Dr. Keitz cares more about his patients than most doctors I have encountered.

Dr. Kietz is always amazing! he continues to impress us every visit! He always is so thoughtful to spend time asking about her life aside from her injury and break the ice and make her feel comfortable. As a mom this means so much to me to see he loves kids this much to get to know them and comfort them in conversation. He always is very thorough and spends time with us in evaluation and discussing diagnoses and his approach to healing. He is such a joy to talk to and I always feel he cares and is very knowledgeable. It is quite a Drive and process to get appts. at this dept. & I always feel it was well worth the drive to get such great care. and his nursing staff is always good about getting scheduled for appts. in a timely manner when he needs to see her. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kietz. Children's Hospital is blessed to have such a wonderful, thoughtful, knowledgeable Dr. who works so well with kids and people.

I was vey impressed with Dr. Keitz. After doing much research on all the specialists I felt his background would best fit my child's needs for care. He is very personable and knowledgeable and works well with the patients and parents. He listened to my concerns as a parent in regards to bio medicines. As a parent it usually takes a couple of visits for feel comfortable with a doctor but with him I knew right after our visit he was the doctor that would be able to help my daughter.
