I recently had a very positive experience with Dr. Adam Kurtin at Treasure Coast Surgical Specialists. I was taken in right away and first met with Dr. Hernandez, a resident who is doing a rotation there. My wife is anxious about my impending procedure and he made her feel at ease. Dr. Kurtin came in shortly after and gave and extremely detailed description of what needs to be done in terms that we could understand. He didn't rush us through the process and answered all of our questions.

After the examination, Dr. Kurtin explained what my options were, what the procedures are, and the benefits of each. Dr. Kurtin was very reassuring and I am confident that the procedure will be successful.

Nashville, TN |
What a wonderful man, My 91 year old mother was under his care for 2 weeks at SLMC. He was not aggressive and tried his best to help us avoid surgery. After 3 days of still having issues he performed abdominal surgery. He was in and out of the OR as quickly as he could and came directly to the recovery room to speak with me. He is a kind, caring, compassionate healthcare professional.. As a RN myself I attest to his character.
