Patient Comments (6)
I am extremely pleased with Dr. Kulber's skills which included simultaneous repair of ruptured sagittal band, reconstruction of thumb and carpal tunnel . 4 certified hand surgeons had never diagnosed the sagittal band and they said the deformity of fingers was due to rheumatoid arthritis which a rheumatologist had previously told me I did not have. Dr. Kulber repaired what 4 hand surgeons had told me could not be fixed. A certified hand therapist then helped me recover full use of the hand.
Dr. Kulber is hands down the best doctor. The office is busy, but I prefer to wait to be treated by a highly reputable doctor. I had seen several doctors and the doctors were unable to treat me. Dr. Kulber knew how to handle my situation and now I only trust Dr. Kulber to take care of me. Great Job Dr. Kulber!!!!

Dr Kulber made room in his busy schedule to see my daughter on a same-day appointment. I cannot understand the some of these reviews?! Dr Kulber was kind, patient, caring, and very personable. Without delegating, he personally took care of a burgeoning infection and splinted my daughter's wrist. Based on my observations, I would have no hesitation recommending Dr Kulber to friends and family; I hope I never need his services, if I do, I would not hesitate. Thank you Dr Kulber!

Dr. Kulber is AMAZING at what he does. His surgical knowlegde is by far of most importanace to me. I had my surgury over 13 years ago and on my left wrist and it in great condition. I am writting such a late review for 2 reasons. 1. My husband had a work injury and we requested Dr. Kulber to be his surgen. Due to the amazing job he did with me. 2. I saw some reviews regarding DR. Kulber and I want to encourage people NOT to let those send you to the wrong doctors.

This doctor has a god like complex, he is arrogant, nasty, short. Surfer Dude Dr. Kulber is just plain rude. In every visit I have had with him concerning the nerve problems in my hand, wrist, and forearm, which included burning, swelling, pain, and loss of over 50 percent of strength, he acted like he was being inconvenienced and couldn't be bothered. I am obviously disabled in my right hand and can not perform my job as an auto mechanic. Couldn't be bothered to fill out a SDI form for me.

Dr Kulber is a very caring, personable and extremely talented physician. He performed reconstructive plastic surgery on our teenage son with wonderful results. Very professional caring staff as well. His surgical assistant Emily was also warm, professional, caring with the after-care. When I needed plastic surgery for myself I knew just who to go to and again, I was impressed by his amazing expertise and grateful for his warm, professional, caring manner. The results are wonderful.
