His strategies have helped us solve specific family issues, one at a time, gradually and permanently. He does all this with expertise and empathy. With patience and sincerity, Dr. Keifer has cultivated a strong connection with our family. Most of all, Dr. Keifer has empowered us to become strong and confident parents who are in control of our family. We are with Dr. Keifer for the long haul. It is a comfort to know that Dr. Keifer will be there to help our family navigate through all stages of our sons’ lives — from elementary to adolescence to adulthood."
We had never considered seeking help from a psychiatrist before, but we faced a challenge with our child that lead us to The Kahala Clinic for Children and Family. Dr. Bell was highly recommended and now we can add to that. She is upbeat, intuitive, approachable and truly wants to provide excellent care - you will see progress with her help. She is nothing short of extraordinary! We have seen tremendous growth in our child. Now she is happy, maintains good relationships and is finding much success in school (this was not the case before). A very special component offered at The Kahala Clinic (for Children and Family) is that parents can receive assistance from Dr. Bell and Dr. Keifer jointly. Together they provide a wonderful balance. We have gained much insight as parents as well as a couple. Our aha moments come often when we are in their presence! They have a great understanding of the intricacies of family dynamics and provide concrete suggestions. We are very grateful to Dr. Bell and Dr. Keifer. There is no doubt, as a family we are better because of them.
"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 is a kind, patient, compassionate doctor who takes time to actually listen to you. This is rare (from my experience) among health care persons today. His office staff is super helpful; getting an appointment was never an issue. Once there, I never had to wait more than 2 min to see him. I think Dr. Keifer is awesome and would recommend him to anyone who wants to make changes in their lives but need help."
