Dale Massad, MD has been working with Dr. Kiesel since 1985 as a referring physician, as well as using Dr. Kiesel as his own personal orthopaedic specialist. Dr. Massad shares, “I’ve got very bad knee problems and I’ve had troubles since a football injury as a kid. I began reading literature on knee health and the best techniques for healing years ago. I began injection treatments with Dr. Kiesel seven months ago and my knee pain is completely gone. Surgery was not something I wanted to do, so I chose to research other options. The first step I took was finding my orthopaedic specialist – Dr. Kiesel – whom I chose because I thoroughly trust him and his expertise.
“The second step was to try out anti-inflammatory relief. Once anti- inflammatory treatment did not get the job done, I chose to try steroids. After trying those options with no relief, your next choice is to try stem cell injections or receive surgery. I prefer to do everything I can to help myself before choosing an option that is irreversible, such as surgery. Dr. Kiesel helped me out with injections and I have had no pain since.”
Dr. Massad’s opinion is one backed with experience and knowledge. He was the head of Emergency Room at Mease Countryside Hospital, where he worked with many great orthopaedic doctors. Dr. Massad says, “I choose Dr. Kiesel as my orthopaedic doctor because he is the type of doctor who cares about people, not money. He cares, his bedside manner is impeccable, he is good at what he does and his results are great. As his friend, I love him because he’s a great person. As his patient, I love him because he is a great doctor. I’d choose him every time.”
