I'v been going to Dr. K for many years and find his expertise and bedside manner to be excellent. He operated on my prostate 6 yrs ago using cryo surgery and the results have been excellent.

He and his team are first rate. I had an emergency causing great discomfort and from the time I arrived, the receptionist expedited my office registration experience and the assistants helped relieved my pain promptly. What a relief! I feel that I am in good hands with well seasoned professionals whenever I visit. And Dr. Kurnot has prescribed meds that have greatly controlled my problem.

Eight years ago Dr. Kurnot removed my cancerous prostate. His care has been EXCELLENT. He is VERY knowledgeable and was always thorough. He was also compassionate and remembered my case. He always asks about my family and is always very helpful.

He rescheduled me two times for his convenience when I really needed to see him. Finally, I was able to accept an imposed schedule. The time was not a convenient for me so I get to my appointment 15 minutes late. As a result, the doctor refuses to see me forgetting that he missed two previous appointments. Bottom line: his time is valuable but the patient''s time worthless.
