Dr.K is extremely well trained and makes me feel very comfortable with my plan of care. He takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns, without making me feel rushed. My family and I feel very safe in his capabilities to ensure I am treated with the best of care. He has been an amazing addition to St. Francis and the community.

Outstanding cardiologist. Moved to the area from a large city where I had seen several other cardiologists. I've had heart trouble for 15 years. He is by far the best I've seen. Very skilled and patient. Excellent bedside manner.
