I had Thyroid Cancer 14 years ago, I started seeing Dr.Kurra one year ago, she has helped me tremendously. My thyroid levels are being watched so carefully, I was on too high thyroid meds for many years. She is a good listener, takes the time to explain everything , writes things down-and an added bonus, her nurses are great!

I met Dr. Kurra three years ago, when I was in desperate need of clear, concise, and compassionate insight into my medical condition. She immediately provided all of that -- and has continued to be my most trusted medical advisor, through some pretty terrifying years. I trust her with my life, because she saved my life; and now she continues to keep me healthy. I've recommended her to my friends and family because my trust in her is so strong. Thank you, Dr. Kurra, for your flawless care!

Dr. Kurra changed my life. For years doctors had been alarming over 2 tiny thyroid nodules. Dr. Kurra reassured me: levels were fine; thyroid was fine. I just needed a yearly check. Then she gave me vital advice for one with of high risk for diabetes that the others omitted: to improve your health, lose weight. She told me how much to lose and how to do so. Her practical, concrete, direct advice lead me to lose 26 lbs in a year. I'm healthier, active, feel great, and at lower risk for diabetes.

I have been a patient of Dr Kurra since 2013. She gave me my life back. She is a true professional and is extremely knowledgeable in adrenal and thyroid issues. She has terrific bedside manner and is very kind. She always comes up with a plan no matter what. And you leave her office with lab requests and/or other tests that need to be done. I always refer individuals to her whenever needed because she is the best and I mean a TOP physician!

Dr. Kurra was very professional, took her time to discuss my concerns and explained "why" we needed to adjust medications. I had thyroid cancer 13 years ago and was amazed to discuss with her treatment advances and changes in treatment protocols. I trust her knowledge level and I feel confident that she will respond to my questions and concerns.

Dr. Kurra is one of the smartest, most professional, and friendly doctors I have ever met. She takes time to listen and understand my medical history. Her recommendations were well explained and very thoughtful of my needs. Her office was very efficient and clean. Her staff was friendly and helpful. She is the best endocrinologist I have ever seen, I highly recommended her.
in Livingston, NJ |
I would not recommend Dr. Kurra to anyone because she told me thyroid has no effect on metabolism.
