Dr Besser is great. He's detailed oriented, communicates very well, explains clearly, and also right to the point. Then he got right to it, allayed my fear of the Cortisone injection, and just got it done. I really like that.

Dr. Besser walked in and already knew what my A1C number was and he then he checked on how I have been since my last injection. He gave me options and allowed me to make the decision on my care. He completed the injection and let me know if any issues to contact him.

Dr. Besser listened to my concerns that I might need hip replacement surgery, and explained that the hip pain I feel is in a different spot. He suggested a cortisone shot, if I'd like, and it worked very well. He told me that if the pain returns, I may be able to get another shot, and gave me a number to call if I needed to schedule another appointment in a month or so. I believe I will be scheduling that shot.
