Internal medicine allows me to connect with people at times in their lives where they are most vulnerable and in need of help. I enjoy the challenge of diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of emergent and nonemergent problems. The secret to this calling is being able to connect with the patients on a personal level. Once you are able to make that connections, it is no longer work.

Very thorough, and makes sure you feel comfortable about the outcome.
My visit went smoothly and all my questions were answered
Dr. Bessler is the best dr. I've ever dealt with
Dr Bessler is at the top of the list of excellence in healthcare, a talented and caring doctor.
Dr. Bessler is the BEST!!
Dr. Bessler is very attentive to my explanation of issues. He listens! I've been to other practices where the attending physician is alway looking at a screen and not the patient. This is not the case at Lively.
Dr. Bessler may be my doctor, but he feels like a friend.
