Her handling of my hyperparathyroidism has saved my quality of life, my emotional life, and my relationships.

She exemplifies the finest you could hope in a health care provider. I am so fortunate to have her as my physician.


*Dr. Lisa Kistner is an excellent physician.


Dr. Kistner is very supportive and follows up about test results even after hours.


Usually my visits rank close to 10/10 this particular visit my doctor was a but dismissive, but moreso because she did not actually examine the presenting issue. I thought that was bizarre and it was disappointing that so little time was spent actually looking at the problem. This visit was an anomoly to be sure.


Dr. Kistner is an awesome physician. She is very knowledgeable and attentive. I've never felt rushed through or that I couldn't ask her anything. Dr. Kistner ROCKS!!!!!!!


I am very thankful to have Dr. Kistner as my primary care doctor. She is just the best! On April 01, 2017 both my husband and I were diagnosed at the same time with pneumonia resulting in an 8 day hospital stay for my husband. Dr. Kistner followed up with me several times via phone call during the entire month of April to see how I was doing as well as my husband. This was very comforting during a serious time of health concerns for both of us.


I have been seeing Dr. Kistner for several years, I really respect her and trust her. She is the best doctor I have ever had


At the risk of not being able to ever get an appointment, I recommend Dr. Kistner to everyone. She has always been very good about listening to what is going on and my concerns and then recommending a course of treatment or medication that may be needed. She has a tremendous amount of empathy and is wonderful to deal with. I will be very sad when she retires. The medical profession needs more like her!


Dr. Kistner is the most caring and insightful medical provider I have ever known.

Dr.Kistner was extremely caring and concerned that my daughter had died a month prior to this follow up visit, she assured me she was there for me should I feel the need to contact her at a later date
