A good man

Even though waits can be a bit long, once he arrives, Dr. Kayser is efficient, kind, caring, and thorough. His words of encouragement have meant as much to me as his medical advice. He is not only a good physician; he is a good man with a good soul.

Terrible bedside manor

I have seen Dr Kayser for 7 years and will not return. He does not listen and pokes fun in inapproiate ways. He would not release me to see another MD in his group. He is hateful and my granddaughter witnessed him poking fun at my sister. His receptionist is very rude on the phone and does not take the time to listen. That being said, his nurse is great.
