Dr. Kuhnlein has always taken great care with listening to me and making sure any medical issues are addressed. I feel very comfortable in recommending him to others. His medical assistant, Max, was also very professional and concerned with if I was comfortable with him doing an ekg on me since I was a woman. I appreciated his attention to detail.

Dr. Kuhnlein's care and passion for his patients is like I have never seen before. His knowledge of the cardiac field and bed side manners (patience with his patients) far exceeds any other doctor I have ever met with the past 60 years. Whenever I have a question or need help for me or any family member he is there for us. There is non better in his field! I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs assistance in cardiology.

Dr Kuhnlein is unfriendly and short with patients and family - two visits. His assistant gave incorrect test results at the hospital, and later came back with the correct results. This was very upsetting as the diagnosis was serious. He prescribed a maintenance drug until the procedure scheduled weeks later. He referred me to an electrophysiologist who said that the drug was absolutely incorrect for my situation. This electrophysiologist successfully performed the procedure.

My mother always told me to keep my mouth shut if I do not have anything good to say. As a long time patient Dr. Kuhnlein needs to remember why he wanted to become a physician and not hand me back a blank signed prescription.
