Dr. Kaiser is extremely thorough, very respectful, and communicates clearly. She patiently worked with me, taking my priorities into account, to find the best treatment option for me. Dr. Kaiser provides excellent care. Also, the practice can provide many tests (x-rays, blood draw) on site, thereby obtaining results quickly or immediately and therefore speeding the care process.

There is no concern or real care for patient support and treatment. Over-testing, over-billing and a lack of consideration for the patients needs and concerns. Many specialists who understand there must be patient-doctor dialogue and that being dismissive and condescending to a patient is not the way to establish a trusting relationship. Apparently being respectful is not D. Dr. Kaiser's style. She has little respect for her clients, does not listen and fail to provide adequate treatment.

Excellent. Rarely has a doctor taken as much time to study mt existing paperwork and listen to previous medical consultations which had lead to getting her advice. I am extremely hopeful that we will be finally getting to the bottom of my issue. She even went over my existing xrays with me to explain what she saw and counseled me. I am hopeful that things will turn around now, a feeling I have not experienced in a long time. It took more time to get an appointment with her than I had hoped.

I was referred due to blood test results during my pregnancy. During my visit, Dr. Kaiser did not take the medical history I relayed seriously. She had me do additional blood testing (on what I already told her was my issue) to "make sure" and low and behold my results came back positive and I was stuck with an extremely expensive medical bill to boot. Shame on me for second guessing myself. I wasn't taken seriously and had to pay for it.

At my first appointment with Dr Kaiser she spent 40 minutes with me. She listened closely, took careful notes about my symptoms and concerns, and was extremely thorough in her questions, analysis, and explanations. I was very impressed by her knowledge and, specially, her bedside manner. I would recommend her 100%.
