I saw Dr. Kier for joint pain and unexplained fevers. He immediately labeled me as drug seeking and told me there was no need to come back to see him. He did note that my joints were hypermobile, which was the first time I had heard this. After researching hypermobile joints, I found a geneticist who diagnosed me with Ehler's Danlos Syndrome, (EDS) which causes frequent joint dislocations and chronic pain! I am thankful he said the buzzword hypermobile but wish he was educated on EDS.

very friendly and knowledgeable Doctor......I had an 8 AM appointment time....the door was not even unlocked until 7:58.....the staff had to turn on the computers....go get their breakfast items....so I was not even checked in until 8:10....so much for the notice to be there 10 minutes before your appointment.....I asked if this was normal procedure....oh, yes.....I am always here by 8. (reception.....ok fine ...then don't schedule an appointment for a patient until you are ready to see someone!
