Dr Keefer has been my vascular surgeon for about 3 years. He has performed two surgeries and an angiogram with as good an outcome as you could expect given my significant disease ! He is concerned, compassionate and a talented physician and surgeon. The staff has always been kind, helpful and arranged things quickly! I am glad I found him to take care of me and I highly recommend him!

Dr Keefer is an excellent, compassionate and highly skilled surgeon. We are lucky to have such a highly trained surgeon in the area. I have worked directly and indirectly with him for 6 years and can confirm he is a fantastic surgeon and wound only do what is best for his patients.

Dr. Adam Keefer with Coastal Vascular and Vein Center performed a Left Renal Vein Transposition procedure on my just turned 19 year old daughter to treat her Left Renal Vein, aka Nutcracker, Syndrome. She died one week post op, a day after being discharged. He had ignored pleas from her and her father and I and deemed her "lazy". The coroner later found that during surgery two arterial branches that were not cut as part of the surgery had been ligated, resulting in her death.

Dr. Keefer has been treating me for pelvic congestion syndrome for about 6 months now. He is a brilliant doctor. He has fixed my issues while many doctors dismissed my concerns. He truly cares about his patients and is an example of what a doctor should strive to be.

As a new patient to the practice, I was seen promptly and to my surprise, the test that Dr. Keefer ordered was able to be completed in the office and he reviewed the results, outlined my treatment plan and I was able to obtain the needed supplies at the office.

The team in place that schedules new patient consultations at Coastal VVC is not trained to be customer centric. I made an appointment for a consultation several weeks ago for varicose veins after finding it through DocFind. A receptionist called me last week & cancelled it because she said the Doctor would not be in that day. She then transferred me to a voice mail last Wednesady to reschedule. I left a message on Wednesday and called again on Friday & still have not heard back.

Dr. Keeper said I was going to lose a foot or a toe and asked me which would it be. I told him if I was going to have to lose something start with the toe and after he amputated my toe another Vascular Surgeon told me I didn't need to lose my toe that there was nothing wrong with my circulation in my legs or toes! So,I suggest you be very careful!!
