I found Dr Kieff very competent and able....... but he made a big mistake in his communication with me. He referred me for an MRI of my brain and instructed his assistant to call me to let me know the results were in, and make sure I attended the follow up consult with him to discuss the results. (This was in addition the frequent text reminders) . Buy the tone of the conversation I could only surmise that the test results were 'significant'. I was sure the results were serious (otherwise why a special call) and was quite anxious (sleepless nights) for 5 days leading to the meeting. In fact there was found a benign cyst. I explained to Dr Kieff that what the assistant SHOULD have said after he reminded me of the appointment, that "THERE WAS NOTHING THAT I SHOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT". Dr Kieff was receptive to my feedback. I am writing this comment now because it was a serious lapse that caused me emotional distress that could have been easily avoided.

Dr. Kieff and his team were amazing. I saw him for a rhinoplasty. He not only made my nose feel better but made matched exactly how I wanted it to look. The front desk staff always put a smile on your face. I saw multiple doctors before deciding to move forward with Dr. Kieff and very happy with my decision. Very organized and happy to answer any questions you have. He did an incredible job and listen to exactly what I wanted. I would highly recommend him a my whole family now sees him.

Dr Kieff is a phenomenal ENT he took the time to explain every nuance of the procedure and recovery, he takes time with his patients and doesn’t do whirlwind appointments that are over before they begin. I was very happy with my results and would highly recommend Dr Kieff for ENT / facial surgery.

I saw Dr. Kieff because I had a deviated septum. Needless to say, I'm breathing free and clear these days. Quick yet thorough, he won't waste your time and delivers quality care. Overall, I believe he is one of the most competent doctors I've had the pleasure of receiving care from.

I haven't seen Dr. Kieff in years because he is out of network. He took care of my sinus problems better than anyone. The best ENT ever and I frequently tell people to go see him. I may have to bite the cost of having a check up with him if I have any other issues.

Dr. Kieff is an incredible doctor. In January 2016 I finally had septoplasty and turbinates reductions surgery performed by him. My only regret is that I should have done it much, much earlier – I had trouble breathing through the nose for as long as I could remember. It was a life-changing experience for me to be able to always breathe through my nose freely. Many patients experience deterioration after that type of surgery, and sometimes thing go all the way back to where they were. I have not experienced any changes since the surgery for more than four years – Dr. Kieff is widely regarded to have golden hands. He also has awesome staff, is very thorough in his examinations, and a pleasure to deal with overall. I could not be happier and would recommend him and his staff to anyone.

So many good things to be said about Dr. Kieff and his staff. From the consultation to post op, Dr. Kieff and his team demonstrated professionalism, knowledge and expert care. Dr. Kieff performed a septoplasty and rhinoplasty along with turbinate reduction. The confidence I had in Dr. Kieff made surgery much less nerve racking. I am so happy with the results! I can breath better, no more drippy nose and the shape is just what I wanted, still me, but straightened out. He listened to what I wanted and provided his expertise for us to achieve the right results. I can't thank Dr. Kieff and his team enough. Absolutely recommend for anyone with ENT concerns or looking to for cosmetic surgery as he is certainly an expert in both!

Have tried others before seeing Dr Kieff but now will not see anyone else. I’ve had sinus surgery and facial injectables. Before I knew better I used to see a “top doc” dermatologist for injectables but what a difference it is to have Dr Kieff do it. Every procedure feels like it’s his most important. What a gem to find! Can’t recommend highly enough. Staff is also caring and conscientious.

Dr. Kieff performed my septoplasty and rhinoplasty surgery in November of 2014. Then, this past month, I returned to him because of some very uncomfortable inner ear issues. Dr. Kieff is a quick thinking, intelligent, and caring doctor, and he makes sure to provide his patients with amazing availability for any follow up questions or concerns. In addition, his office staff is made up of some of the kindest people I've ever met! I felt so well taken care of at Dr. Kieff's office!

Dr. Kieff is an outstanding physician with broad medical knowledge. He was able to make a quick diagnosis about a chronic illness and recommended that I receive immediate treatment. In addition, his expertise in his own field is without peer. His manner is always professional, but kind and thoughtful, as well. A wonderful person on all counts.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Kieff to anyone. Dr. Kieff is a top notch professional. He is warm, relaxed and lets you know what he's doing every step of the way. He guides the patient through the entire process (nose surgery) and makes it very easy to understand. My nose looks great - not a 'nose job' look at all.

Dr. Kieff has been an amazing doctor for me and my health needs. I had 2 deviated septum's and turbinate surgery July 2017 and it was the best decision I've made for my health. He took care walking me through steps to make sure surgery was the right course of action for me. Once it was determined I did need surgery, him and his team were so polite and kept me informed and worked with me through the process. I never felt overwhelmed or stressed. This was the best decision I made working with him

I had long standing issues with nasal polyps and allergies. I have had surgeries in the past but I found the experience very uncomfortable. My experience with Dr. Kieff's surgery was nothing but pleasant. His methodical approach for prepping me up (with proper medication) before the procedure made surgery a breeze. I was actually driving the very next day of my surgery. Within a week, I was back to doing my normal activities. The symptoms are gone and I feel great.
