DOCTOR... I have been with Dr. Thomas Kiefhaber for many hand, wrist and most recently an Ulnar Nerve surgery at my Elbow... over the last 10+ years. I can't imagine a better surgeon for these types of procedures. And know what else he and his staff have the audacity to do... they listen to what the patient has to say and I truly feel they care about me as an individual person!!! Even my son and daughter complement Dr. K on his interaction with them when he talks with them after my surgery.

I have had many years of care with a variety of hand problems and surgeries. The Doc has fixed them and I was able to keep working. He was honest with his words and the results of surgery expectations. I have recommended him to many people over the years. A talented and good man with an efficient and caring staff. I appreciate the fact he listened to my concerns, As a hairdresser my hands are my career of 47 years and are still working!

Dr. Kiefhaber came highly recommended. i found him to be professional and personable, He also showed interest in me as a person. He was cautious about surgery and explained the upside and potential downside to surgery. As an engineer, I like to understand the details of how things work and what exactly was done during surgery. When i asked questions during post op appointment, he didn't offer much detail. On my way out, I asked for the surgical report and did my own research online.

I would have liked a little more explanation of what to expect and what would be good preventive actions to take to ensure no further damage. No questions were asked about the type of activities I do so I not sure if this can reaccure.

Dr. Kiefhaber is an excellent surgeon. My outcome from bilateral carpel tunnel release could not be better. Twelve weeks post-surgery and I am doing everything I want or need to do. I am sleeping through the night which I haven't been able to do for years. My incisions are barely visible. I could not have imagined an outcome this positive. I highly recommend Dr. Kiefhaber.

Dr. Kiefhaber is very personable. He answered all of my questions. After my last surgery I was going on vacation so he used dissolving stitches so I wasn't bothered with them. He also took into consideration I would be gone so I was allowed to do my follow-up a few days later than he recommended. I know several people that have had carpal tunnel surgery and their hands look like they were chewed up, but you can't even see my scars. I would highly recommend Dr. Kiefhaber to any one.

Dr Kiefhaber is spectacular. He is very caring and knows what he's doing. I have surgery twice on my finger from another surgeon. Then I went to Dr Kiefhaber and he fixed my finger on the first try. I couldn't say enough good about him.

I've had two hand surgeries and all options each time were clearly explained. Dr Kiefhaber always took time to answer questions and explained in detail what options I had. The office and surgical staff were always kind and attentive to my needs.
