in Sun City West, AZ |
I was referred to Dr. Kurli by the Mayo clinic. Dr. Kurli is outstanding an outstanding physician with a great chairside manner. The staff is friendly and professional and obviously well trained. I would not hesitate for a moment to refer her to anyone desiring competent, capable and professional care. Yea Dr. Kurli!
Tempe, AZ |
Dr. Kurli and her staff are always courteous and caring. I love coming to the office as they get to know you personally and always greet you with a smile. They never over book and rush you. I've never had to wait either. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my sight!
Tempe, AZ |
Dr. Kurli is honestly the best doctor I've ever seen! She is caring and professional and spends time making sure you understand your diagnosis. She also was able to get me in on an emergency basis when I was worried about my eye. I can't thank her enough.
Mesa, AZ |
In addition to being very skilled, knowledgeable, and professional, she and her staff create a warm, loving, and caring environment--something not always found in doctor's offices in the Valley today.
in Scottsdale, AZ |
Dr. Kerli has literally saved my sight, she has stabilized the sudden AMD that struck my eye sight after a routine eye exam at the Mayo Clinic. They emphatically recommended DR. Kurli to utilize her state of the science evaluation equipment at her retina and eye center. She provided me with a complete examination and treatment protocol for my condition. I am delighted to say that my vision degradation has substantially improved with her treatment regimentation.She is my Hero, Thanks
in Scottsdale, AZ |
A couple of years ago I had retinal surgery elsewhere and every time I went for a check up, heard nothing but doom and gloom about what could happen next. Once I started seeing Dr. Kurli, it was like a weight was lifted. She is a breath of fresh air taking the time to fully explain what actually happened. I now feel like I have a partner in my retinal health and am nothing but positive about the future. She is the best!
in Tijeras, NM |
I was referred to Dr. Kurli in Phoenix after being told I had Melonoma on my Retina from a specialist in NM. I was understandably worried. After being examined Dr. Kurli gave me the best news I have ever had. Not only did I not have Melonoma but the freckle was so small that even if it did turn bad we would be able to handle it easily. Even if the news had been bad I believe Dr. Kurli would have been the best Doctor for the job. She is so focused and competent. I would trust her totally.
