Dr. David Kieff, MD - Reviews

Boris Kovtunenko – Jun 09, 2020

Patient

Dr. Kieff is an incredible doctor. In January 2016 I finally had septoplasty and turbinates reductions surgery performed by him. My only regret is that I should have done it much, much earlier – I had trouble breathing through the nose for as long as I could remember. It was a life-changing experience for me to be able to always breathe through my nose freely. Many patients experience deterioration after that type of surgery, and sometimes thing go all the way back to where they were. I have not experienced any changes since the surgery for more than four years – Dr. Kieff is widely regarded to have golden hands. He also has awesome staff, is very thorough in his examinations, and a pleasure to deal with overall. I could not be happier and would recommend him and his staff to anyone.

1 Amazing experience - Highly recommend – Oct 04, 2019

Patient

So many good things to be said about Dr. Kieff and his staff. From the consultation to post op, Dr. Kieff and his team demonstrated professionalism, knowledge and expert care. Dr. Kieff performed a septoplasty and rhinoplasty along with turbinate reduction. The confidence I had in Dr. Kieff made surgery much less nerve racking. I am so happy with the results! I can breath better, no more drippy nose and the shape is just what I wanted, still me, but straightened out. He listened to what I wanted and provided his expertise for us to achieve the right results. I can't thank Dr. Kieff and his team enough. Absolutely recommend for anyone with ENT concerns or looking to for cosmetic surgery as he is certainly an expert in both!

Have tried others before seeing Dr Kieff but now will not see anyone else. I’ve had sinus surgery and facial injectables. Before I knew better I used to see a “top doc” dermatologist for injectables but what a difference it is to have Dr Kieff do it. Every procedure feels like it’s his most important. What a gem to find! Can’t recommend highly enough. Staff is also caring and conscientious.

Patient

Fantastic experience. Great staff. Dr. Kieff addressed a serious sinus issue that I had in a thoughtful and clear manner. Highly recommend.

1 Alyssa Cohen in Newtonville, MA – Jul 04, 2018

Patient

Dr. Kieff performed my septoplasty and rhinoplasty surgery in November of 2014. Then, this past month, I returned to him because of some very uncomfortable inner ear issues. Dr. Kieff is a quick thinking, intelligent, and caring doctor, and he makes sure to provide his patients with amazing availability for any follow up questions or concerns. In addition, his office staff is made up of some of the kindest people I've ever met! I felt so well taken care of at Dr. Kieff's office!

3 Feb 18, 2018

Patient

Dr. Kieff is an outstanding physician with broad medical knowledge. He was able to make a quick diagnosis about a chronic illness and recommended that I receive immediate treatment. In addition, his expertise in his own field is without peer. His manner is always professional, but kind and thoughtful, as well. A wonderful person on all counts.

Jan 18, 2018

Patient

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Kieff to anyone. Dr. Kieff is a top notch professional. He is warm, relaxed and lets you know what he's doing every step of the way. He guides the patient through the entire process (nose surgery) and makes it very easy to understand. My nose looks great - not a 'nose job' look at all.

2 Sara Boutin – Jan 13, 2018

Patient

Dr. Kieff has been an amazing doctor for me and my health needs. I had 2 deviated septum's and turbinate surgery July 2017 and it was the best decision I've made for my health. He took care walking me through steps to make sure surgery was the right course of action for me. Once it was determined I did need surgery, him and his team were so polite and kept me informed and worked with me through the process. I never felt overwhelmed or stressed. This was the best decision I made working with him

Wayland, MA – Jan 02, 2018

High! Dr. Kieff met all my expectations and more. Service was always timely, comprehensive, professional but sociable. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Westwood, MA – Dec 05, 2017

Patient

Dr. Kieff is a phenomenal doctor that I highly recommend. He is the most attentitive, professional and thorough doctor that I have ever been to. Dr Keiff performed a tonsillectomy and subsequent septoplasty. He successful cured my recurrent tonsillitis, sore throats, and sinus issues! Additionally, his office staff is wonderful!

Very friendly staff! Great doctor. Everything went as smooth as explained. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Patient

I have seen Dr. Kieff for more than a decade for recurring ear and sinus issues, including nasal polyps. He has been very constructive in developing a plan to mitigate symptoms. Additionally, he has provided flexibility in scheduling appointments.

