He’s an excellent doctor. He’s very thorough and explains things well. He’s excellent at what he does and takes the time to listen. He lets you make up your own mind about surgeries etc. in other words he’s not pushy.

Although I had to wait 3 months for my appointment ( which was not his fault, it is a ROC issue) I was very pleased with the appointment. Things went smoothly & quickly. Information was provided to me, I was a part of my treatment plan decision. I would recommend him to family & friends.

Dr.Kaiser repaired a torn UCL as a result of a skiing injury. I would highly recommend him and would not hesitate to use him again! Additionally, the p.t. staff at ROC is awesome! :)
