I was admittedly 8 mins late for my first appt with this doctor. They cked and said they would see me, I was within their 10 min time limit. They took me to an exam room. I waited for over an hour.Not 1 person came to see or ck on me. I went looking for a nurse or someone. The nurse said it was such a long wait because I was late. She was rude and said it would be another 1/2 hour. It was an hour before I saw the Doc, he was arrogant and twice as rude. I would advise anyone to find a diff Doctor

If selecting a doctor for a colonoscopy, Dr. Kieff would be fine. If you have IBD (Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis), you will want a doctor who will do his best to save your colon and keep current with the latest advances in treating autoimmune diseases. He's a big fan of colectomy as a cure when it only removes the immune system's misguided target. Rather than listen to or examine his patient, Dr. Kieff was quick to whip out a prescription pad missing a fistula. You can do better.

Dr. Kieff & his staff were very professional, & took time to listen to me and what is going on, he recommended several options to try.

I've seen Dr.Kieff for 3 years for a condition that wakes me up at 3am from a sound sleep. It starts with sweating out towels, puke severely and awful diarrhea. This goes on for 3 hours. After it ends, I have to stay on the couch with blankets because I can't get warm for hours. This happens 10 days (minimum) of every month. I was back in his office 2 weeks ago and was told to see his understudy Luke who told me I don't have IBS w/D. yesterday his nurse never called to order my new Meds. Ugh!

Dr. Kieff knew that I had recently had surgery and was on opioids. He yelled at me after the colonoscopy that it was a dirty colonoscopy but I was ok. He would repeat in three years. He was concerned about my inability to swallow and said if it continued to call and he would get me in for a endoscopy. He schedulers were lax to the extreme rude and by the time my appointment came up I had to cancel it because I had dropped over thirty pounds. Office staff does not know who pays them rude rude.

Dr. Kieff was my third colonoscopy doctor and by far the best. He and his nurses were attentive, professional and sensitive to my comfort. It was a pleasant and painless experience and I will have no hesitancy about going back to him in the future.
