Review of Dr. Kuhlman-Wood

- in Coeur d'Alene, ID |

I wish there were 10 plus stars. I cannot possibly say enough good things about Dr. Kate Kuhlman-Wood. May 2017 I went in for surgery with a broken/crushed hand. She was reassuring while confident that I would be fine. She was right. Today I have FULL use of my hand and lucked out because she also is a plastic surgeon. My hand's like new! I felt so cared for and she exceeded my expectations. I'm blessed she was recommended to me. Highly recommend her. She's not only caring, she's the very best!

Review of Dr. Kuhlman-Wood

- in Bonners Ferry, ID |

Sept 2017: broken hand, surgery & pins. Dr. Kate’s credentials and experience make it clear that her skills are superior. I met patients at her office and at PT whose seriously mangled hands Dr. Kate had reassembled. Her genuine personal warmth and no-nonsense confidence relieved all nervousness. Nothing felt rushed or uncertain. No one wants to undergo surgery, but when it’s necessary, it means a lot to have a skilled surgeon who remembers the importance of relating personally to the patient.

Review of Dr. Kuhlman-Wood

- in Colbert |

In June, 2017, I made an appointment with Dr. Kuhlman-Wood's office for a consultation about having breast reduction surgery. This was my only consultation with a doctor as I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Kuhlman. I underwent surgery on July 26, 2017, and would highly recommend Dr. Kuhlman to any woman who is considering having this procedure. I felt that she truly cared about my concerns and needs and could completely empathize with my decision to have this procedure done.

Review of Dr. Kuhlman-Wood

- in Coeur D Alene, ID |

I am a 67 year old male. I had to have bilateral blepharoplasty (bilateral eyelid reduction) and brow lift. It was so bad I was looking through my eyelashes. I lost my peripheral vision. Dr. Kate gave me a brow lift that looks great, make me feel much younger. She had to do the eyelid surgery being careful not to take too much. She is an artist and an expert. Her group is personable and very caring. If you need this type of surgery, you will be very satisfied with her. Jim Taylor, CDA

Carpal tunnel surgery. Dr. and her staff made it a great and easy experience. So much so, I had the other hand done 4 weeks later.
