Dr. Kickliter really listens to you and your physical ailments. He is very thorough and doesn't hesitate to refer you to the appropriate specialist. I've been going to him since we moved here in 2012 and wouldn't think of changing primary care physicians. He's the best!

Dr. Kickliter took as much time as needed with me, listened to my issues and aggressively provided treatment. He is well established and well respected in the medical community. He is tied in with and refers patients to highly regarded specialist. He is a family oriented person who treats his patients with dignity and respect. My only complaint is with the person who schedules referrals. I have had to be referred to four different specialist for various issues and in each time it took to long.

He was fine for minor problems like a sore throat or cold, but I do not trust his judgement on anything more complicated than that. He did not listen to me or seem to take any time to think through a difficult situation. He seemed to simply shove a pill at any problem and when that particular pill causes a problem, bam!....here's another pill to take car of that. I believe he has a god complex and is too self absorbed in himself to consider the thoughts, questions, and opinions of others.
in Sevierville, TN |
Poor communication and rapport. I do not feel as though he takes my concerns into consideration. He seems to be strictly a follow the protocol practitioner who simply dispenses pills rather than working with his patients to solve medical problems with nutrition, exercise, & lifestyle adjustments. If you are looking for someone to simply give you a pill and cure what is wrong, then he's your man. If you want someone who takes a more holistic approach, keep looking........I know I am.
