      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
