What People Say About Dr. Jonathan Kiev, MD
RecentMost Helpful
In May 2018, I was diagnosed with lung cancer. After extensive research, I chose to have my surgery at UK . I chose Dr. Johnathan Kiev to perform my surgery. His impressive background and my first meeting with Dr. Kiev assured me I made the right choice. I found him kind, caring, concerned about my well being, and willing to take time to thoroughly explain my options. Dr. Kiev performed my surgery and the outcome was excellent. Dr. Kiev saved my life. I highly recommend. W. Lile Frankfort

Dr. Kiev performed my lung VATs surgery in December 2017 at the University of Kentucky Hospital. He did an awesome job on my surgery and I only had 1 incision, when I was expecting 3. He was kind enough to give me his cell phone number, which I did use for questions after being discharged from the hospital. I would highly recommend Dr. Kiev! :)

Dr. Kiev was personable, and thorough. He communicated with me and my family throughout the entire process of my daughter's surgery. His bedside manner was great as well as his sense of humor. I would recommend Dr Kiev. And though I never want to have him perform surgery on my daughter again, if surgery was necessary to save my dughterXScale life, I would definitely go to Dr. Kiev.
