I have seen Dr. Kurtz several times for hemorrhoid banding and the results have been excellent. The minimal pain caused by the procedure subsides quickly and within 24 hours I feel great. My referral to him was a God send in terms of relieving my pain.

Old comments say Dr KURTZ has poor bedside manner. He must have read that bc I could tell he made an effort to smile . Most surgeons I know aren't warm & fuzzy types. He's courteous, can be perceived as abrupt but the longer I know him, he warmed up. Yes, his humor is dry but he's witty. He's an excellent, careful surgeon; I don't care that he initially came off as detached. Plus his PA is smart, kind & follows up.

I wish I could give 0 stars. My mom had her gallbladder removed by this doctor--an in-and-out procedure ended up keeping her in the hospital for 10 days. He yelled at her when she said she was still in pain. Another doctor at the hospital finally talked him in to doing a CAT scan which found the abcess causing all the pain. He spent less than 1 minute each time he visited, and actually talked with my mother while she was sitting on the toilet--he would not wait one minute so she could get up.
