Dr. Kutnik and his staff went above and beyond to make me feel cared for. The staff was always pleasant and Dr. Kutnik actually took the time to sit and listen and was all around very kind. I would highly recommend him! I am feeling great after surgery and couldn't have asked for better results.

If you are looking to be insulted and enjoy a doctor with no bed-side manner, then Shawn Kutnik will make you feel right at home... A second opinion will show you just how little this "expert" knows about practicing medicine... Don't waste your time.

I have only seen him once, so far. He is a workers comp doctor for my employer. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. He was very nice, prompt. He is doing surgery soon on my hands, so I will update my comment then.

Was able to get me in same day for an emergent issue. Very personable, highly recommended!

I would not see this dr again due to the billing within his office and group and the lack of care to call me back promptly when I called for months with a discrepancy! I ended up seeing a different dr because it was unknown if he took my insurance, the staff assured me if I paid my copay I would not be responsible for other bills. Now a collection agency has my information looking for money I was told I would not have to pay.

Dr. Kutnik was very gentle and kind to my daughter. The staff took us back to the office soon after arriving and Dr. Kutnik saw us quickly. He answered all of my daughter's questions and never made us feel rushed. I completely recommend him!
in Arnold, MO |
I recently injured my elbow pretty badly and was refferred to Dr. Kutnik. I was pretty upset going in bt he was so freindly and took quite a bit of time to explain everything. I ended up having surgery but am feeling so much better. His staff was helpful and easy to reach and Dr Kutnik was great.

When Dt Kutnik was at his former office, I saw him SEVERAL times. I was sent to get a custom brace for my thumb. What I came away with, was a flexible bandage that I could have purchased at my local pharmacy. I was no better after all the visits with him.

I have never had any problems with him been seeing him for two years hes always been friendly. His office staff has always been very nice.My elbow has greatly improved with his care Thank you!
in Valley Park, MO |
The staff is extremely rude and Dr. Kutnik spends an extremely small amount of time explaining everything to the patient. In addition he was over 45min late.
