Charlotte, NC |
Within minutes of meeting Dr. Kistler in the CMC Pineville ICU where I was admitted with severe pneumonia, it became abundantly clear to me that she is devoid of compassion, arrogant and condescending. Her clinical acumen and judgement are suspect as her dire prediction that I "would definitely be intubated" was, to her apparent dismay the following morning on "rounds" (spending all but 3 minutes in my room), proven incorrect--A BiPAP mask spared me. She fails as a physican on all levels.
