I have been going to Dr. Kuchera for many years now. I have the highest confidence in his judgement & trust him to give me the best care as he is always very thorough. I always feel comfortable and respected. His staff seems very attentive and clearly concerned about us as patients. I would recommend Dr. Kuchera to anyone seeking a professional experience.

If I could give Dr. Kuchera 10 stars, I would. I have been under the amazing care of this man for many years. It is important for a woman to have the right OB/GYN-one she can feel comfortable with and confident in. Dr. Kuchera is not only professional, experienced and very knowledgeable, but also compassionate, caring, and easy to talk to. He never rushes me and he answers all my questions putting me at ease. He is the best OB/GYN there is. I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.

Dr. Jim is fantastic!!! He is extremely thorough, has a wonderful bedside manner and goes beyond the call of duty for his patients. His demeanor is always very calm and collected and he takes the time to explain procedures and processes so that his patients are well informed at all times. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Jim and I highly recommend both him and his practice.
These hacks almost killed my son and left him with spastic quad CP. He is non verbal and non mobile. They shuffled me through my second pregnancy since my first was good and failed to properly diagnose a virus I contracted while pregnant. Their carelessness ruined my life.

Dr. James Kuchera delivered 3 of my 4 children. The oldest now being 24 yrs old. To say that he is the most caring and amazing Dr. is an understatement. Both he and his brother Michael are amazing! When I was pregnant with my daughter who is now 23 yrs old, I went into early labor and I needed to have a sonogram done quickly. Since there was no one to take me to the test quickly, Dr. Kuchera pushed my bed to the test himself, waited and brought me back to my room! I think this says it all!!

I met Dr. Kuchera 27 years ago when he was practicing in a group.Going to a group, you never know who you will get . Happily, Dr. Kuchera, who was the doctor I hoped to deliver my first child , was there. I joined him once he opened his new practice and have been his patient for all these years. Dr. Jim, as he is called, is the most gentle, kind, efficient and informative doctor. I recommend him most of all for how comfortable he makes you feel with his caring and gentle demeanor. Excellent!!!

Dr. Jim is an amazing doctor, & I would highly recommend him and his practice! Dr. Jim just performed my scheduled C-section, and while this was my first baby & I was quite nervous, he put me at ease and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. Not only is Dr. Jim a true professional, but he genuinely cares about his patients. When we found out the baby was breech, I trusted him completely to deliver my baby safely, just like how my mom trusted him to deliver me 30 years ago!!

Dr. Jim is AWESOME! He delivered my son in 2014 and is one of the sweetest doctors I have ever met! He takes his time and explains everything in detail. Since i have started seeing Dr. Jim I have referred my mom to him. She also loves him! He is kind and takes time and listens to my concerns during all office visits. I had some complications while in the hospital during the delivery of my son and Dr. Jim was fantastic. I felt very confident in Dr. Jim and would highly recommend him to all!
