Regarding Dr Kindsvater, he is very knowledgeable and communicated my situation in a manner that was easy to understand. He was thorough and addressed my answers and concerns. I left with the impression that he is highly competent while at the same time demonstrated a high degree of empathy and concern. He certainly motivated me to make the necessary changes to achieve a better quality of life.

He came in the room and sat down to speak to me. Small gesture, but immediately I felt that he was going to give me undivided attention and not rush through the exam. I was surprised to have abnormal EKG results requiring a heart cath, and nervous about the procedure. He spent time answering all my questions, explaining the procedures in detail and reviewing my options. I left feeling I was well informed and in good hands.

Dr Kindsvater is very kind and knowing. I'm very thankful to have such a pro "on my side."About the staff, I was equally impressed with the office staff - especially with the women who helped me most - my dad fault of no name even though I tried to write it, but lost still the paper. BUT, this women is a spec human with great knowledge oh the workings of what the patient needs.I wish more time - and her name - she is a great member of the team.Overall, super !!!

He was articulate and used medical terms I was unfamilar with but was patient with my questions. I left knowing I was going to have 2 procedures but not understanding the exact purpose. However, I have a lot of trust in Dr. Kindsvater and believe he will get results that will be helpful In his treatment of me. I think he really cares about me as his patient.
