Review for Dr. Kiefer

Been with Dr Coburn since 1990 or earlier. He literally saved me from dying from a heart attach. I can into his office when a friend told me I needed a doctor quick. He took me right in and checked out and a few days later I had a 5 vessel heart bypass. Plus he is a sweet heart of a man.
