I made an appointment with Dr Kucharski this morning because my Dr in another practice was on vacation.. I had seen my Dr for the very same problem in November. Dr Kucharski was much more thorough with the exam and gave me much more advice on how to manage my symptoms. I'm switching over to use Dr K. from now on it was well worth the hour plus drive!

Dr. Kucharski did my cataract surgery..He was very excellant and did a professional and perfect surgical procedure. I will always go to him for my eye care. I have another cataract but it is not ready for surgery. Dr. Kurcharski is not the kind of Dr. to push unnecessary surgery on anyone. I like that about him. I would recommend him to everyone...Cynthia Hein
