Dr. Koesters is one of the BEST primary care doctors I have ever met. He is not only very knowledgeable, but also has excellent bedside manner. All of my concerns were addressed and more! He spent (what seemed like) a long time with me, and did not seem rushed. He really listened to what I had to say. OSU should do whatever they need to in order to make sure they hang on to him!
