Dr. Kuchera, despite my pain and history of suffering, refused to prescribe any antibiotics and said they would just prescribe the cream (that didn't help me at all). I can't wait to return to VA to see my Gynecologist who actually understands those with chronic and severe yeast infections and understands that creams do not work! If you suffer from infections, I'd recommend finding a different doctor.

Love Dr. Mike. Explained everything about the procedure I needed to have done step by step. I had several questions and he took the time to answer all of them thoroughly. He has a great bed side manor and made me feel at ease every step of the way. I also really like the majority of his staff members. Friendly and helpful.

I had an awful experience with dr mike. He talks to you like you're stupid. I'm currently switching practices. I will never step foot in that office again. Except to pick up my records. PS-The nurse Donna is just as awful and inconsiderate.

I delivered two babies with this practice. My first is amazing. My second baby was born with a virus called Cytomegalorvirus and this was not discovered by anyone until I was almost 35 weeks pregnant. I almost lost my baby and he is severely affected with brain damage. I was ushered through exams since it was my second child and my first was fine. I most likely contracted the virus from my first child. My life has been ruined. I wish I had never used these doctors.

Dr. Mike is an excellent doctor, as are all of the doctors in the practice! Dr. Mike saw me numerous times throughout my pregnancy and made me feel calm and comfortable at each visit. He is highly competent and caring, always answering my questions and taking the time to explain anything that needed explaining. I highly recommend him!!
