I had a very nice visit. The staff is very friendly and made me feel at home. Dr. Kistner was very informative. They did much more to help bring down the swelling in my feet and ankles than I would've expected on my first visit. I would definitely refer anyone to go see the highly experienced staff at Dr. Kistners Office.

So thankful for Dr. Kistner. After having a diognoses of no blood clots from hospital ER. I was sent to see Dr. Kistner by my primary Doctor where it was found I had a huge DVT from mid thigh to mid calf. I was to have traveled by air in 4 days. Had we have gone by hospital report I would have been on that plane and may not have been here to write this. Dr. Kistner listens to your concerns and answers all your questions. He is a very compassionate human being and a very passionate physician. ??
