    I was a patient of Dr. Kaiser almost 20 years ago when I had a bi- lateral lung collapse while hiking in very high altitude. I had bi lateral bleb resection and pleuradisis and literally left the hospital post operation in less than 24 hours, which is apparently unheard of. I have never once had a single issue related to my lungs and I attribute that to Dr. Kaiser. I would highly endorse him based on my immediate and long term results, his surgical skills and in depth knowledge.

    Was a patient of Dr. Kaiser's, have no idea who would give him any review below a 4.5 or 5, in honesty. It seems like one or two outliers and too few reviews to create the average on this HG. He is perhaps one of the best Thoracic surgeons in the country, one is lucky to have him as a surgeon and he is still practicing in a leadership role... as someone who has had CT surgeons from UCLA, UCSF and Penn, he was the best in terms of professionalism, education, diagnosis/treatment plan and ability.
