Dr. Kurz is attentive and thorough. Never felt like I was being rushed. Great bedside manner. Not sure why someone gave the front office staff a bad review but they have always been professional and attentive as well.

Best Gastroenterology in this area. The reviewer who criticized the "heavyset" receptionist must have been having a bad day. Rose is one of the most courteous and pleasant receptionist I have ever encountered. She should be training receptionists she is so good!

The staff is not sot very friendly or courteous, especially the heavier set woman. She is very snippy and doesnt smile. The doctor is very knowledgeable and has good bedside manner.

Dr. Kurz is the very best gastroenterologist I have ever seen. He is very knowledgeable, understanding, soft spoken, gentle and a delight to know! He is easy to speak to and he will give you all of his attention and time necessary to discuss any problems you may have. He is always anxious to cure or at least make you feel better no matter what is causing your pain or discomfort. I can not rave enough about this wonderful, young doctor!

I've never met a more caring and wonderful doctor. He was so helpful from the first time I visited his office, I've since recommended 4 friends as well as my daughter. They all love him. Very knowledgeable and he puts your mind at ease with the colonoscopy. Cant say enough wonderful things about him and his staff.

About Me

Care Philosophy

I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of common digestive conditions including colitis, irritable bowel disease (IBS), heartburn, ulcers, pancreatic and liver diseases including Hepatitis C. I also treat colorectal cancer and strongly recommend colonoscopy screening for men and women over the age of 50. Colorectal cancer is highly treatable when caught early.
