We feel so fortunate that Dr. Quinn moved to New Hampshire! Last year our son experienced a spontaneous pneumothorax which was such a scary time. Dr. Quinn showed up in our son's hospital room and said I can help you fix this. He was confident, smart, great with our son, had an incredible bedside manner and gave us confidence that he was the right doctor to be caring for our son. Our research confirmed that we were so fortunate to have Dr. Quinn here in NH. The surgery was a success and we all loved Dr. Quinn throughout the process. We were so thankful to know that such a renowned doctor in thoracic surgery had moved here to NH. During our son's follow up appts, Dr. Quinn took the time to explain everything our son may experience during the recovery process and how the surgery may effect his body while he is still growing. His words and explanations were comforting to our son and to us. We wish all doctors had the personal demeanor and knowledge that we experienced with Dr. Q!

My husband had a spontaneous pneumothorax and Dr. Quinn was his provider/surgeon. He is seriously THE BEST doctor I have ever had experience with! Not only is he an amazing surgeon, very smart and able to speak in common language that anyone can understand, but he has a great bedside manner and truly cares about his patients! He definitely goes above and beyond the call of duty! Highly recommend him!

There are simply not enough words to convey my gratitude to Dr. Curtis Quinn for all he has done for me. How frightening it was, in the wake of so many other massive health issues in my past, to find out that I had a mediastinal mass that could potentially be cancerous. Thank God Dr. Quinn came onto the scene and helped allay my fears, made me feel cared for as if I were a family member, answered my and my children's questions patiently and completely, and demonstrated a knowledge of and experience in thoracic surgery that gave me the confidence to put myself under his care with unexpected peace. At every visit, I have been treated with the utmost kindness, sincere care, and genuine concern for my well-being. I would recommend Dr. Quinn to anyone, as would my family members, as we have all observed his singularly competent and compassionate care. God bless Dr. Quinn for successfully removing the mass in my chest and for taking measures to ensure that I heal from this traumatic event.

My husband has had multiple health issues over the last 20 years. Being diagnosed with lung cancer is terrifying and having to put your faith in a doctor that you have never heard of is just as terrifying. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Quinn. Dr. Quinn has been and continues to be the most sincere, compassionate and talented physician we have had the good fortune to be treated by. I say we because Dr. Quinn includes not only the patient but their family in his treatment plan. His involvement in my husband's care goes so far above the average doctor that our gratitude cannot be expressed enough to do him justice. Never have we ever seen a doctor so involved with his patient's physical as well as emotional needs. I truly believe Dr. Quinn values his patients as if they are family.

My experience with Doctor Quinn was excellent he answers all your questions and talks to you face to face he doesn’t sit on the computer and not address your concerns. He makes you feel important. That helps a lot when your dealing with cancer or any other disease. We need more Doctors like Doctor Quinn we are human beings not computers or just a number. Thank you Dr. Quinn

Dr. Curtis Quinn, cares, communicates and is all about his patients. He once told me he has maybe five or six patients a day so he can take enough time, to listen and spend the time he needs with each one of them. After numerous tests there was not a time in my journey with him that I waited more than the time needed to get results that my phone would ring and it would be Dr. Quinn with the results. After six days went by after my latest CT scan I was so sure of him communicating having an appointment with him on the sixth day not hearing from him meant to me all was good. Sure enough at my appointment I asked him and he said if there were something to address he would of called me way before my appointment. I am very fortunate to have him as my doctor. I would recommend him to anyone that could benefit from his knowledge and services.

Dr. Quinn is my life saver. He performed a lobectomy and administered a nerve block( which lasted almost 3 month)thus I had no pain. Breathing was tough in beginning but improved daily. I couldn't have found a better doctor!

Dr. Quinn did a marvelous thing in curing my basically collapsed lung. It was collapsed as a result of a pneumonia that had formed around the lung and filled my chest cavity with fluid and a pasty material. He had to open up my chest cavity and clean out the area by hand. He basically saved my life!

Dr. Quinn and his staff fully exceeded the expectations of the care I received. Multiple procedures and office visits and they were always timely and well managed. A minimal of waiting. The staff was very helpful and attentive. Dr Quinn listened to and answered all my questions fully and with language I understood. I would recommend him without qualifications??

My wife has stage 4 ovarian cancer. From the beginning Dr. Quinn has been an integral part of her life in how he performed surgeries to rid & prevent fluid that continues collecting around her lungs. We love him! God has gifted this man with a combination of a bright mind & skillful hands. He truly listens & is very encouraging. Speaking with other doctors & nurses, they sing his praises. My wife says people NEED Dr. Quinn for what he does, they LOVE Dr. Quinn for WHO HE IS, a very special man!
