Learn about Dr. Kurtz

Care Philosophy

Osteopathic physicians focus on preventative care. D.O.'s receive extra training in the musculoskeletal system of nerves, muscles and bones. This training provides them with a better understanding of how injury or illness in one part of your body can affect another part. Using Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) D.O.'s use their hands to diagnose injury, illness, alleviate pain, restore motion and encourage your body's natural tendency toward good health. This approach offers patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine. Valley View Wellness offers onsite access to additional medical professionals in chiropractic, foot and ankle care, physical therapy, and nutritional consultation. Their in-office diagnostic testing includes x-ray, ultrasound, EKG and mobile MRI for patient convenience and immediate results.

Dr. Kurtz is the absolute best doctor anyone could ever hope for. I have been going to him since he first began. He has saved my life and he has saved my sanity. He is more than a great Doctor , Dr. Kurtz is a truly wonderful human being. You could not find a better , more caring ,understanding individual.

I have never been to a doctor who cares as much as Dr. Kurtz. He is amazing. I've been sick for a long time and no Dr could figure out what was wrong. Well, Dr Kurtz listened to me intently and never gave up on me until we figured out what was wrong. I now live close to 100 miles away but still see him Bc of his extreme care and understanding. He fought for me in my permanent disability case too.

My husband's BP was very high when he went for a dental cleaning. He didn't have a family doctor at the time. A friend referred me to Dr. Kurtz. I called the office and explained the situation and the receptionist told me bring your husband in and Dr. Kurtz will see him. Dr. Kurtz already had a full schedule. My husband was seen by Dr. Kurtz who started him on BP meds while he was still in the exam room. Dr. Kurtz is very caring and very knowledgeable.

I was first referred to Dr. Kurtz by an Army colonel at Los Alamitos. He told me that he was the best he had ever had for him and his family. After going to him for the past to years now, I can truly tell you that all that my colonel had said was true and more. Dr. Kurtz has far and away been the best doctor I have ever had and his clinic has almost everything anyone would need all in one convenient location...I give Valley View Wellness and Dr. Kurtz my highest recommendation.
