Patient Comments (5)
in Overgaard,Az |
Dr Kistner was the most attentive Dr who cared for me last week at Banner Desert. He explained every event to my husband and I throughly. I appreciated his kindness and expertise.
Phoenix, AZ |
Dr Kistner provides inadequate care and communication to patients. Care instruction, what to expect, prognosis after surgery not provided or a concern. His explanations before and after surgery were vague. Office staff (Lilly) is rude , my attempt to arrange for post op care info from kistner were argued and stymied, she blamed the lack of it on the nurse at the hospital and my wife. Request for a call from Kistner were refused, upon insistence ignored. I agree, what a Joke. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE

Highly recommend, stayed the course, visited the patient daily in hospital until discharge. A 9 or 10 on the scale.
I was hospitalized for a week. Met with Kistner several times trying to decide if I needed surgery. He was extremely inadequate in explanations as to what was happening and how they were going to proceed. My PCP gave me all of the information I needed and answered my questions directly. In addition, I have PPO insurance that Dr. Kistner works with and accepts their cost for payment. I continue to receive a bill for the portion the insurance did not cover. What a Joke - UNPROFESSIONAL
in Mesa, AZ |
Does not keep his patients informed with their cases. Each time I saw him he talked TO me ( not allowing me to talk) for a MAXIMUM of 4 minutes. I will never see Dr.(I will never bestow such a title to such a person) Kiistner again and I would recommend you steer clear from any enrollment with him.
