Review for Dr. Kaiser

Dr. Nassif has performed both of my hip replacements, the last in May of this year. I have had excellent results from his operations. The entire experience was well-organized.

Jerry Chilton, Cedar Rapids Jul 17 2024

Review for Dr. Nassif

I had planned to visit with 3 surgeons before choosing one to have a hip replacement. Dr. Kaiser was the first visit and last. His demeanor was so warm and he actually took the time to listen. I walked out of there, had my surgery the next week & am so grateful. He's simply the best!

Kim Thompson Jul 16 2024

Review for Dr. Kaiser

I fully trust and recommend Dr. Sullivan. He and his staff explained everything in a way that I could understand. I can't express in words just how pleased I have and continue to be through this journey with Dr. Sullivan.

Review for Dr. Sullivan

I went to Dr. Dempewolf for foot problems and he was very through and explained everything so I would understand it.
