Patient Comments (3)
Trumbull, CT |
After my first visit I was impressed. The office is nice and clean, looks like a place one can relax in while waiting for their appointment, soft piano music helped. The couches in her office where very comfortable, and everything was clean and organized. I noticed she doesn’t have a computer in her office but she has many books and took more notes than any doctor I can remember seeing. She was friendly, inquisitive and seemed to genuinely care. I find she was very open to treatment ideas.

I've been seeing Dr Kurien for over nine years and have found her to be extremely intelligent and spot on in her assessments. I trust her judgement implicitly.

I feel like she wants you to come often because she wants the money. It is always her way or the highway.
