Dr. Kiesler was very thorough in his exam and explaining the rationale for each examination and was very easy to speak with. Unlike other physicians I have encountered in my 30 year battle with arthritis, he was in no hurry to finish or move on to the next patient.

Dr. Kiesler is always amazing with my son. He understands my son's commitment to getting back to sports so Dr. Kiesler works with him to balance proper care with the daily activities of a very active boy. Dr. Kiesler understands the reality of a patient's life and is excellent at helping the him manage his recovery.

I had been to Dr. Kiesler before for a thumb problem and remembered his care, concern and medical knowledge so I felt very confident returning to him for a new medical concern.

The doctor was late and he did apologize for the wait. He abruptly answered my questions, a couple of them in a sarcastic way that did not totally answer. I am disappointed.

I had seen Dr Keisler twice in the past (I am old and apparently fall on my wrists every two years) He evaluated the problem quickly and explained what was visible in the x-ray. He seemed as happy as I was to let me know it was not a break but arthritis. He gave me several suggestions for dealing w/ arthritis and told me to return for a splint if I needed too. I was really happy with every aspect of this visit.
