My experience with Dr. Kurpad was way above my expectations. This is a caring, conscientious, and very thorough man, who has one of the best personalities and bedside manor I have come across. The team he has assembled all seem to have the same outlook on the surgery, healing process. All in all I would rate him a 5 out of 5 any day.
