procedures very soon.
