What People Say About Dr. Stuart Kuschner, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I found both the office, staff and especially Dr. Kuschner to be friendly, professional and genuine in their caring. Dr. Kuschner was very honest in letting me know that previous surgeries done elsewhere over 18 yrs. ago would not allow for another thumb joint surgery without a lengthy recovery. As my hand(s) are used for both my career and daily recreational activities I may just have to learn to live with the pain. However prescribing a night splint may turn out to relieve the morning pain. Honesty from a doctor allows the patient to make their own decisions. Really like this doctor.

Asking questions is my nature and training. It often results in aggression, anger, and defensiveness by the egotist or is insecure doctor. Those types don’t have answers to my questions about the treatment plan and my healthcare. Dr. Kuschner is the real deal. Excellent professional, Friendly, wonderful personality, intelligent, no pretense.. “Doc Kusch” úses appropriate use of images necessary to make a complete medical analysis. Reasonable prices. I recommend Dr Kuschner as terrific. A.

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.
