Dr. Kaiser was very friendly and kept things pretty light-hearted. He repeated important information and took the time to confirm whether I understood what he was asking/explaining. Did not have to wait very long to be seen. The nurse was also very nice & professional.

What an awesome experience! I was very early for my appointment, but Dr. Kaiser saw me anyway, considering there were no other patients waiting. His receptionist was super sweet, and the doctor himself was kind, reassuring and funny! I am sopleased with my visit, and will definitely be going back!

I moved from Queens where I had a primary doctor for about 25 years to Brooklyn (NY) and was looking for a primary care Physician in my neighborhood. I found what I was looking for: very thorough, took the needed timefor a first appointment, did not prescribe all new meds for me. I was very satisfied and of course will be his patient. My daughter who came with me - was also impressed and will transfer to him.

Dr. Kaiser was kind and courteous, and wasted no time in running every possible test on me, totally unrelated to what I had come in for, in an apparent attempt to milk my insurance for everything it was worth.

My appointment with Dr. Kaiser went extremely smoothly! I was seen right away, despite being a minute or two late. I went right in to see him. Also, his office has a lot of equipment so they were able to doall the tests that are part of a complete physical right then and there, including X-Ray, EKG, hearing tests, lung tests, etc. Also, Dr. Kaiser is very friendly and welcoming to his patients! It was a pleasure speaking with him, he's very professional and did all of his work quickly and efficiently. His assistant is awesome as well. I didn't get her name but she's great! I highly recommend this doctor to anyone in the area. I'm happy to have Dr. Kaiser as my new PCP :).

This was most absolutely the best visit I had. Dr. Keiser was very professional, listening and respecting provider. the checkup was very through and tailored to my needs and feelings. if I would have known this experience is available in theneighborhood -including x ray, ear test and 60 blood tests- I wouldn't have made too many commutes to Manhattan. Very recommended!

Dr. Kaiser is a very caring professional with years of patient care experience ... he is thorough, careful and takes a very complete history - the most complete I've ever had. In addition, the office is clean and well maintained. Dr.Kaiser's staff is very welcoming and thorough as well. When I had a question, they answered it promptly. I highly recommend Dr. Kaiser for any patient who wants personalized care from a highly experienced doctor with years of experience.

Dr. Kaiser is fine if your needs are very specific such as routine lab work or to obtain a prescription, etc. It's often easy to get an appointment, wait time is great, and he handles many aspects of his practice (ifnot all) on his own with the assistance of a secretary. His hands-on approach seemed, at first, like a positive. However I have noticed over time that his attention to detail and strict routine seem to be his sole approach to healthcare. Intentional or not, this approach feels condescending and utterly lacking in compassion. His style verges on bossy and, oddly, he gives orders and reprimands in a teacherly sort of way, which appears to be his norm. Quite the opposite of what one should expect from a healthcare provider and certainly something I am not interested in receiving as a younger woman. As a healthcare professional myself, I have found that a little bit of listening and empathy go a long way - I'm not sure this is of interest to old school Dr. K.

Dr. Kaiser was a convenient option for me last week when I had a terrible sore throat and could not make it to the city to see my primary doctor. I was seen right away, which was great. However, I feltfrustrated as he started with archaic tests (hearing exam and breathing test?) in addition to temperature and blood pressure. The exam time took all of 5 minutes. He then said I had the flu and probable pnemonia and/or bronchitis, without ever looking at my throat. I asked about strep and he said confidently that I had the flu. I was upset because I know how serious the flu is this season...and confused because I hardly had any flu symptoms. Maybe he just was being extra cautious? I decided to get a second opinion at CityMD and within 10 mins of being seen they did a strep test which came back positive. I got antibiotics and felt better in 48 hours. I would not see Dr. Kaiser again.

A+...highly recommend Dr. Kaiser. Needed a new doc, since last doc stop taking my insurance, by far he has done a more thorough exam than any other doc I’ve seen. Blood pressure, EKG, chest X-ray, blood test, TB shot, flu shot,breathing test, he did it all, and in a very timely manner,that’s they way a check up should be, you won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Kaiser has my utmost gratitude and admiration. He is a true professional - efficient, knowledgeable, caring, and warm, with the seasoned expertise that I thought had long disappeared from the profession. I was suffering from a sinus infectionand I was able to get an immediate appointment. His office is no frills, but in that one visit - wherein I was seen immediately- I had an EKG, chest X-ray, breathing test, blood test, lung function test, and hearing test. And I just walked out - 50 minutes later. A marvel. I will be a patient for life.
