This so-called doctor left my wife blind.Of course no one is perfect, and one always hopes for the best but fears for the worst. This so-called doctor I have live to despise since she left my wife basically legally blind-every day of our lives.The big thing is:she said"Everything will be all right,fine",which turned out to be a huge lie, sadly. She should NOT be allowed to perform surgery on ANYONE. Worst of worst.I would never let her even close to my pets for operation.

Waiting times and rudeness of this provider are outrageous. Over 3.5 hours of wait for 5 mins interaction with doctor! Not even a simple apology offered. Rude and disrespectful to patients needs.
in Spring Hill, TN |
When I visit Dr. Kuchtey, she has already considered my case and has mapped out a course of action to the point of proactively anticipating questions and actions of my other eye specialist. She always has time to listen to and answer question. The only drawback with this physician is because she is so good, she is highly sought after so be prepared to wait in the office a "minute or two" before seeing her!
