I didn't realize what a good doctor, Dr. Kurian is until I decided to get another doctor closer to my side of town. I won't say who the other doctor was, but, this other office, assistants looked down on everyone and made us look like we were doing something wrong for taking our medications. I feel bad enough having to take the medication, i don't need help. Also, Dr. Kurian's office is nice and clean. Not only that, Dr. Kurian really cares about his people & does everything he can to help us.

I’ve been a satisfied patient of Dr. Kurian for a few years now and feel my review is consequential. The wait time is minimal assuming you arrive in a timely manner. He’s willing to spend the necessary time with you but doesn’t prolong the appointment nonsensically. Recently we discussed some potential dangerous and unwanted medication side effects. Without hesitation an immediate precautionary change was made. I strongly recommend Dr. Kurian if you’re wanting to enhance your quality of life

I usually have an appointment at 9 but still have to wait 30 to 45 minutes before seeing you . Please work on reducing the amount of wait time. The furniture in the exam room is not conducive to comfortability for patient suffering from back injuries. They look as though they were purchased at thrift stores and the chairs are not supportive.

My experience is that I believe this place is an opiate prescription mill. I was asked over and over what is my pharmacy, how many pharmacies do I use, etc. When I responded that I only use one pharmacy they responded with skepticism. I had clearly marked on my patient form that I do not want any opioids, and I waned treatment on my spine. They responded "really?" There were many red flags with these people that something was not right. When I finally got in, my suspicions were correct.

I went to Dr. Kurian when I hurt my back. He spend alot of time with me to diagnose me properly. Had really good bed side manners. Made me feel comfortable. His office staff is also very friendly and does a good job making you feel welcome.

Constantly late for prescription refill requests, won't answer phones or return messages left, blames patient when confronted for poor office management/Rx refill tardiness, denies potential danger of injections for my specific medical condition (says its not true even though I can go to individuals who had severe adverse reactions,) they file me under Dr Kurian yet I never get to see him anymore at appointments even when requested, refusal to fully treat pain after complications to 2nd injury

I've been seeing Dr. Kurian since my ceevical fusion broke and hashe given me constant extremely painful nerve damage. He is always looking for new ways to treat the pain, is very open minded aND has a wonderful bedside manner. He spends time with me, listens and offers solutions or new methods we can try. I have found him to be one of the best pain management doctors in the area.

1)nurse assistant intimidated patient and ridiculed her over weight gain due to no mobility 2) injections, too many, pushed even though did not work since medication dispensing did not bring money in. 3) charged $240 for 23 min visit when visit done in 8 min. 4) constant urine drug tests looking for a medication that no longer taking and patient expressed worry over cancer medicine causing liver to not filter drug out. 5) kicked out and treated as a drug addict not a pain patient after $ pd
