Dr. Kietz is always caring and kind, his care has been excellent and I always value our visit
Dr. Kietz is an incredibly compassionate provider who takes the time to look at the WHOLE patient.

He also made several suggestions of practitioners and providers that can also potentially be a helpful part of my healthcare team.
Dr. Keitz is not only extremely knowledgeable but he cares about his patients. He spends quality time listening and showing compassion for his patient physical and mental wellness.. He has a kind soul and I would recommend him to everyone.the very best.

This was my first Dr appt with Dr kietz. I have been battling an auto-immune disease for almost 2 years now and have yet to be diagnosed. My appointment was to have a 2nd opinion. Dr kietz was absolutely amazing. I couldn't have been any happier with my doctor appointment and will continue to be seen by Dr. Kietz.
we did have to wait a little while after being in the exam room to see the dr. But with that being said, Dr Keitz, had no appointments until November and when he heard about Nevin's problems, he fit him in. So the wait was not a problem at all for us. we are always very pleased with Dr Keitz! He never brings in Nevin's records but always remembers everything about him!
Dr. Kietz is awesome. He asked us what we thought about her current medical plan & then asked her. He wants our opinions on her treatment unlike most doctors who just give you the medicine & don't ask later if it helped or not.
Dr. Kietz is absolutely amazing. He is so caring and thorough when he deals with his patients. While I hope to be on our way to the end of needing to be seen by Dr. Kietz - I would recommend him to anyone I know. He is the best.

Dr. Kietz is simply the best. He's so caring, understanding, takes time to listen, explains things in very good understanding detail.
Dr. Daniel Keitz is excellent! He spent over 1 hour with my child and I, listening to our questions and concerns, addressing each one. We even got to the appointment 15 minutes late and he still took us in for our appointment because it was very important to see him before my child started her new school year.

Dr. Kietz is so gentle and caring and extremely concerned/worried about my child. He talks a lot one on one with my teenager and shows her respect, not just treating her like a number. Most doctors aren't this personable with their patients.
I have complete confidence in Dr. Kietz and I feel i'm getting the best care possible.
Dr. Kietz always listens very carefully and suggests a variety of treatments, including both mind/body approaches and pharmaceutical approaches. it's clear that he wants the patient to feel content with the treatment options.

I always have a great experience with Dr. Kietz.
excellent service, as always
He cares for more than your health. He asked about school, work, everyday life. He tries to make your disease and life style work together so you can continue on being YOU, not defined by a rheumatoid disease.
Dr. Kietz is always very thorough & detailed with his appointments. He listens and cares about not only the physical well being but emotional well being of his patients.
Dr. Keitz is the best doctor. He is responsible for my good health and ability to live a normal life.
I've been sick (diagnosed with an autoimmune disease) since the Fall of 2008, and I started to see Dr. Kietz in the Fall of 2012 for my bone marrow transplant. After the transplant was over with, I moved back home to Michigan and was under another rheumatologist's care at the University of Michigan. I have had/seen doctors from the Cleveland Clinic, University of Michigan, Mayo Clinic, University of Miami (FL), and UPMC; I can easily say that Dr. Kietz is the most kind-hearted, knowledgeable, personable, and charismatic doctor that I've had taking care of me. I have noticed quite a drastic fall in the care provided from pediatric rheumatologists/doctors to adult rheumatologists/doctors as I've gotten older, which was why I requested to come back and see Dr. Kietz. I know that he cares about my quality of life, my future, and my mental/emotional/physical well-being. He is never rushed when he is seeing me for an appointment and he is sure to let me speak my mind and my concerns so that he knows how to respond appropriately and take appropriate action to help make me feel better. During times when I'm most vulnerable due to my physical health and when I'm at my weakest, I'm so blessed to have Dr. Kietz there to try and figure out what's going on with me. He's an incredible doctor and an even better human being.
This was my first visit with him and we spent plenty of time discussing my previous diagnosis. I like that he took time and listened and asked questions.
Dr kietz is a very compassionate and caring doctor. He is very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him as a doctor.

