I am currently a patient of Dr. Kucherov and I would give higher than a five star rating if I was able to. I suffered from cluster headaches commonly known as suicide headaches from 2006 -2010 at its peak. The doctor was able to help reduced my headache over the years. My headaches are now in a dormant state. I currently see the Doctor for other medical needs and he is by far the best physician I have encountered in the Hudson Valley. He had changed my life significantly. He’s a true champion neurologist in my book.

I love Dr Kucherov he is caring, knowledgeable, takes his time listening to what is going on. I have seizures and head trauma, he has gotten my seizures under control; whenever I was hospitalized he was right there. The wait time is worth it because I know he is taking his time caring for another pt, and he takes the same amount of time with me. I would highly recommend him as a physician for anyone with a neurological problem. I had difficulty accepting the mental and physical changes that occurred after my head trauma and he helped with that tremendously, can never thank him enough for his care.

A very caring and smart Doctor. I have been to so many doctors with no improvement. Dr. Kucherov offered many different treatments that I have not heard of or even knew about. He is very patient and listeners intently to his patients. I did not wait long, but if I had to wait a little longer, he is worth the wait. He doesn’t rush you out the door if you are unclear or still have valid questions. If he is ever behind schedule for that reason, it shows his dedication to help and treat his patients.

Dr. Kucherov has been very helpful with my MS. He is always very attentive and always takes his time when I’m in with him. I have been able to get appointments quickly and if I need to call the office with a question the office staff is very helpful. They ask the doctor and return my call fast.

Dr. Kucherov correctly diagnosed a nerve problem for my wife which several other doctors, including a surgeon at N.Y.U. Langone did not identify. He may be somewhat eccentric but in my opinion he is the best neurologist in this area. {Having previously seen several}

Until my last appalling appointed I would have given this doctor three stars for somewhat satisfactory treatment, but when I saw him recently for a routine follow-up exam he hadn't reviewed my records and had no idea who I was. His questions were puzzling and he prescribed a medication that I realized was contraindicated due to my medical history and age. I left a message for him to call me about my concerns, but instead he sent a letter informing me no longer accepted me as his patient.

Always unreasonable wait times of an hour or more, and then little time spent in office with dr. Seems unsympathetic to how difficult dementia can be. Seems ill-equipped for this particular condition and type of patient. Rude reception desk as well. We were told that we have to wait an hour because that's how Dr Kucherov is. When I asked if we could come in later, was told we still had to come in on time and just wait. Apparently his time is more valuable than ours.
