She's a great listener who provides appropriate options with thorough explanations for each. I never felt rushed as she took the time to review everything carefully. Totally confident in her abilities and recommendations.

I absolutely love this woman. She is so understanding and listens when a patient says something is wrong. After 18 years Dr. Kilmer is the only one who actually figured out there was something seriously wrong with my back. I highly recommend her and the whole staff. What a great place.
