Specialties

Dr. Kathryn A Kiehn has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Truly Patient Driven

I love the way Dr. Kiehn is always calm and collected (is it possible for her to ever be upset?!?!). She researches like crazy and is not afraid to admit when something is outside the scope of her knowledge. I would rather have a Dr admit her limitations than let an ego get in the way of my treatment. She values my time and my input. She also is great about responding quickly to my messages on her app. She's a rare find.

The epitome of excellent

Dr. Kiehn is completely wonderful. She talks regularly with my other physicians and she answers any questions I have quickly. I love that she's patient with me and never makes me feel rushed. I never have an excessive wait in her office, either. I truly love her.

Fantastic

Dr. Kiehn is the best. She is ALWAYS on time, she listens and takes my concerns seriously, and she invites my input. I've gotten follow up calls from her, not her staff. She goes the extra mile.

Front office is a disaster

Dr. Kiehn herself is good, but her secretary leaves much to be desired. When calling to book appointments, you're nearly always instantly placed on hold for several minutes and then it takes ages to get in... We are talking months. I'm an established patient with several conditions. I could potentially be a goldmine for her practice. Kiehn recognizes this, but her secretary does not. If I went by ability to get in and the secretary alone, I'd say run. At this point, I'm rheumatologist shopping, despite being with her for a couple of years and loving Kiehn herself.

Awesome

Dr. Kiehn is fantastic. She truly listens to you and remembers things you told her months before--things she definitely didn't take notes on. Dr. Kiehn personally calls with test results and doesn't rely on assistants or nurses to do it. She is patient over the phone while answering questions. She collaborates with my other specialists and internist on a regular basis. I truly trust Dr. Kiehn and love that she allows me to truly be a part of my healthcare decisions.
