Treats you like you're wasting his precious time. Doesn't bother to look at your file and runs out of the visit before you can ask a question. One of the worst doctors I've ever seen .

Dear Dr. Kugler from the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank you and your staff for the care I received before, during and after my surgery on January 17, 2018. I truly believe that your expertise, passion for your job and willingness to be flexible are what brought me to where I am today. I will always be grateful to all for your help and your kindness. With much love, Svetlana Abramian.

In 2014 Dr Kugler did two knee replacement surgeries on me. He was very honest and explained everything to me and my wife. I did all the therapy he recommended to me and i am doing great. I would highly recommend him. He may be tough with you but in the end you will be glad he was! I have had no problems what so ever! I go once a year for a checkup and never have i had a problem.

Waste of your time. Don't go to him, he doesn't care about you, he won't listen to what you have to say. And you'll waste your money. He knew what was wrong with my back and didn't tell me everything from looking on my MRI review..I had to find out from a different doctor to get my full results...so disappointing

I tore my meniscus and went to see Dr. Kugler. He stood in the doorway and told me I didn't need surgery. He never looked at my leg or examined me. He never looked at my MRI disc. He just told me to go for physical therapy. Total time spent with me about 3 minutes. Turned out I did need surgery, but of course found a much better doctor. This guy is a sorry excuse for a doctor. Find someone else.

My husband broke his hip in an accident... he was forced to wait 5 days under sedation for repair... when it was repaired by Dr. Kugler - it was crooked. His leg had an awkward angle to it, he was in pain - even when he tried to sleep. He was told that it was so damaged - that was the best that could be done when he had to replaced the hip. 3 years later we had to see a different doctor - he replaced the dr. kugler's work and he is SO MUCH BETTER!

Dr. Kugler is incredible! I had a torn meniscus and partially torn ACL and petella tendon and the The whole surgical team and nursing staff with Dr.Kugler is also incredible. I was really surprised when Dr. Kugler called me after my surgery to see how I was doing. He truly cares about his patients. I will be recommending Dr.Kugler to all of my friends and family! Very thankful to him and his team. I have another scheduled with Dr.Kugler I will never go to another surgeon!

I had a total Knee replacement by Dr Kugler, he is an excellent surgeon, I am so please and happy with the results. In 3 months he will do my other knee. My overall experience was very good, he is a gentle teddy bear. Thank you Dr Kugler for your nice care. Mercedes

I am 57 years old. I have never seen in my life an anti professional doctor as DR. Kugler.. He is very rude with his patience, he does not tell a patience what the problem. I went to see him for a knee pain. he told me to get and injection, and told the nurse if she decides it let me know, without any explication about it and without let me ask him some question that I told him that I would like to ask him. I will never recommended him. He does not have any Medical Ethic.
