    Dr. Kasten has been my doctor for 25 years and I can't imagine going anywhere else. He has delivered all 3 of my children. He always takes his time, explains everything to me in a language I can understand ( not technical medical jargon) and always asks if I have any questions or concerns. He truly cares about me and my healthcare. He gives me options, explains them in detail and together we decide the treatment path to travel. I think Dr. Kasten is wonderful and I am thrilled he is my doc.

    I would never go back to this doctor and would not recommend him. He did not demonstrate partnership, empathy, or respect. He was however, arrogant, condescending & dismissive of my concerns. There was no closure to the encounter. When he left the room, I waited several minutes to see if he was returning. I left the visit in tears after such a combative and degrading encounter. I had to schedule an appointment with a different doctor to address my original concerns.
