Best doctor - truly. I was under his care from 2013 for several years. He brings honesty, humor and care to his work. He was there for my mom and helped me find my strength. It was extremely hard for me to trust other doctors after his care. He works hard and cares hard. Sets the bar high.

Dr. Kiwan also saved my life in 2015 and again now. Routine blood work suggested I had AML. Dr. Kiwan's staff got me in his office to do a bone marrow biopsy within two days. Excellent bed side manner and the kindest dr I have ever had.

I love him. Dr. Kiwan saved my life. I've never met a doctor that cares about his patients like he does. You're not just a chart or room # to him. The best bedside manner I've ever seen. Very smart intelligent man.
