    Dr Kister and his office failed me miserably. He misdiagnosed me with multiple sclerosis in 2011. He refused to do a spinal tap but had no problem treating me with toxic medication. I then begged for a spinal tap. I contacted his office even the office social worker and got no response at all. I then received a package from the office with all my records. I do not have multiple sclerosis. I have chronic Lyme's disease. I found out because I doctor did a spinal tap on me and tested me .
