VERY disappointed by Dr. Keet. I saw him for years until he prescribed me medications that were contra-indicated, which may have been what led to my heart arrhythmias (which horrified his colleagues when I was in the ER). He also did not treat my pre-diabetes, which is now standard (and which shocked numerous colleagues) and kept me on outdated pain meds. I found him kind and funny, but VERY unlikely to be proactive. My health is greatly improved with more proactive and up-to-date medical care. He's not BAD, but I believe he's not up to par.

I feel fortunate to be one of Dr. Keet's patients for the last 3+yrs. In addition to being an excellent and skilled physician he is patient and kind. He answers questions and listens to concerns and provides helpful information. I am certain I will receive the best of care. A friend told me that Dr. Keet once saved her life when she was a patient in the ER. Also in the past I was an ER patient several nurses and doctors commented on Dr. Keet's expertise saying that he is highly respected.
