I had medication question it was answered and I'm to have blood work in two weeks to monitor them to see if they are ok or need adjusted. very nice office. everyone very helpful and friendly. didn't make me nervous very comfortable.

I like Dr.K, but sometimes I feel his mind is elsewhere when I talk to him I don't tolerate meds very well: it takes my body time to adjust to new medicine. I'm not sure he believes me. I think he knows "his stuff", but he needs to understand not all people react the same way to medicine!

February 21, 2018

I tried talking to the doctor about important issues going on in my life. he interrupted me and continued talking while I was trying to speak.
