Dr. Kaiser was able to explain what needs to be done and what could arise after surgery so I don’t have any surprises

Review for Dr. Kaiser

I was a bit nervous about seeing him. Who wants to see a neurosurgeon about an aneurism that shows up on a Cat scan? Dr. Sattar was so good at explaining, and putting me at ease. Many thanks, Dr. Sattar.
