I took my infant to him for tongue and lip tie and was told that he didn't feel she had tongue tie. He also stated that he would not do a lip tie procedure at this time. I found another facility who specializes in tongue and lip tie and they performed the procedure that day. She was stage 4 lip tie and stage 2 tongue tie (now gaining weight). I feel that with other procedures he would be a great Dr and have heard nothing bad about him but I feel that he is not confident in the above procedures

Dr. Kest is extremely knowledgeable. He was genuinely concerned for my health and longevity, and preformed an operation that drastically improved my breathing. He also helped refer me to a GI doctor for concerns of my persistent acid re-flux. He is a top notch doctor, has a very caring demenur, and overall was excellent to work with.

My husband was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. He was referred to Dr. Kest by out FNP. Dr. Kest thoroughly explain the surgery. He spent time making sure we understood everything. My husband's surgery was much more complicated than expected, because their were tiny hair like veins wrapped around his thyroid. As a result, the surgery went longer than anticipated. Dr. Kest sent his nurse to the waiting room to chat with us, to explain what was going on. He didn't leave us hanging.

Wonderful Dr. and a very caring and kind man. Thoroughly explained my cancer and answered all my questions. Operated on my throat cancer with a robot and did an excellent job, saved my life. I can't say enough good things about him.

I had an appointment with Dr. Kest today, and he was so great. Not only was he right on time, but he really took the time to address the issues I was having, and explained everything well. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

I chose Dr Kest over my primary care physicians referral and I am so happy I did. Another doctor found a lump in my throat and that can be very unsettling. Dr Kest was so reassuring, gave me a great explanation of my condition and I was able to get in to see him 3 days after my biopsy. He was right on which made the wait so much easier to get through... along with prayer of course. Love that he walked in announcing no cancer!
