Dr. Kurland is a fantastic Vascular Surgeon who performed surgery on my leg when another doctor gave me no hope. He was able to restore blood flow to my leg giving us hope. He has a terrific bedside manner and is extremely competent and knowledgeable. He and his staff are very efficient and make you comfortable during the procedure. Recommend highly.

Dr. Kurland performed a carotid artery surgery on my husband, by placing a stint to clear the blockage. He was so kind and efficient, from our very first visit until post surgery. So grateful to Dr. Kurland for saving my husband’s life.
