Dr. Kushner was been my GP since I had open heart surgery in November 1993. Excellent doctor. Has been working closely with my cardiology the last 25+ years to make you I remain healthy. He sincerely cares about his patients. I would recommend Dr. Kushner and Forest Healthcare to anyone.

I have been a patient f Dr. K. for three years. He is patient and listens to whatever I have to say. He returns my calls and answers any questions posed to him. I never feel rushed on my visits with him. He is a caring physician.

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.

I did not have any serious problems or complaints and my first visit was perfunctory at best. But when I called him with a question about a test he recommended (at my suggestion), his response revealed his disinterest, and he did not offer an answer or offer to research the answer. Not exactly what I am looking for.

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 began seeing Dr. Kushner 5 years ago when my former primary care physician moved out of my area - she recommended Dr. Kushner to me. Her recommendation was spot on. I have complete confidence in the care I receive from Dr. Kushner. He truly takes the time to listen and thoroughly evaluate any concerns, and does not rush through appointments. He has a wonderful personality as well. He is a knowledgeable and caring physician.
