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.
