in wolverine ,mi |
a terrible experience she didn't listen to anything I said only wanted to lecture me on my lifestyle which she did for about 10 minutes then prescribe me medications which one of them shouldn't have been prescribed to me at all.Now why would prescribe a medication to a person suffering from depression a medication that causes this ?that's what she did with me after reading reviews on her will be changing doctors
in Petoskey |
Terrible bedside manner, does not listen to you. Makes you feel it's "all in your head". Does not acknowledge the invisible aspects of neurological disease and the huge affect they have on your life. Pretentious and demeaning. She belittled all of my concerns that she could not see, measure, or quantify. Your just grey matter on a stick. One star too many.
in Petoskey, MI |
This physician has the worst bedside manners of any doctor I have ever seen. She doesn't listen, jumps to conclusions, was horribly offensive during the first session, assuring there would be no repeat visit. She should have picked another profession as people are not a skill set she manages well.
Columbus, OH |
She tends to change medications on her patients. She doesn't listen to them and blames them when she cancels tests.
in Kincheloe, MI |
Dr. Kurshuk was very through in her exam and review of records I brought as a new patient. She explained both pros and cons of various treatments and procedures assuring I had complete understanding.
in Pickford, MI |
She was very good with checking everything for my husband
