Dr Keefer is the Best doctor I've ever gone to she listens to me answers any questions I have she takes as much time with me as I need and when I need a recommendation of another doctor she gives me one right than she is very knowledgeable of what she's says I'm so glad I have her as my family physician I feel great when I leave her doctors office I feel like she's my miracle worker. I would recommend her to anyone I know.
in Covington, LA |
She does not prescribe medicine unless it is absolutely necessary. She also is very helpful in giving advice to deal with the insurance companies, which is rare to find in a physician these days. I've seen her for over 15 years and hope I can continue to see her for 50 more.
Mandeville, LA |
Gives totally of herself to help her patients.
