Dr. Kushner has treated me for the last eight years. First for gastritis and then for a routine colonoscopy. He is so professional, comforting and confident. Having a comforting confident presence means a lot when waiting for anesthesia and being scared. He is so responsive to questions and does his reports immediately. He also treated my husband and diagnosed him with celiac disease. My husband had no idea and did not know why he could not keep down food after eating pasta & other glutton for 50+ years. After seeing multiple doctors who told him he needed to take Pepto-Bismol, Dr. Kushner performed an endoscopy and diagnosed him. My husband has been fine ever since after changing his diet

Dr Kushner and Dr Kors were wonderful. They are extremely professional, thorough and caring. The prep for a colonoscopy isn’t fun but the procedure itself with Dr Kushner is easy. He has a wonderful bedside manner and his staff are all great.Done for 5 more years!

Dr. Kushner saw my sister and misdiagnosed her for appendicitis, which almost cost my sister her life. Her appendix subsequently ruptured which landed her in the hospital. If you are practicing internal medicine for 27 years and you can't diagnose appendicitis, then I am of the opinion that you should not be practicing at all.
