Ed Thayer in Penrose, Colorado – May 03, 2018
Dr. Kissell showed genuine concern and care regarding my condition. She spent the time I needed to ask questions and gain the information and understanding necessary to treat my condition. She has a gentle approach as well as a sense of humor (which is very important to me). She and her staff relate very well with each other and with patients and their families. Her staff epitomizes patient service. On a scale of 1-10 they rate a 10+.
