Patient Comments (2)
Willimantic, CT |
Dr. Kuwada is simply the best physician our family ever encountered during my husband's almost 3.25-year journey with a serious illness. Dr. Kuwada treated him as though he was a family member, exuded the utmost professionalism and care, including emotionally. We know he spent off-hours considering options for my husband. He also took the time to discuss complicated topics in-depth, even if they took longer periods of his time or required emergency appointments. Our family is indebted to him.

I went to Dr. Kuwada for a relatively routine procedure, but he performed it with such skill and perfection that I would trust him for problems much more complicated and consequential.
