    I have been a patient of Dr Kist for many, many years. Without this man's talent, I would not be here today. In my world HE'S THE BOSS. Living with COPD is not fun. His recommended treatment plan has kept me active. Can't say enough good about him. If you are one of the patients waiting awhile for your appointment, Dr Kist is probably working on someone who needs his attention.....I've been that patient several times.
