Dr. Kurter saved my life. He is an outstanding doctor with experience, knowledge and expertise, unlike any other provider I've seen. When I am there, I have his care and commitment to the utmost, full extent. I pay out of pocket to see Dr. Kurter and wouldn't settle for anything or anyone else. He's helped me find the passion for life, my wellbeing and my happiness. He's the reason I live a meaningful life today. I recommend him for anyone struggling with mental illness as well as addiction.

Dr. Kurter is the best doctor I have been to in my entire life. He is the best at what he does and you can tell he actually cares about his patients and loves doing his job. I highly recommend him to EVERYONE who needs help!!!

Dr. Kurter is a great doctor. He is excellent at understanding how drugs work and assessing benefits vs. risks. He takes a lot of time listening to how he can help you and is very accessible and open to questions. He makes suggestions but ultimately leaves decisions with the patient on best treatment options. He returns calls quickly and really cares about helping his patients.

The first call, I was met with caring, compassion and understanding. The staff and Dr. Kurter are always respectful, courteous and empathetic. The road to recovery, as an addict would know, is full of bumps and bruises along the way, accepting the advise, counseling and medication therapy of Suboxone. If you have an opioid addiction, I highly recommend Dr. Kurter, he truly understands how Suboxone therapy works best for each individual. I don't know where I would be without this help!

Very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. Good with medications. Apparently, he is one of the best docs in Milwaukee, which I didn't know when I started working with him :).
