He is very professional, knowledgable. He gave me good advice on my BP medicine. I wouldn't go to anyone else! He takes the time to explain everything & he doesn"t mind being asked questions. The technician I had was Pam she was outstanding! I hope she is still there next year.

Treated a relative for knee issues, but now they must have another procedure to correct what he messed up. Insists on using his outpatient facility in WI so he'll be receive reimbursement from insurance at a higher rate. What a joke. Run (if you can) to anyone else but him!

May 28 2020

Review for Dr. Kuesis

His behavior is rude and disrespectful to the patient and their family members. Does not listen and gets angry and annoyed easily when any question is asked. He was more interested in knowing who referred to him (looking for more business) rather than hearing what caused the health problem.
