Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

A few years ago Dr. Kuhn diagnosed my COPD. On my return visits he and staff were very attentive and friendly. I am visiting my daughter and have medical issues. Am hoping I can get an appointment soon. I think he is a terrific doctor.

Dr. Kuhn was my dads physician and mine. He is always prompt and courteous and you don't feel like he rushes to get you out. He is there for you and listens.

Dr. Kuhn's secretary lied to us about cost of sleep studies. We called to resolve the issue when we got the surprise bill. The office manager got aggressive and accused us of threatening her at the mere mention of the Better Business Bureau when she refused to consider resolving the issue peacefully. Then she lied in her response to the BBB complaint. And Dr. Kuhn is not being responsible either. Perhaps the worst part about this situation is the attitude from this office. All thumbs down!

I was referred to Dr. Kuhn by many family and friends. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about him, and I have witnessed his amazing care and compassionate bedside manner first-hand when I had loved-ones in the ICU at SHMC. He spends more than adequate time with his patients in the office, and I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes to be seen. I highly recommend Dr. Kuhn! Couldn't be happier with my care.

I had an appointment scheduled for 10:30 this morning with Dr. Kuhn. After waiting over 45 minutes to see the doctor I had to wait further while a pharmaceutical sales rep (who did NOT have an appointment and arrived after me) was able to speak to Dr. Kuhn. When I spoke to the office manager about this she emphasized the importance of the free samples Dr. Kuhn was receiving over my appointment. Needless to say, I have asked Dr. Kuhn's office for my medical files in search of another Doc.
