Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

He doesn’t listen at all. Doesn’t care about your history. He will write a scrip and not see if there are adverse effects mixing with other meds you are on. He is arrogant, gets mad, insensitive, rude, condescending. Etc etc. do yourself a favor and find someone else!!!

Told me I can be on Ambien indefinitely. That's enough for his appropriateness in the field to be questioned.

Spent less than 15 minutes on an initial appointment, during which he asked few questions. A follow up appointment lasted 5 minutes. Throws out medications seemingly at random and has no patience for any questions about side effects. Downright rude and not caring. Displays little regard for patient well-being. Awful doctor.

I love Dr.Kurien! He's very nice and he listens to me and asks how I'm doing . I would recommend him to others. I travel half hour at times to see him but it's worth it

Dr. Kurien spends very little time with his patients. He appears to be very confident however to the point that he shows annoyance if you have any questions . He spends little time during the initial evaluation taking a history from the patient . He shows disinterest in medication questions as if the concerns are petty. I noticed in the 5 minute appt that he looked at his watch 3 times when I spoke . I went back 4 times as did hear good things about him but my experience was disheartening.

Not very thorough. Needs to dig deeper into viable solutions for the patient and consider all factors when offering prescriptions. Also needs to develop a plan--one that addresses the whole patient--instead of handing out prescriptions on a tactical basis.
