Absolutely my favorite Doctor EVER. And with all of my health condition , I have a lot of doctors. He is patient and kind and knew I was very nervous for surgery but really helped me through it. Amazing first impression and incredible bedside manner. We sure are blessed here in PA to have a doctor that knows what he is doing and truly cares about each patient! P.s. still in recovery and taking it day by day!

I saw Dr. Kriesel, once & then it was months to see him again. I came in April 2018. I waited in the waiting & exam room, drove round trip over 1hr. Bryce came in, did NOT know me. I was scheduled to meet with Dr. I left,terrible. Staff said he was in surgery. No one called me, No consideration for me. THey said it was their bad, "someone should have called you" but no one did. I still have trouble & medical problems (sinus, ears, nose). NOW, the desk, said JUNE. From April. Poor care. Dr. call.

Dr. Kriesel is hands down THE best ENT! I was a "special patient." I had many surgeries and a host of medical concerns. Nevertheless he always greeted me with a smile, allowed me to investigate alternative treatments, and was always kind. In fact, I needed a surgery after he left Texas. I proceeded looking up flights to head to Pa. My husband had to talk my pregnant hormonal self out of this craziness and I reluctantly searched for another ENT (took 3 tries). BEST ENT EVER!

I'm a few days away from being 66 years old; between 1996 and 2014 I've had 15 surgeries; Dr. Kevin Kriesel is by far my favorite physician and surgeon I've ever had in my six-plus decades of life! In one month, I will have another surgery; because of a right vocal cord paralysis, I have so much anxiety about surgical positioning and anaesthesia technique with VCP. I wish Dr. Kriesel was still in Austin, Texas! I am scared, and I know he could allay my fears.

Wow! Pennsylvania is lucky to have this doctor! What a truly phenomenal surgeon and person. He listens when no one else will and really knows what he is doing. The practice at Lehigh Valley Hospital needed someone like him who really cares about his patients. I am so thankful that I was able to have my surgery with him!

Dr. Kevin Kreisel is one of the best doctors I have seen. His knowledge is superb, and his bedside manners are second to none! Dr. Kreisel is great with adult patients and gentle with kids, too! When my 10 year old son expressed curiosity about a procedure I had during an office visit, Dr. Kreisel asked my son if he would like to take a look and then explained in simple terms what my son had seen! He was my ENT and my son's ENT for many years in Austin, TX. We wish him well in his new endeavor!
