Dr. Kuritzkes is my father's doctor and we're very happy with his care. He is a good listener and addresses patients' concerns appropriately and in a timely manner. We've had experiences with other doctors who are abrasive and condescending, but Dr. Kuritzkes is kind, caring, and compassionate.

I went to this office in February and was seen by the NP. She was brisk, rude, and didn’t even perform an exam - but she gave me a stool sample kit and recommend a colonoscopy, which, at 28, is a bit aggressive when I’m otherwise healthy, active, and went in with symptoms aligning with IBS-M. Furthermore, they held my stool test results hostage. I called and requested my results and got a voicemail back saying things were normal. That’s it. No info as to what was tested, what next steps were, nothing. Fast forward 1 month and I called to get my results from them (I switched doctors) and the woman said emailing my results was impossible. In 2021, that’s absurd. Then she transferred me to another extension that went to voicemail. It took 4 calls on the same day to simply get them to offer to upload my test results to my patient portal. I don’t know how these people expect to keep patients when they treat you like you’re an inconvenience. All I can say is go somewhere else!

I was very disappointed with Dr. K and his bedside manner. He was rude and rushed and unsympathetic. He also started my colonoscopy without making sure that I was asleep. I had to tell him I was still awake. He may know his medical stuff but I would never go back to him again.

Rude Rude Rude I have worked several Doctors and front desk customer service skills stink. I called this morning at 10 03 am desperate to find an appointment when I was getting "assisted" to find an appointment The receptionists smart remarks and tone was unacceptable . Sorry DR. but everything is based on first impressions and whoever helped me HUNG UP on me without saying BYE or HAVE A GOOD DAY just simply hung up after providing me two days that did not work for me since I needed something urgent. Its barley 10 am and your employee sounds frustrated or just plain UNHAPPY with her job. Not okay. Please improve.

Recently had a routine colonoscopy. Everything went very smoothly. Dr. Kuritzkes is one of the very few doctors who does not make you wait when you show up for an appointment. He is friendly, efficient, and well-organized. He prepared a written report immediately without any prompting. Highly recommend.

Dr Kuritzkes has been my doctor for over 20 years.....I have had several colonoscopies performed by him....He is terrific and caring and a great doctor. He has a wonderful bedside manner and takes time to explain and follow up with all the information you need to know about your procedures. His staff is helpful, kind and thorough. I wouldn't go to any other doctor.

Desk Personnel, Doctor Kuritzkes and Scheduling made me feel that my well-being and needs were a priority. Although my wait for Dr. K was longer than I anticipated, any concern I had was quickly disarmed by Dr. K's apology, coming in the room. He left me with the feeling that he truly cared, not only about me physically, but also that that my time is as valuable as his. (It isn't) His explanation of the procedure and answers left me at ease. Everyone displayed "Patient Service," to be emulated!
