Dr. Curkovic was amazing during my first visit. After completing my stress test he immediately recommended performing an E-Cardogram and the result was normal. Since I suffer from hypertension he suggested a new medication which immediately brought my blood pressure back to normal. He also educated me on the proper nutritional diet needed to keep my weight and blood pressure normal. Excellent Physician and I highly recommend him. Thanks Doctor!

Excellent cardiologist. Super bust guy with a big patient load but his cardiology skills are excellent and I trust everything he tells me. He always has an APRN following him around for the paperwork and orders but that's ok. He makes the decisions.

I have never had a worst experience with a physician. I went to a hospital with a medical event He was the onsite physician for my possible issue. He was overbearing, talked over me , ignored my explanation of my symptoms. He was directive, telling me what WAS going to happen . I decided not to be exposed to him any longer and checked myself out of the hospital within the hour. I'm sorry I gave him even a one star rating. Currently looking for a new hospital if I have another emergency.

This doctor has been totally disrespectful to my 83 year old mother. He always treats her as if she is a burden to him. He does not go over tests results with her or pays attention to what she has to say and shrugs off any concerns she has. No bedside manner at all.

My PCP was having difficulty finding the right medication for hypertension and immediately Dr. Curkovic knew what the problem was. He took the time necessary. I feel he is very competent.
