Dr. Kietz is an excellent provider. Kind, compassionate, professional and extremely knowledgeable. It was Friday afternoon at 5 and he was not rushed at all. Can't tell you how much I appreciate that.

Valued my ideas of lifestyle changes I wanted to make.

Dr. Kurtz is an excellent doctor. He takes time with my child and makes sure we understand completely what the medicines are prescribed for and how they work.

Dr. Kietz is the best rheumatologist I've had the pleasure of dealing with! If it weren't for him, my son may not be alive and well today.

Dr. Kietz is the absolute best. My kids both love him, he spends more time than necessary talking with them, and he is just the most caring doctor we have ever dealt with.

January 02, 2018

I have been seeing Dr. Kietz for over 10 years and am always impressed with his level of attention and care. Even though I only see him for routine visits now, about once a year, he always remembers details about my personal life as well as my medical history. He makes me feel like I am truly being taken care of by a doctor who is looking out for me in all aspects of my life.
