Review for Dr. Manusov

Dr. Kuye is a very friendly, caring & knowledgeable doctor. He always is very concerned about his patients & goes out of his way to make sure they get the medicines and/or tests needed for their specific problem. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone needing a good primary doctor.
