What People Say About Dr. Daniel Kuesis, MD

I would never recommend Dr Kuesis. In the several months he treated me, I was not any better than I was when I started. Still in a great deal of pain, of which he did nothing! He ordered a lot of tests, but, never went over a single result with me. Never really even discussed anything with me. Was in the room with me for less than 5 minutes at every appt. he & his staff were never happy if I asked any questions. They got downright rude. Absolutely no followup or follow thru with anything. Happy I am now with a different dr who knows what he is doing. If I could give him no stars, I would.

Thanks to Dr. K and his kind, caring, staff for giving me my active lifestyle back! Today marks 6 years since my knee replacement. I am able to walk 5-6 miles each day plus participate pain free in all my daily activities.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND AFTER WAITING AN MIONTH TO GET AN APPOINTMENT AT THE ILLINOIS BONE AND JOINT INSTITUTE, I WAITED AN HOUR AND A HALF WITH NO ONE COMING TO EXPLAIN WHY THE WAIT OR ASKING IF WE WOULD LIKE TO RESCHEDULE. SO GLAD I WALKED OUT ON THEM AND FOUND DR. KUESIS MANY THANKS

He performed a total knee replacement on me. From day one I have experienced significant pain and loss of range of motion, WORSE than before my knee replacement. He tried a number of procedures on me to alleviate the pain. None of them worked. He suggested more surgery, which I initially agreed to. He informed me that I had a 30% of worse pain. I decided he caused me this much pain, so why should I take a chance of more?

Dr. Keusis is an amazing Surgeon. Very thorough, professional and easy to talk too. His staff is also exceptional. Made an unfortunate incident easier to deal with.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Kuesis and all of his staff - they have been fantastic every step of the way through my hip replacement surgery. I was given all the time I needed during appointments to answer all my questions and explain the process. My surgery went very well and I am progressing ahead of schedule. I will not hesitate to recommend Dr. Kuesis and should I need a left hip replacement, I know I will return.

I am 78 years old and in August of '16 I had the good fortune to have Dr. Kuesis as my surgeon to replace my right hip. It went extremely well and my recovery was excellent. So much so that in October of '17 I had my left hp replaced with the same procedure - the anterior approach. What can I say? He is an excellent surgeon and my family was impressed with how quickly I recovered. He has also surrounded himself with a great staff especially Tom, Dave and Kim. He is my recommendation.

My experience with CORE Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and Dr. Kuesis was very positive. Dr. Kuesis is an excellent surgeon and always took the time to answer my questions. My hip replacement surgery went smoothly and healing was rapid. I feel better than ever and my legs are now the same length! Don't delay if you are in pain; trust Dr. Kuesis and his team to get you in good shape again.

Dr. Kuesis and his staff are professional, caring, and competent. I had full hip replacement at the new surgical center and walked out of there the very same day! I was able to walk without assistance by the next day and after 2 weeks of rest and physical therapy, I'm able to return to most activities. The staff at the surgical center are awesome! very accomodating and professional. My overall experience so far has been excellent and I'm very grateful to have a better quality of life once again.

Dr. Kuesis is professional and his staff is thorough and informative. Everyone involved in my surgery for hip replacement did a fabulous job and I was always treated with kindness and respect. I felt at all times like I was in the best hands possible. I shouldn't have waited so long or been so worried!

I had a total knee replacement done on August 7th. The entire procedure which was very overwhelming for a 79 year old patient was completely done with the utmost care and attention to detail. My procedure from the initial evaluation appointment thru the post -op appointment was excellent. The procedure was a complete success and I would highly recommend the entire staff at Core Orthopedics to family and friends in need of care. Everyone was caring, professional and informative. Well done !!!!!!

From the initial visit, I felt very comfortable with Dr. Kuesis and his staff. Full hip replacement at the new surgical center was great. In by 7:00, home by 4:00. Very little pain after surgery and up and walking same day. Able to walk on my own the day after and after 2 weeks of physical therapy, I'm able to go back to work. The nurses at the surgical center were wonderful, very accomodating and professional. Overall experience so far has been great.

My experience has been very good. Dr. Kuesis came highly recommended by a friend. The whole staff was helpful. Surgery went well. I had hip replacement , anterior approach. I had very little pain, was able to walk , and go up and down stairs, the next day. Dr. Kuesis and his staff are highly respected by the hospital staff and home health providers that I encountered. If you need hip replacement, and are a candidate for the anterior approach, I would highly recommend Dr. Daniel Kuesis

I had a knee replacement with Dr Keusis, and was very happy with his skill and the office staff that was extremely helpful through out. The office also has physical therapy and was lucky to have Marty as my therapist. He started out with me at my home for the 1st 2 weeks and then I saw him at Core for the rest of my treatments. He was extremely professional and more important sensitive to how difficult therapy is. Everyone else on the therapy floor is so kind & helpful, it truly makes better

First hip replacement was in 2014. I was impressed at the short recovery. Within in a few months I was walking normal with no limp or pain. Second hip replacement was even easier in 2017 because I knew the routine and what to expect and what not to do became second nature. Thanks to Dr. Kuesis and doctor assistants, I feel 100% back to normal. Also the nurses and staff cannot do enough to make you feel secure in any of your questions or request.

What a great team! Dr. Kuesis explained the procedure, re-hab, etc. and I was able to set up a surgical appointment on my first visit. It has been 2.5 Weeks since the knee replacement and I'm able to walk up/down stairs again, and am not experiencing any pain at all. I had a different procedure on the same knee 5 months earlier without results, I wish I had seen Dr. Kuesis first! I can't say enough about the patientience and caring of the entire staff. Kim, Tiffany, and of course Tom are amazing

Dr. Kuesis replaced my right knee in 3/7/17 and I was very happy with his work. While I am currently in the recovery stage, I can already tell that my surgery was a success. I no longer have the excruciating pain that I felt everyday. If you are contemplating this surgery, I would highly recommend Dr. Kuesis. I am looking forward to walking my dogs again and doing the little things that before this surgery were becoming almost impossible. Thank YOU!
