Bowling Green, KY |
What a horrible doctor- called to make an appointment and the phone had been disconnected. Found out he had closed his practice. NO warning - NO help finding another doctor. He just abandoned his patients.
Bowling Green, KY |
Dr. Curtis is kind, listens to what you have to say, and gets things done. If it wasn't for him another MD would still be running useless test for no reason other than to charge me for an office visit.

Dr. Curtiss is the first (of 4 gastroenterologists) I have seen over the years who said that IBS cannot be controlled with diet. He practically saved my life by finding precancerous tissue in my esophagus and got me on a course of 2 meds and reversed that condition. I see him once every 5 years and think he is wonderful.
Bowling Green, KY |
My visit to this clown was a total waste of time and money. With very little diagnosis, he just guessed at what my condition might be and even based on that recommended no course of treatment whatsoever. If someone is experiencing gastrointestinal issues, I would definitely recommend they seek a different doctor.
Bowling Green KY |
Have gone to this doctor for years. Level of service has become awful. His office staff never answers the phone, it goes to voice mail every time, and then they WILL NOT CALL YOU BACK. Have had this happen repeatedly. No one should have to beg for a return call, but that's how it is here. Requests to speak to Doctor by phone are ignored. I will be finding a new doc because Dr Curtiss and his staff have for some time now made it clear they do not care about my care as a patient!! ??
Bowling Green, KY |
Unlikely. No treatment. Can't get information about tests. If he can't find your problem at first, he basically is done with you. And the wait in his office is horrible. I didn't want to give him any stars, but the site won't let me.
