Mr. Kinzig is highly professional and easy to discuss any health concerns. He is great in assisting me in dealing with my medical challenge.
Patient | January 24, 2017

He is not my regular doctor. Told me we were going to do a test & then changed mind. I had to ask, are you still doing the test & he was like no.

Brett is very knowledgable and I like the fact that he lets me also make decisions about my medication.
Patient | June 18, 2016

e-mailed care provider in advance if needed to bring anything. Replied that did not need to bring anything. However, when I showed up, he requested the glucose monitor saying that I should have brought it with me
Patient | June 14, 2016

Overall it is always a good visit with this provider. My one concern with this clinic is that on just about every visit they always want to try and change or push the latest/greatest drug; whatever the drug sales reps are pushing them to get out there.

Since I am older than dirt, I have seen MANY doctors in my lifetime. And therefore, I can say with great judgment that I wish future physicians could learn from Brett Kinzeg NP on how to interact with their patients.

Only issue is there was no follow-up appointment scheduled. I would like to see this provider again

Patient | March 16, 2016

Confused about labs I thought I sopose to get urine and cholesterol check but only got urine and he rewrote the new prescription with old instructions I'm still as confused as when I walked in
Patient | February 9, 2016

I felt as though the provider was talking down to me and he was not up to date on my medical history. Throughout the visit, he would state he was not comfortable about doing a certain type of treatment because he was not familiar with my history, which i
