Dr. Kitchener, took time to exam and explain my condition. He did not rush, but took time to answer my questions. He went over my test results in great detail. I was please and relieved that there was solution for me very serious problems with dizziness and being unbalance and unable to drive. I am fine and driving again and not stumbling and falling.

In Feb 2014 I had brain anyurisms and stroke, in comma for almost two months. According to my husband Bob Dr. Kitchner saved my life. Even left his skiing vacation to come and take care of me. I never got to meet him, or I don't remember if I did, then he transferred out of Miami Valley Hospital before my follow up appt. Dr. Kitchner Thank You and God Bless!!!!!!

Over 2 years ago my wife missed an appointment due to her M.S. here.That morning she couldn't get out of bed. Of course I couldn't cancel with a 24 hr notice. So I went to the office to explain my wife's condition having 40 scars and active lesions. They stated come back after 1 year with a new referral. We did that and still got refused care. I tried again here recently and they said not at all because they moved patient appointments to fit her in on her original appointment. Rude staff !
