Excellent doctor and excellent staff. While my procedure was considered cosmetic, this was very necessary for use of my CPAP machine.

Dr. Kienstra and his staff are the best! He has done 2 nasal surgeries on me and both turned out great. The surgical suite in his office made the procedures very private and I really felt like I was their only patient. They are amazing. I truly am grateful to have found such a great, kind and funny doctor to do my surgeries. Thank you for all you and your staff do Dr. Kienstra :)
