Dr Kevin Gietzen is courteous as is the office staff, He took the time to discuss his diagnostic impression with me. He feels my dry sore mouth is caused by Parkinson's and the meds I'm on for it. He said he would send a letter to Dr Robert Levy, describing his impressions and discussing what he thinks might help me. I use an OTC supplement containing turmeric which is believed to reduce chronic pain. I wasn't getting much rest. Dr. Gietzen informed me that turmeric is known to cause a burnin

Dr Gietzen is pleasant and informative. He does listen to the patient and then gives medical advice. My only issue has been with connecting to a medical person when a medical question or issue arises. When calling with an urgent issue and a message is left on the nurse phone is not returned until the end of the day no matter the urgency indicated by the patient. Otherwise I have had not issues with this office.