Oct 13, 2017

Patient

I had long standing issues with nasal polyps and allergies. I have had surgeries in the past but I found the experience very uncomfortable. My experience with Dr. Kieff's surgery was nothing but pleasant. His methodical approach for prepping me up (with proper medication) before the procedure made surgery a breeze. I was actually driving the very next day of my surgery. Within a week, I was back to doing my normal activities. The symptoms are gone and I feel great.

2 Sep 30, 2017

Patient

I was having really bad nasal congestion and sinus pressure. My allergy testing and management helped some, but I remained symptomatic. As a medical interpreter, I had the opportunity to see several different ENT doctors. Fortunately, I settled with Dr. Kieff. I am so happy I did. My experience was not just great from a surgical standpoint, but I also found him and his staff very kind and comforting. I was never rushed. As a person who is prone to feel anxious, I really appreciated this.

1 Sep 29, 2017

Patient

I had nasal blockage that was not getting better with allergy management or medication. It was affecting my sleep too. Dr. Kieff and his team were very helpful in my treatment. I felt as if they taught me a lot about why I was congested. Ultimately I underwent nasal surgery and feel much better. I am sleeping better too.

1 Sep 29, 2017

Patient

I was referred to Dr. Kieff after having issues with my ears ringing and being blocked all the time. During the first visit I was diagnosed with a deviated septum, enlarged turbinates and enlarged adenoids. The options for treatment were clearly explained to me and making the decision to have have surgery to correct both was easy. Throughout the whole process everything was explained fully and accurately so I knew what to expect at each stage of treatment.

Sep 28, 2017

Patient

Dr. Kieff is an excellent ENT!! He diagnosed several long-term health issues for me. And he created a medical plan to solve every issue. His regular follow-up check-in's are so helpful, and helped me to maintain my health! I heartily recommend Dr Kieff for any ENT issues!

Sep 08, 2017

Patient

From the moment I arrived at Dr. Kieff's office, I knew I was in good hands. I had excruciating facial nerve pain and Dr. Kieff and his staff were exceptionally responsive and helpful. Through a complicated diagnosis, this team worked diligently to expedite tests and urgent treatment. I am so grateful for their compassionate care. I highly recommend this practice for their commitment to patient health and well-being. Thank you to Dr. Kieff and his staff!

Dr. Keiff's office provides great, professional service. I've been there several times and the staff has quickly taken me. Dr. Keiff does an amazing job. He helps you understand everything and is clear with directions after surgery.

Doctor Kieef allocates more than enough time and attention to you and he explains everything. He makes sure that you follow your treatments.

Patient

I have been a patient of Doctor Kieff's for over 3 years now. He has performed 2 surgeries and many checkups on me. Dr. Kieff does a great job listening and explaining the situation to his patients. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a patient doctor that cares about his patients.

Excellent experience, great staff, patient with my insurance, very thorough.

Aug 12, 2017

Patient

I had surgery with Dr. Kieff 6 years ago and the results were perfect. I made sure I came back to MA to see him for my next ENT issue (currently living in New York City). He is one of the nicest and most intelligent surgeons I have ever dealt with. I highly recommend Dr. Kieff.

Aug 04, 2017

Patient

I am a health care provider so I do have some experience with treating patients. I have to say that Dr. Kieff is not only a great doctor, but he is a wonderful and caring person. I literally have seen at least ten ENTs over the last twenty years. Dr. Kieff was the most thorough and gentle of them all. I have had chronic ear issues which has caused hearing loss. Since seeing him, my hearing has returned. I also had some throat pain which was diagnosed and treated. H...

Patient

I had a rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Kieff. He fixed a problem that I thought could not be corrected. He is a real experienced professional. Also his practice has a nice small office feel. I highly recommend using Dr. Kieff.

1 Jul 25, 2017

Patient

Dr. Kieff and his office have made such a difference in my daily life, allowing me to feel good and be able to breathe again. Before visiting Dr. Kieff, I had struggled with sinus infections, swollen glands, and difficulty breathing. As I became older, my symptoms became worse. After being referred to Dr. Kieff, he immediately set me up for sinus/deviated septum surgery. The office and Dr. Kieff made it as easy and comfortable as could be. Dr. Kieff is a master at surgery. So thankful.

Jul 15, 2017

Patient

After having chronic sinus infections for 8 months every year, I came to see Dr. Kieff. He listened to my concerns and confirmed a deviated septum, along with other sinus issues. After my surgery,he and the staff were very receptive to questions or concerns I had. I am happy to report that my surgery was successful and has changed my life for the better. I highly recommend Dr. Kieff and his team. I trust his professional opinions and decisions in a heartbeat. He is very knowledgeable!

