What People Say About Dr. Curtis Koontz, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
He's very tall! Dr. Koontz was wonderful. He was so down to earth and would answer any question we were concerned with. My son was very comfortable with him and never felt intimidated by his presence, although he was our son's doctor, we felt as if he was our doctor as well. ...a very engaging physician. Thank you Dr Koontz and staff members for making an unfortunate incident less stressful for the entire family. You will never be forgotten. God Bless!
