My 90 year old father presented to Dr. Kushner with congestion, muscle aches, dizziness and a 103 degree fever. Dr. K told my father it was an allergy and told him to take an antihistamine. Unbelievable! I took him to an urgent care facility where he was correctly diagnosed with the flu.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Kushner for around 30 years, even before he opened up the current office. His medical knowledge is top notch, and he has an excellent way of explaining things in a clinical yet not confusing way. We trust his judgement explicitly.

I have complete confidence in the care I receive from Dr. Kushner. He truly takes the time to listen and thoroughly evaluate any...Read More
