Very professional and competent, but also has a good sense of humor and a good bedside manner. I trust him completely. Had both orthoscopic surgery and a complete knee replacement and was very satisfied with the surgery and the post-op treatments.

Dr Kuester has done foot surgery, replaced a knee and hip, removed a cyst, knee scope and numerous injections. He is always very professional and kind. Everything is explained so you understand and all questions answered. More important you never feel rushed. I highly recommend him.

Dr Kuester performed numerous surgeries on me including 3 carpal tunnel releases and rotator cuff repair. Casted a hair-line crack in my arm. Each time he thoroughly explained the procedure and the recovery period. My husband needed 2 hip replacements but he also had some urological issues. We explained this to Dr Kuester who came up with a plan to insert catheter during surgery and improved the experience. He takes the time to explain and answers patients questions thoroughly. Great surgeon!

Dr Kuester was excellent in helping me through my knee injury. He did a great job of explaining what was happening inside my knee and laying out the possible options for fixing it. As an athlete my ability to return to sports was very important to me. Dr Kuester walked me through the recovery periods and possible future limitations for each option. I really appreciated his honesty in each possible outcome while always remaining optimistic and never pressuring me on my decision! Great Doctor

Dr. Kuester provided excellent service. As an avid runner presenting with a hip injury, I found that Dr. Kuester provided a clear and complete explanation of the diagnosis and prognosis, skillful treatment, and creative options to help me maintain my exercise regimen. I appreciated his candor and understanding in discussing my issue, and the time he took to answer all my questions regarding future options. I have highly recommended Dr. Kuester to family and friends.
