Dr Kiesler and his nurse Patty were excellent-exceeded expectations. Explained everything, not rushed, presented treatment options, and reasons for his recommendation. Exceptional. So glad I found him!

Highly intelligent, incredibly knowledgeable, gives patients his undivided attention when you are with him. He listens willingly to patients even if to him the comments and questions seem routine. I have complete faith in him and often recommend him to others. Both my daughter, my Mother and I have seen him several times for a variety of reasons and our experiences have all been positive.

I wouldn't bother to visit this doctor unless you know for sure that you specifically need a hand surgery because he is not interested in the overall well being of the patient. Overall, curt behavior, like you are completely wasting his time even being there for a short 15 min appointment.

This was my third hand surgery with Dr. Kiesler, all for dupuytrens contractures . I simply can't say enough good things about him, his staff, and the consistent positive outcomes I've experienced. He is an excellent doctor. Their hand therapists are outstanding as well.

Two weeks ago I fractured my right ring finger Dr Kiesler placed a plate and 10 screws in one inch of my finger. Pain before surgery but never after. In only 2 weeks I have 90 % function of my finger and hand. Highly skilled surgery. Excellent office staff. 5 stars from me. PG

It was easy to get an appointment...maybe too easy? His medical assistant ordered x-rays that he did not even review until long after after my appointment. Nice way to increase revenue, and perhaps a tell-tale sign of a poorly managed practice. Thanks for jacking up my insurance premiums by having an unqualified person order unnecessary rads. Dr. Kiesler was brief, abrupt, and obviously in a hurry. Cha-ching.

Dr. Kiesler is very good. The results of my arm surgery are great, and his discussions with me are always complete and direct while light enough to be enjoyable. I strongly recommend him.

Dr. Kiesler was an excellent surgeon that I would highly recommend. He performed carpal tunnel release. The pain was minimal and the scarring is very slight. I thought Dr. Kiesler was very warm and caring and answered all my questions.

Not very friendly and does not like when you have questions...very standoffish, kind of pompous. Not too concerned with patients comfort.

Dr. Kiesler has treated my son for 2 broken arms now that both needed to be reduced. He has been a wonderful doctor and so kind with my son and so careful with his arm to make sure that his mobility in the future is the best possible. Even though he had a full day and into the evening in his clinic, he came in at 6:30 in the morning just so my son would not have to go all day without eating before the procedure. He is both an excellent physician and a very kind man.

Dr. Kiesler has seen my son a few times. He is very patient and caring. My kids all love going to see him. He was able to perform surgery on his elbow and he has full use of his arm after 2 other doctors told us he probably would not get his motion back.

Very happy with my experience. My situation was rare and urgent and Dr Keisler was very calm and relaxed which kept me calm. I did have a second opinion by one of the top hand surgeons in Illinois at The University of Chicago and he made it very clear how urgent the surgery was which freaked me out a little bit. I scheduled the surgery right away with Dr Kiesler. He was very kind, patient, answered all my questions, and a very great surgeon. My wrist is doing great!
