Dr Kuper is an amazing & caring Dr. He was not quick to jump into surgery. He has a more conservative approach trying to help lesson the hurting. I haven't felt this good in years. Just from an injection. Thank you Dr Kuper!

Dr Kuper is an excellent Dr. You would be very lucky to ever be treated by somebody so caring.

I had a consultation with Dr. Kuper. I was so impressed. I had been to several other Dr's and they all only recommended surgery. Dr. Kuper is a very conservative surgeon. I don't have time to recover because I have 3 small children. He recommended an injection. I thought, sure, why not. It beats surgery. After getting approval from my insurance, his nice office staff called and scheduled me in. I had the injection and it was like instant relief. Dr. Kuper is a God Send!

The clerical staff refused to see me today without paying a $100+ amount of the the so called $300.00 insurance deductible. Problem is, I do not have a deductible with Tri-Care Prime. Despite me saying that their information is incorrect and that Tri-Care has confirmed that I only need to pay $12 the staff were rude and not willing to clear up the confusion without my persistence. After finally reluctantly telling Tri-Care that they would take their word for it...I was see. Never any appology!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. K. A year ago I was not able to walk now I am able to. With pain management & physical therapy.

I was just dropped meds wise. He claimed I had Tylenol 3 in my urine 3 weeks ago....and...now the DEA is telling him he cannot prescribe narcs to me ever again. This is the thing That Tylenol3 was NOT in my urine ! i never took anything other than what he had prescribed. I was on Morphine and Hydrocodone for a year and he dropped me cold turkey ! I now face withdrawls, and the fear of that pain returning the meds helped me live life again, and I cannot handle the thought of the pain returning.

My experience at Kuper's office is a Shity one. I started seeing him in March, I made a mistake and was put on Probation. Now they claim that I am Red Flagged by the DEA and I was getting pain meds from my PCP. My Pharmacy printed out my Meds for a year and 1 from the DEA. It shows no Red flags and last Pain Meds were in March. Now they are claiming that I am discharged from the program. Well I am not one to sit back and do nothing, I am a fighter. His Employees better watch out they started it

Dr. Kuper took the time to find out where I lived, and referred me to a doctor in the same area. He was kind and courteous. Three years ago, he performed surgery on my back for scoliosis, and I thought that he was the best doctor I'd ever had.
in Aledo |
This Doctor only wants as much money as he can get from your insurance. He does not care about the patient. I do NOT recommend Kuper to anyone! He will not let you go to a physical therapy of your choice. He blames things on the insurance and lies. You will wait hours. He seems like a nice guy, don't be fooled. He is taking you for all the insurance money he can get. If you saw him for a back problem get a second opinion and if he was your second opinion get a 3rd! Do not let this man touch you.
Aledo, TX |
I went to him for a bulging disc on my c6-c7 and he repaired with no problems, but was very flaky always had to wait long past my appointment time and his staff was incompetent they even released me back to work without telling me almost costing me my job. I came to him a second time for problems with my lower back he told me it could be handled without surgery that it was a little bulge, I had 3 other doctors tell me that it was worst than what Kuper had told me and that I would need surgery.
in Fort Worth, TX |
it is good except he does not give your meds the same day you have to wait ,and wait next day /

I went in with nothing more than severe pain and was told I would be at least 85% better after surgery. That if I did not have this scoliosis surgery I was at risk of my internal organs being crushed. I could walk, with pain but had no other problems. I am now crippled and bedridden.
Surgery made my condition worse than before my surgery. When I asked him about it, he said to give it two years. That has been 5 years ago and there has been no improvement. His office staff is completely inefficient and I waited two hours after my appointment before I finally got to see him. If you get referred to him, ask for someone else.
in Ft Worth, TX |
We walked out of his office when we went for a second visit because not only did he make us wait two hours after our set appointment time, but when they brought us in, It was to a PT room, not an exam room and we were told that he didn't have time for us. We walked out. I'll never recommend him to anyone. His staff is rude and condescending and don't really care how long you've waited.

I must have been completely misunderstood about what pain management is. I had surgery and my mess were reduced ??? Doesn't it take pain control to heal from surgery? Very disappointed in my experience with this clinic. I understand that people abuse there medications but I never ran out, never asked for more, and never missed my appointments Dr. or counseling.
Ft Worth, TX |
Test results were not gone over. He went in and out of the office several times while I was asking a question. Felt like I was an inconvenience. Lack of information given also happened with his staff.

Was sent to him by my PCP for my injury on my left foot /ankle!and my neck ( recovery from my broken neck)
