Dr. Bessette has been my doctor for the past 30 years, and I couldn't find a better physician. He's friendly, courteous, listens to you, and discusses the treatment for the problem.

Dr. Bessette was able to diagnose and explain both of my health complaints and provide a plan of care while still making me feel like a valuable person rather than just a problem to solve. I really appreciate is style of care.
