in Houston, TX |
Dr. K is without any doubt the most caring,experienced,professional, and exceptional physician I have ever had the honor to know, even more so to have been operated on by him twice now. I recommend this magnificent yet humble gentleman surgeon to anyone that desires and requires the very finest surgeon. The Texas Medical Center needs to send their bypass gold standard surgeons here to study under the surgeon that makes them all look like novices. G. Scott McKissack, Houston TX.
I would like to thank you for your kind words. It is a privilege and an honor to be your doctor

Communicates well, answers all question and main part, he listens well. Great Doctor, very knowledgeable in all procedures. Gives the impression of caring, don't know for sure, only time really tells. But so far the best Doctor I've had in years. Would recommend to any one in need of his specialty. I feel like the Lord used him to really save my life!
It is my pleasure to recognize your most kind words. It is truly the LORD that guides my hands.