Dr. Kietz has always been courteous and empathetic toward my son and myself. He takes the time and listens to concerns and then give a his recommendations. We trust his expertise and appreciate his honesty. My son is a teenager and he looks forward to his appointments and seems to enjoy the amount of understanding he receives from Dr. Kietz. Since my son is typically quiet, it is wonderful to see him in this atmosphere and opening up the way he does. I am grateful for Dr. Kietz.
Excellent experience. always feel well cared for and respected after a visit with him.
I appreciate that Dr. Kietz takes the time to discuss Matelyn's overall health and well being as part of the exam and he really listens to her responses.
Dr. Kietz is an amazing Dr. He is very thorough and he takes his time with each patient. We never feel rushed and he always remembers us and even key things about our daughter even if it's been 6 months since the last visit.
Dr. Kietz always takes time to talk with my daughter and makes her feel comfortable during the office visit.
We love Dr. Keitz, he is kind and caring. His fellow (Dr. Daniel Glaser) was also the best I have seen so far! He addressed our concern's and explained things in a way both my son and I could understand.
Dr Keitz is the best, he listens to our concerns and helps us to make the right decisions for Nick's care. Also he takes the time to interact with Nick which makes him comfortable to talk to.
Dr. Kietz is the best doctor that I see. He is thoughtful and listens to everything you say and makes sure he covers your entire health history before examining. He then makes thoughtful conclusions based on both your physical exam and discussions you have together and makes sure that everything is easy to understand for you. He truly cares about giving you the best care possible and does not judge or have a superiority complex that many doctors I have seen. He is truly amazing!
Dr. Keitz was wonderful. I have worked in the health care field, and I have never seen a Doctor take as much time with a patient as he did. I felt like he had all the time in the day. Listen when I spoke, very empathetic.
We love Dr. Kietz! He truly cares about my son. He truly advocates for his patients.
Dr. Keitz was extremely relatable with my son and spent time listening and understanding all he has been through.

Dr. Kietz is a wonderful doctor.

Dr.Keitz is the best thing that ever happened to my daughter. He takes the time to listen to her and make sure she is happy with how her health is progressing. He makes sure she is a part of her improving health and that she is in charge of the decisions and medications so that her health continues to improve. We appreciate his knowledge and kindness at every visit. It is truly a pleasure every time we see him.
He has this natural ability to engage the child all the while examining the joints/movement at the same time! We love him!
Dr. Kietz is wonderful
The doctor took my child's fatigue as a real problem, he did not just say, they are on their phone to much and should exercise more.

Our care provider, Dr Kietz, is wonderful! Although we had a little longer office wait than normal he takes his time with each patient/parent....worth the wait!! All questions answered and explained. Very pleased, very blessed!
Love Dr. Kietz
Best doctor ever. Best medical office ever.
He was wonderful, caring and is easily able to speak both to kids and parents.
Dr and all staff was always excellent.
My son loves to visit with Dr Keitz WE have never had a bad experience here
Dr. Kietz is absolutely the best doctor we have ever been to and qe've been to a lot of them. Not only is he a great rheumatologist but he cares about the entire health of his patients. He is also most generous with his time.
Sometimes didn't get any call back for concerns we called in with. Strongly feel Keitz listens well as invests time in us, but question when he says all symptoms are from the same ailment and sometimes we leave uncertain of the reasons he gives for pain and concerns.
Dr. Kietz is always very professional and kind. He focuses on my daughter and speaks to her about her medical condition and engages her in the check up the entire time. He is always very thorough with her exam and careful to note when there's an issue or a concern and to explain everything to my daughter so that she is learning how to manage her arthritis and speak up when she needs his help.
Thr physician made it a point to get to know my daughter and spent a lot of time under her concerns and listen to her.
best provider ever
Dr. Kietz shows genuine care and concern. He is, by far the best doctor I've ever seen.
I don't know what we would do if Dr. Kietz wasn't here in Pittsburgh. There is no other doctor I trust more with my daughter then him.
I waited over 1 1/2 hours for Doctor to see me for my appointment once in room.
love Dr. Kietz. and his Fellow Dr. that was in the appointment as well was very nice as well
Dr Kietz is very knowledgeable and compassionate. The only improvement that I could recommend is easier communication directly with the office and doctor
Dr. Kietz is always informative in explaining new medications and treatments. He shows great interest and concern in my daughters overall health, well-being, and day-to-day life.
Dr.Kietz is literally the best doctor I ever had!!!!!
Dr. Kietz is wonderful, thoughtful, intelligent, and all-around the kind of doctor you want caring for your child. I would recommend him to anyone who needs rheumatology care in Pittsburgh, hands-down.
Dr. Kietz listens well and helps provide suggestion for my health as well as acknowledges my suggestions (specifically requesting to go back to physical therapy).the nurse that has been there for all of my appointments have the most amazing "bedside" manner!
Dr. Kietz is a phenomenal physician and we look forward to seeing him each time. He has a standard of excellence.
Dr Kietz is an amazing doctor. He always speaks to our 2yr old daughter who is the patient, which in turn makes her feel very comfortable with him. He never makes us feel rushed and always answers our questions. We may wait a little extra but I never mind because I know he's giving other patients the time they deserve. I fully trust Dr Kietz and would recommend him to anyone!
Knowledgeable. Engaged. Fun. Effective communication. Did not feel like a "number" or rushed.
Dr. Kietz is an extraordinary physician. He understood my son in ways that no other physician has before, both physically and emotionally. His listening skills, bedside manner, compassion, and knowledge are outstanding. He provided insights into my son's medical history and prior treatments that were life changing for our family.
As always, Dr. Kietz is the best doctor I have ever come across. I have five children and have seen many doctors over the years, and he is the most empathetic human being. My son loves going to see him and feels the same.
Dr Keith is a great doctor, very caring, takes his time to explain and seems to be very knowledgeable.
