Conscientious, good listener--getting to root of issues. Helpful, understanding, and responsive.

Seems like a very competent, pleasant guy, though it's hard to get an appointment.

May 11, 2017

Frankly, have never experienced such care before. Wish all were this thorough and patient; did not feel like we rushed, and he addressed each and every questions and concern raised. He provided a full review of what we discussed and next steps. Could not be better.

Very attentive and good operation despite the large volume of patients handled. Well organized

I had pretty high expectations for my appointment with Dr. Kristo and he absolutely exceeded them. Rarely do doctors take so much time with their patients as he did with me. I would not hesitate a second to recommend him to a friend.

Dr Kristo was very helpful in addressing my sleep apnea and asthma/ breathing issues; he gave me helpful directions that I can use. He went above and beyond to assist me to find a quality specialty practice near my new location in Virginia. He made sure I felt welcome to see him again if necessary, and welcomed my husband to make an appointment with him re: husband's sleep apnea.

Dr Kristo and staff were very friendly and showed concern for my health
