Dr. Kitchen was literally the worst doctor I have ever worked with. His bedside manner and overall demeanor was unbelievably dismissive. He does not listen to what you say and can only hear himself speak. I’ll have to look at this hideous scar for the rest of my life. The pain is worse then before the surgery. Having him as my surgeon is one of the biggest regrets in my life.

I saw Dr Kitchen, due to a broken wrist. From the first appointment, I knew I was in good hands...no pun intended!! He is so kind. I was in surgery within a few days, due to his rescheduling to accommodate me. I needed a plate to hold my wrist bone together. He's a pro. It was a simple procedure but, I needed a bone graft. Dr. Kitchen did an amazing job, with minimal scaring. I had physical therapy, twice a week for therapy. Dr. Kitchen and staff are wonderful!
