I have been with Dr. Kurra 3 years now for cancer treatment and follow up CT scans and if I could give her 10 stars I would. She is amazing. Besides being a great doctor she is a compassionate person. She cares!! She takes time and explains everything and answers my questions without feeling rushed. She’s really a sweet, kind lady! Anyone who goes to her will not be disappointed !!

As a patient of Dr. Kurra for 6 or 7 years, I can't imagine anyone giving her less than a full "5-star" rating...unless, of course, they could give her 10 stars! She's the doctor I'd always hoped for but never found. She listens intently, often probing deeper into a topic you've mentioned, takes notes...and actually REVIEWS those notes before your next visit! When you call with a question, you get a prompt reply. Everyone adores her, and if you need her specialties, so will you!

Dr kurra listens, takes notes and asks follow up questions, doesn't rush. I highly recommend her but... Office staff did nothing to schedule scans ordered until I called 5 days after my visit. They blamed my insurance. My insurance verified the date and time authorization was put in, had processed and were waiting for a peer discussion with my dr to proceed so at no time were they the delay. Had to cancel follow up cause I'm still waiting for my scans. Office manager didn't respond to my message
