Patient Comments (1)
Canton, IL |
Dr. Kuga is an adequate GI doctor for most GI patients. He understands the common treatments and can create a plan of action. I have had appointments cancelled on me with no notification. I live about an hour away so this has caused some major inconveniences for me. They say that another company handles those phone calls for them so it isn't their fault.
