The physicians and staff of Kessler Women’s Healthcare would like to welcome you to our medical practice and share with you what makes Kessler Women’s Healthcare a unique and exceptional place to receive women’s health care services.
After many years of sharing medical office space in solo practices, Kessler Women’s Healthcare was opened in 2008 at 1330 North Beckley Avenue in Dallas, TX. Our location was chosen for its proximity to Methodist Dallas Medical Center and convenient commute from anywhere in the metroplex. We offer private parking, but our office is also easily accessible by public transportation. Our goal was to create an environment that allowed us the rare opportunity to offer a different way to deliver women’s health services in a welcoming, calm space.
The four physicians at Kessler Women’s Healthcare are extensively trained and experienced specialists in obstetrics and gynecology services that includes care for women from adolescence through their post-menopausal years. Recognized experts in both laparoscopic and robotic surgery, our physicians have been honored by their peers and patients as Super Doctors in Texas Monthly magazine, Best Doctors in Dallas by D Magazine and Mom Approved by Dallas Child Magazine. In addition to their private practice work, they also serve as resident physician educators and have trained many area gynecology surgeons in robotic surgery, including single-site robotic surgery.
