My brother is disabled and very hard to understand, Dr K, and his teen did a wonderful job taking care of our family and helping advocate for us. Thank you do very much.

Dr. Kuritzkes performed my colonoscopy ten years ago and I am now in the process of having that procedure repeated as a matter of preventative care. He is very easy to talk to and spends as much time as needed to discuss issues and concerns.

Dr. Kuritzkes creates a low-stress environment. His staff is friendly and very accommodating. He is a wonderful listener, and an excellent diagnostician. Appointments, procedures, and responses are always done in a timely manner. One of the most rewarding doctor/patient experiences I've had.
