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.
