Los Angeles, CA |
I was referred to Dr. Kuschner by my primary physician for thumb pain, and saw him for the first time yesterday. Dr. Kuschner is personable and professional. He listened well and explained well. Since my thumb pain had subsided completely before my visit with him, he did not recommend any therapy at this time, and encouraged me to make a return appointment with him if the pain returns.

Dr. Kuschner saw my 9 year old son for a radial fracture he received from a fall skateboarding. He was very thorough and answered all of our questions fully. He also had a good, light-hearted manner with my son. He provided good care.
