Review for Dr. Kuzel

I tried him as my primary Dr. and it just didn't work out. He double books all his appointments so get ready to wait. Never explains anything or gives any gameplan. I had MRSA and he didn't even recognize the systems. Just a completely disappointing experience. I could of died because of this guy.

He was SO wonderful during the hospice period with my father during his final moments. I'm not a patient at St. Mary's, but he took the time to listen, and that meant so much to me and my family. I have not met a more compassionate doctor ANYWHERE.

My experience was not a good one when she was in Michigan! Had the surgery, ended up with 6 stents within a month after surgery. Been opened up twice since surgery to remove infected sternum wires. Not a good experience for me. ??

Sanford Michigan - Dec 25 2017

Review for Dr. Ellis

Totally unprofessional and uncaring. Diagnosed me with crohn’s Disease then just left me to suffer with no treatment. When asked how to deal with the unbareable pain I was in he told me to “tough it out”.

Review for Dr. McKee

A disappointing visit - Dr. igwe appeared to be in a hurry, did not appear to take concerns seriously, and gave only a brief and uninformative explanation. I would recommend going elsewhere.
