03/10/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Kettel is very understanding, patient and has wonderful bed side manner. His entire staff made me feel so comfortable and was so patient with me and my million questions and concerns. The receptionists & nurses always knew my name and greeted me when I walked in; when I called they all seemed to be aware of my case and showed genuine care for my situation. The phlebotomist is so good at what she does and always made me laugh through my fear of the needles. I have never left this office without the very most confidence in what I had been told and in the staff handling my case. Dr Kettel & SD Fertility are truley wonderful and I would recommend them time and time again.