Jun 13, 2017

Patient

I have been under Dr. Kieff's care for the past 3 years for chronic nasal and sinus congestion, nasal polyps and a deviated septum. He had urged me to have surgical procedures to alleviate these issues which I avoided for those three years. Finally, I agreed and it was the best thing I have ever done. I was unable to breath through my nose any longer. I was a 100% mouth breather. And, as if that were not bad enough I was coming down with colds and sinus infections co...

my condition overall hasimproved since my last visit.The other doctor that Dr. Kieff recommmended i see has helped as well. i will continue this path of treatment as recommended, seems to be working.

May 23, 2017

Patient

Dr Kieff used the less invasive endoscopic surgery for treatment. The results were amazing. A major reduction in sinus pressure and pain with a much easier post op than traditional surgery.

May 23, 2017

Patient

Seeing Dr. Kieff for sinuplasty in 10/2016 was one of the best things I ever did. It truly improved my quality of life. He is a great doctor and has a wonderful staff.

Chris in Newton, MA – May 20, 2017

Patient

I have been seeing Dr. Kieff for 10 years. This winter I experienced increased issues with my nasal/sinus system unlike anything to date. Dr. Kieff (thank god) identified that the issue was much more extensive & systemic than originally suspected. He flagged me for rare/ dangerous autoimmune disease and I received treatment from another specialist before it got worse. Dr. Kieff: thank you for listening, your research and your patience. I appreciate your care and am grateful you're my doctor!

May 19, 2017

Patient

I realize that "headline" might sound like an exaggeration. But it's the truth. When I came to Dr. Kieff I was in the throes of chronic sinusitis with regular laryngitis as a results of post-nasal drip and coughing. I had been struggling for the better part of a year. Within a single visit, he helped me make changes that resulted in relief and better health. He's a great listener and makes suggestions based on lifestyle (what's realistic) and other factors (allergies...

2 1 Wellesley Hills, MA – Apr 21, 2017

Patient

This was probably the worst experience with a doctor that I've ever had. Dr. Kieff was running very late, was very impatient, addressed the nurse rather than me with questions about my situation, did not explain that he was going to use a scope, and rushed out of the room afterwards. While waiting, I heard staff members discussing the fact that someone needed to sterilize the instruments because the regular person was out. A few weeks after visiting, I got an antibiotic resistant sinus infection

Natick, MA – Apr 11, 2017

Patient

I went to Dr. Kieff due to headaches I was getting per the recommendation of my PCP. He immediately let me know possible causes and recommended septoplasty and turbinate surgery. I liked that Dr. Kieff went over the pros and cons of the surgery with me, making a recommendation but not pushing too hard and leaving it to me to make the final decision. I ended up choosing to have the surgery and am glad I did. He did a great job with the surgery and has provided all the follow-up care required.

2 Lee R in Somerville, MA – Oct 17, 2016

Patient

Dr. Kieff did not force me into surgery and created a treatment plan that was really tailored to my needs. Once we both agreed that surgery was necessary, I had the operation within a month (septoplasty, sinus surgery, turbinate reduction) and it went flawlessly. I was back at work within a week and my quality of life has changed so drastically. Even after moving to Somerville, I continued making the drive to Newton because I was in such good hands. I wouldn't recommend anyone else!

1 Kevin in Waltham, MA – Jul 16, 2016

Patient

I visited Dr Kieff with recurring nasal allergies. He quickly diagnosed me with a deviated septum. The office staff was able to schedule my surgery very quickly and they communicated very well. Dr Kieff was/is kind and professional. Several months past surgery, I am now off of my allergy medications and breathing much better. I'm glad I took the time to do this. I'm also glad I went to Dr. Kieff.

Had a septo-rhinoplasty with turbinate reduction done by Dr. Kieff. He is a wonderful physician who truly cares about his patients. The women at the front desk are amazing and willing to work with you for scheduling issues. I'm very pleased with the results of my surgery and would recommend him...Read More

2 2 Mary Z, MSN, RN in Framingham, MA – Feb 18, 2016

Patient

I have been a patient of Dr. Kieff for many years. In fact, I followed him when he moved his practice. We tried medical management of my allergic rhinitis and sinusitis for many years and I finally reached the point that I needed surgery. He is personable and direct with his advice and I trust his clinical judgment completely and my surgery and recovery went without incident, thanks to Dr. Kieff's expert care. I highly recommend him if you have any issues with you ears, nose, or throat.
