My Father was recently hospitalized for 3 nights in which he was suspected to have a GI bleed and was found to have a very low blood count, needing transfusions. After undergoing both a colonoscopy and endoscopy by Dr. Kushner he was found to have a large mass on his colon which was also found to be cancerous. After multiple requests to talk to Dr. Kushner regarding his findings, we have still not received a phone call from Dr. Kushner. Any information we were able to obtain was from my fathers "My Chart" account. Dr. Kushner FOUND A CANCEROUS MASS IN MY FATHERS COLON AND HAS STILL NOT ADDRESSED THIS WITH US! I don't know how Dr. Kushner continues to practice medicine and still have a conscience. It is my goal to WARN EVERYONE of Dr. Kushner as it is simply not safe to entrust your care with DR. Kushner. He is a prime example of providing assembly line care. He preforms his procedures and sends you on down the line with no concern of the outcome. Shame on you, Dr. Kushner!!!

Dr. Kushner perforated my father's esophagus during a Transesophageal Echocardiography on April 22, 2019. As a result, my father required emergency lifesaving surgery to repair his esophagus. It's been 19 days since the incident and my father is still in the hospital with a feeding tube. I question Dr. Kushner's judgement to attempt the procedure since it was attempted three days prior without success. This incident has caused much pain, anger and frustration for the entire family. My father is 80 years old and its the opinion of some in the medical field that this procedure is to risky to perform on someone of his age. The first Dr. that attempted the procedure noted that there was a blockage of some sort that prevented the device to pass down my father's esophagus. I believe arrogance led Kushner to make a second attempt of his own.
