Amazing and talented spine surgeon. After four previous spine surgeries (with other surgeons) and continued problems Dr. Kuklo did what is likely a final surgery. Almost a year later I am doing very well. At 78, I have a full life with regular travel. I highly recommend Dr. Kuklo.
Our practice aims to deliver the highest quality patient care. We love to hear about these positive experiences. Thanks for sharing this feedback with us!

I had spinal surgery 7 years ago, my third..the other 2 were with other drs. I ended up with 6 fusions and the surgery was very successful. One would never know I had a bad back! Dr Kuklo was excellent as was his PA, Katy. I am very grateful! I do water aerobics and swim 6 days a week. I am one of the lucky ones!
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

We met Dr. Kuklo in August of 2014. He took one look at my husbandschool MRI and without a doubt knew there was no other way but to fuse my husbands back. All the other docs, wanted to just throw medication at my husband and move him a long. When it came time for surgery, I have never worked with a doctor so sincere. He made sure not only my husband was in good hands but made sure I had everything I needed. I highly recommend Dr. Kuklo! Thank you Doc!

Excellent physician. At 42, he is the first doctor who seems to truly care about my condition. He is also the first MD who has ever called to see how I am doing. Highly Recommended

Very happy with Dr. Timothy Kuklo. He was kind, explain everything in detail and in terms that I could understand. He presented himself very professional with a lot of knowledge. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kuklo to a family member or friend. I feel that he cares very much for his patients and takes extra steps to see to their healing.

Awesome experience (which is really something if you are having back pain so bad you are seeing a surgeon). Great, great, doctor - can't say enough good things about him.

I came to Dr. Kuklo's office by recommendation from my primary care physician. I was suffering from severe pain in my cervical spine and numbness in my hands and forearm's. Long story short, after my cervical spinal fusion surgery I immediately felt relief of my symptoms. It has been a year since my surgery and I have to say my surgery was literally life changing. I have very little to no pain and my symptoms are improving every day. I cannot possibly thank this amazing team enough. Awesome!

I am a new patient and was in their office for two hours... I spoke with Kandice and out of the blue, she suggested a treatment and asked me to wait, she came back with Dr. Kuklo who was just getting ready to leave, but he turned back to come in to see me! I treated me and spoke to me kindly and so did Kandice. I do hope this treatment works and I am appreciative for both of them working with me to help me feel better.

He is a very likeable person and tells you what to expect with your recovery and how to take deal with the pain. He explains things very well so you understand in layman terms. I tell my friends and family if they need to take care of back problems see DR. KUKLO!! He is wonderful and so is his assistant KATY!!

Has done 4 different surgeries on me since 2000, two on my neck and two lumbar. The guy is a magician.
