Dr. Kuether and his PA Amanda are phenomenal. As a patient you receive amazing care. They take the time to evaluate you so that they have a full indication of your medical condition. After that you are informed of your options. They work extremely hard to treat each patient with the upmost compassion and care. Every effort is made to accommodate you in providing answers to your condition. They fight hard against insurance companies as well as provide phenomenal surgical relief if so indicated. Basically they are phenomenal. Would never go anywhere else.

No one wants to need to see a neurosurgeon but if you ever need a skilled surgeon and healer, I recommend you choose Dr. Kuether. He is an excellent surgeon. He operated on me AND solved my condition when 2 other surgeons refused to help "due to the complexity". I feel fortunate that he was my surgeons and have only the highest praises for him. God Bless You Dr. Kuether!

I highly recommend Dr Kuether. Dr Kuether and his staff were compassionate and professional. Dr Kuether took a lot of time to explain my condition and how he could help me. The surgery went very well and now I feel great! Thank you Dr. Kuether.

oh my god. The office people are just a horror. Dr. Kuether operated on me and I'm alive, so he's probably a good surgeon. In fact, I thought he was very good. But when I called his office with a question/problem, they were just terrible. Told me what I was calling about couldn't possibly be happening, then told me I'd have to get a referral from a primary care dr. to see Kuether even though he was my surgeon. Huh? Inexcusable way to treat patients.

Dr Kuether was great for urgent serious spinal neurosurgery. His office is used to serious cases, and his technical skills in surgery were much more confident and the results were much better than most other neurosurgeons seem to be.

about 6 months ago i went to Good Samaritan hospital's emergency room with bad headaches and found out I had a brain tumor. Obviously this was very unexpected but everything went well and I went home after three days. It was a very scary situation but I am back to normal!
