    Loved the questions she asked, particularly what do I want to be able to do when I am done treatment.

    I just love Dr. Kindschi, she really cares about what she does and her patients. I love her services so much that I sent my father to see her and him and my step mom adore her as well. I highly recommend Dr. Kindschi if it was a scale 1-10 It would be off the scale more than 10times. She is a very excellent listener. And cares about your situation.
