Wow! We made a next day appointment with Dr. Kuri! We were very concerned about my daughter's murmur. Dr. Kuri made sure we got the echocardiogram we needed in a timely manner. He has a great bedside manner as well.

Dr. Kuri is most professional and personable.
in San Antonio, TX |
Waited over one hour for a confirmed appointment. After an hour, I asked what's up - was told three more patients ahead of me. Left after 75 minutes and unlikely to return. Should have been told at check-in that there was a delay and be given option to wait or reschedule. Good doctor maybe, but bad, really mismanagement staff. Will send a bill for my wasted time, just like when one has to pay for an appointment not kept. Suggest you find someone else, if time is an issue. There are plenty

Waiting 60 minutes (1 hour) after scheduled time to see the doctor; can't say anything about his skill yet, but his help are nice. I'll keep you posted if he ever comes in to see me.
