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.

I have been seeing Dr. Kucharski since I experienced a detached retina in 2005. He has been incredible, very thorough in his exams, personally called to talk to me about options, takes the time to explain changes. I know there are many patients waiting to see him, but I never feel like he rushes to get to the next person.

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
