Dr. Kushner is incredible! He is so wonderful. His knowledge is only out done by his intelligence. I love the way he talks to me. He is a straight shooter and tells you exactly what is going on. Nobody could ask for a better Neurologist! To have him so close by is really such a lucky break for me. . . it is wonderful. He takes such great care in what he is doing. Yes, he also cares!! Seeing Doctor Kushner is amazing. I would recommend him to all my friends & family.

Dr. Kushner was very attentive and caring. He did not rush during the visit.

Dr. Kushner is very knowledgeable about nerve and spine health... he is currently treating me for degenerative disk disease; he takes the time to listen to me, and carry out the tests he needs to monitor my recovery... I drive over 50 miles one way to see him, as the 'big' city Drs. do not have time to treat their patients as they should... Please don't retire any time soon!!
