Dr Kasten was terrible! I am a high risk pregnancy, and when I brought my concerns to the table he told me I was pregnant not diseased and to get over it. Needless to say I switched OB's brought my concerns to her, she did lab work to find out I was severely anemic!! To the point I needed iron transfusions. I will never recommend him to anyone, not even my worst enemy. I will gladly drive to Sandusky to avoid dealing with him!

During my entire pregnancy he acted like my questions were unimportant and he had better things to do. It wasn't just one visit, it was all of them. He has no bedside manner and would completely ignore my husband or whoever was in the room with me, even if they had questions. I felt completely stressed during labor & delivery. He didnt care if I was uncomfortable. The only thing they cared about was I continue to push, even if it meant not breathing!

I would never go back to this doctor and would not recommend him. He did not demonstrate partnership, empathy, or respect. He was however, arrogant, condescending & dismissive of my concerns. There was no closure to the encounter. When he left the room, I waited several minutes to see if he was returning. I left the visit in tears after such a combative and degrading encounter. I had to schedule an appointment with a different doctor to address my original concerns.
