"I met Dr. Keifer in 2011 when I was desperately searching to find help for my son. Dr. Keifer is compassionate to what the patient is going through. He is equally compassionate to the hearts of the families that are faced with a loved one in pain or struggling; and is masterful at bringing harmony to the ohana as a whole. I whole heartedly recommend Dr. Keifer to anyone. "
"Dr. Keifer heard my story and made sure I clearly understood just how he could help me. I was confused about just how a psychiatrist would help my complex situation as my prior experiences were that they often had little time and focused mostly on making a quick diagnosis and prescribing medication, while another professional had done the psychotherapy. I always felt alone and isolated from my family members, all having there own opinions. Dr. Keifer's evaluation and treatment took all of my needs into account. He made the right diagnosis, prescribed medication, and most importantly also provided the therapy. He included other family members as part of the evaluation and treatment as indicated, in a way that was very specific to my needs and those of my family. With such an approach there was rapid improvement."
"Dr. Keifer is the most awesome psychiatrist I have ever met. He treated me while I was living temporarily in Honolulu. He is a rare example of a professional care giver who actually listens to you, and doesn't pretend he is a god. His staff is super efficient, and - this is another anomaly in the healthcare arena - they do what they say they will do. I never had any problems getting in to see him; he even stayed late on a couple of occasions to accommodate my schedule. I highly recommend him if you seek a compassionate, highly-trained professional who will go out of his way to help you reach your goals."
