The staff were caring and kind both before, during and after my Angiogram. Dr. Brian Kurland was very skillful and cleared a major blockage in one of my femoral arteries. The whole team, including Dr. Kurland, Stephanie, Laura, Evan and Jeff all knew their responsibilities and executed their roles beautifully and with a lot of care. I'm so grateful that I'll be able to return to my morning walks!!!

I use Dr. Kurland and his staff as a model when I have to frequent other Medical facilities. The stag is friendly and always remember your name. They dress in colors and the office decor is colorful as well. It makes a patient feel more comfortable. Dr. Kurland gives me confidence when a procedure is necessary.

Dr. Kurland recently performed a TCAR surgery on my left carotid artery. The procedure went flawlessly with only a over night stay in the hospital. If Dr. Kurland suggest a similar procedure for anyone having a blocked artery, be assured you are in a masters hands. Get-er-done

My husband and I met with Dr. Kurland and his assistant, Stephanie, and we were impressed with TCAR non-invasive surgery, that he could put a stent in to open my left carotid artery that was 99% blocked. He was very thorough and wanted to make sure we understood everything and felt comfortable with the procedure. He gave us time to discuss it before deciding to go ahead—no pressure. I had the TCAR surgery on April 6, 2021. When finished he called my husband to say it went well I stayed in the hospital over night and Dr. Kurland came in the morning to discuss my going home ‘things to do and not do’. I was expected to have a sore throat, but actually I had no sore throat or pain of any kind—just a little discomfort at the incision site when I swallowed or turned my head. The incision is still glued together and gets itchy. Life is mostly back to normal. Stephanie checked on me a week after. I feel very blessed to have Dr. Kurland as my vascular surgeon and I would highly recommend him

We have never had a Dr. and staff as attentive and caring for any procedure we ever had, at any facility!! Dr. Kurland came out before and after the surgery, the Nurse Donna kept us informed all the time how thing were going and Dr. Kurland came right out after and also called Robert's daughter in WI. and explained everything about the operation. Robert was very closely monitored by Nurse Donna and the rest of the staff and we knew we were in great hands! We are very thankful to Dr. Kurland and his staff and would recommend him and his staff to everyone, we already did exactly that. Thank you again for all you did for Robert thank you to all of you!!

Perfect experience in every way. From the initial phone contact, pre registration, reminder email and phone call to my actual appointment, professionalism and superb patient treatment was the baseline. Stephany’s thoroughness and positive attitude added to my overall satisfaction. Dr Kurland is indeed the master, he did his homework before meeting me and flawlessly addressed my medical issue, top to bottom, in words that I comfortably understood...I could not be more pleased.

Dr. Kurland is the best. My father was a general surgeon and Dr. Kurland ranks right up there with my father. With a surgeon for a father, I am extremely particular about the physicians I choose to tend to my medical care. I do not go with second best. Additionally, Dr. Kerland is kind,caring, listens and has a good sense of humor.
