Dr Kulkarni is a wonderful doctor. He listens to what I have to say and then helps by giving me the appropriate treatment. I would not want any other doctor.

in FORT WAYNE IN |

I have a lot of painful issues going on and I had to have an EMG done, Dr. Kulkarni was very kind and did his best to do the test as quickly as possible. After it was completed he explained the results to me.

I have been seeing Dr. Kulkarni almost a year, he refuses to explain treatment options, comes in to refill prescriptions and then to leave, even when I am there to discuss MRI results that he ordered and plans of action. He hadn't even looked at my results, I know this because I had to give him MY copy in order to even find out about them. Thank God I have all of my results emailed to me. He's a power hungry drug pusher, if asked to explain or recommend something that is NOT drugs, he walks out
in Sacramento, CA |
I had a nerve block and ablation done after sustaining a neck injury in college. Thanks to Dr Kulkarni I was able to play basketball again less than a year later after almost 2 years or suffering. That was the best decision I ever made and I thank him and Dr Jenkinson for seeing me through it all. I think about them often and bless them both!
in Ft Wayne, IN |
Dr. Kulkarni and Tasha Bowers his assistant are great. I am 33 and have had 2 seperate cervical fusions, and suffer from chronic pain. Dr. Kulkarni has given me 3 nerve blocks and medication. I would like other alternatives than pain meds but nothing else can help me. He listens to me and cares about my wellbeing. I would love to have a brand new neck, but that isn't an option, unfortunately. If it wasn't for him and Tasha I don't know what I would do.
