What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Kistler, PHD
I am very satisfied with the care I received under Dr. Kistler for 2-3 years. Very professional. He was right on in identifying my issues and getting to the point. He is reserved (there were times I thought he could say more) but the words he speaks are of great value. I greatly appreciate his help in identifying past trauma, increasing my confidence, getting through emotional times, and later listening to my babble. His wisdom and calm, reserved, nature was very comforting
