Saw him once and set up for removal of a spinal cord stimulator. Went back for my ONE and ONLY post operative appointment and saw a Nurse Practitioner, NOT the Dr. The NP never looked at my back, ask to look at my back and never discussed any MRI results that I had performed. I was seen for one POV and my insurance was charge when POV's are included in Surgery. Because he documented that HE saw me, I owe a copay! What a SCAM! NO ONE looked at my back or discussed anything!!

I don't think you can find a Doctor with more knowledge and integrity that Dr. Kurtom. He saved me from a major operation that I did not need. I always thought you had to go to the Western Shore of Maryland for anything major. I am thrilled to know that for my needs, the best doctor is right here in Easton. Thank you Dr Kurtom!

My primary gp, upon discovering my brain tumor promptly sent me to Dr. Kurtom located in Easton, MD. Just to be sure, I made an appointment at Hopkins as well because everyone knows you need to get across the bridge for this kind of medical treatment. Upon leaving Dr. Kurtom's office I promptly cancelled my Hopkins appointment. Dr. Kurtom, thanks to his sacrifice, dedication, discipline and hard work earns the title "gifted surgeon" and can be trusted with your life. I know for he saved mine

Dr.Kurtom was great, everything that i had been told before hand was correct. He listens and explains everything so the average patient can understand whats going to take place. His entire staff is so professional.All paperwork that you need is provided to you in plenty of time before your scheduled appt. All appts. are scheduled for you , you don't have to do anything but show up. I can't say enough about his surgery coordinator Cystal. She is friendly and very professional.

Outstanding Physician, top notch care, excellent surgery on July 14,2016. He and his staff were absolutely fantastic, if you have to have a neurological procedure this is the Doctor and staff you need. This physician cares, the staff is professional, caring, attentive, and the greatest. Can not say enough about my procedure, the hospital, pre-op, post-op, and outcome. TOP DRAWER, TOP NOTCH, THE BEST.

The entire neurosurgery group was outstanding. My entire experience was beyond what I imagined in expedience, efficiency and surgical outcome. I think my recovery is better because of the efficient progress from diagnosis through surgery.

Dr. Kurtom has a wonderful bed side manner! He is very confident and easily puts the patient at ease. I had no reservations about having surgery. Although the recovery is challenging, his office staff is available and willing to answer any questions that may arise. I am very pleased with Dr. Kurtom's surgical skills and highly recommend him if you are considering having surgery!

Calling a neurosurgeon and artisan may sound strange, but Kahlid Kurtom is indeed an expert craftsman and phenomenally skilled surgeon. He basically rebuilt my neck. I cannot over state how comfortable he made me feel each time we spoke and how genuine he was about answering questions and treating the whole patient, not just my vertebrae. Dr. Kurtom's team of professionals, most notably the anesthesiologist AND the nursing staff at Easton were also amazing.
