Great doc, terrible service

I really like Dr. Kasten, she listens and she works through issues trying to find solutions. Sadly, the fact that it is hard to get an appointment and then, once there, no matter what time of day, she is always running late. It is not acceptable to make patients wait for hours. Once in a while is understandable, but every single time is clearly poor scheduling, or poor time management on the doctor's part.

I saw Dr Kettler because she was available. She was great, spoke to me, engaged me in the encounter, spoke to me intelligently and had suggestions I may use. She was conservative in her diagnosis and what needed to be done. Set me up for follow up in a timely manner.

Always rushing out the door

I went to this doctor for several years and I never was satisfied. She is ALWAYS rushing and never asks if you have questions, then rushes out the door. After I learned this about her, I always made sure to say I have questions. She would quickly answer my first one then rush out the door. Not only were her answers very vague, generic, and unhelpful (most of the time, she would just say if it doesn't hurt, you'll be okay), she never cared to stay long enough to hear my other questions.
