Amazing doctor! I had such a great experience with Dr. Kurt at Tower Clock. He got me back seeing again after cataract surgery. Staff was friendly and knew their stuff.

He doesn't listen. I asked questions and he weren't give me the time of day. I had a lot of concerns and was give some papers to read and when he did answer it was always the same, surgery. Wouldn't send my worse enemy to see him.
