Dr. Kuriata's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kuriata "I bring highly specialized knowledge and skills in medical, surgical, and cosmetic skin care to Southwestern Michigan. Having been born and raised in nearby Dowagiac, Michigan, I was eager to provide services to my home town and surrounding communities. After completing my dermatology residency in Kirksville, Missouri in 1999, I moved to St. Joseph, Michigan to start my dermatology practice, Advanced Dermatology. In 2016, after many years of seeing patients out of Borgess Lre Memorial Hospital, I opened a satellite office, Advanced Dermatology, in the James E. Snow Professional Building in Dowagiac, Michigan."

Dr. Kuriata is the BEST Dermatologist I have ever gone too. not only is he professional, he's kind and listens very well. Have no reservations about going to him. His staff is very friendly and helpful. He has changed my life; I had mohs surgery on a spot on my face that was cancerous that I did't know about. After the surgery he completely removed the cancer. Had I not gone to him, I wouldn't be writing this review today. I owe my life to Dr. Kuriata. Thank you Dr. Danny Kantner.............

Very satisfied with my experiences here. He takes his time and never makes you feel rushed if you have a question. Just had a spot removed and he took such care with what he was doing to make the process comfortable for me and to ensure future healing.
