Excellent doctor, helped me a lot. I had injury to my c spine, had severe pain in the neck and arms, could not do anything. In 2013, I had cervical spine fusion, which mad pain even worse. In 2015, Dr. Kushnerik implanted spinal cord stimulator in my cervical spine. Now, I can function. My life completely changed. I can now use my hands, stopped taking pain medications

Long waiting time he's rude only cares on how much he can get from insurance. People of not good elements are waiting for long periods of time for their prescription opiates. That's why he has patients doesn't exam u first time examination then monthly appt for Prescription. Will charge co pay just for prescription all he care is for money. He use to care for patients. Now he only wants patients with private insurance or a PPO insurance that pays a lot of money. Mistreats his medical assistant
