Sent us to Henry Ford Clinic attached to his office on Lake Dr. So unfit for diagnosis. His ego is bigger than the universe. Went to UofM #1 hospital in Michigan for proper diagnosis. Kieff's bedside manner is aweful, so is staff.

As someone who already felt uncomfortable in hospitals before this procedure, this experience definitely just made it worse. The staff in this facility were not friendly. The appointment felt rushed and I did not feel that the doctor or nurses thoroughly assessed my symptoms before just throwing me into the procedure. They said the endoscopy was clear and they took a biopsy to check for a single food allergy(which I do not have), but didn’t give me the opportunity to ask the doctor any questions, make testing requests, or to present what I thought the problem might be. Would not recommend.

His bedside manner is trash, he knew nothing about my case, walked in before my procedure, snapped at me, didn't answer questions, swooped out again leaving me in tears before I went under anesthesia, forcing the nurses and anesthesiologist to comfort me and reassure my husband before my scope, hile I was still under, he brusquely returned to rudely tell my husband nothing was wrong with me, (there was, he didn't LOOK hard enough) and swept away again, leaving us both feeling disgusted, angry, etc. He is THE WORST doctor I have ever encountered in the entire SHMG community. 0/10 would recommend.

Dr. Puff is the best. He always takes the time to listen to concerns, and takes the time to explain things fully as well. You can't find anyone better!

Janet Morningstar – Feb 09, 2020

Gastroenterology
It took months to get in, months to get the scopes, and the vague notes left on the DC paperwork instructed me to take a ineffective med that I was already on. Follow up was scheduled months out, and attempts to determine if the areas of concern set by the NP months prior were addressed resulted in a negative response from the nurse and Dr. Meisner. Despite an internist and pulmonologist directing me to go back for treatment of my GI issue, Dr. Meisner basically said my issues were all in my head. His diagnosis is based on a conversation he had with me while I was sedated during my scopes. Serum tests and CT scans were not reviewed, but when pointed out Dr. Meisner stated I needed to follow up on those issues. Horrifyingly unprofessional.

I have been Dr. Meisner's patient for several years. He is always well-informed about my issues, listens carefully, is clear with information, always makes me feel comfortable, is compassionate, unhurried and very attentive. I cannot thank him and his group enough for such great service.

Colonoscopy was more uncomfortable than others I have had in past. Neither he or his o.r. staff seemed very patient oriented or compassionate.

Dr. Kieff and his staff were fantastic. They all were very calming and fun to be around, which helped a ton with nerves! I would recommend Dr. Kieff to anyone who needs gastro procedures done, especially if one tends to be more anxious about doctors appointments in general. Great guy!

Dr. Kieff is not a doctor that I would recommend. He did the bare minimum, rudely. In the recovery room after the procedure he did on my husband he acted inconveniced that I asked him questions about follow up and aftercare. He did not spend more than 5 minutes with us. My husband was under Anastasia and asked the same question three times and the doctor rolled his eyes and gave an mocking laugh. 3 months later we called with a concern and he suggested we keep doing nothing.

He is awful. He has made my experiences absolutely miserable. I spent two days crying after dealing with him. He is arrogant and rude, I tried to follow up to ask him questions and I felt bullied and attacked. He is unprofessional and I would NEVER recommend him to anyone!
