Knee discomfort
Both Dr. Kurtz and his PA Katie provided me with the information that I needed to pursue resolution of my knee issues. I have known for a long time that eventually I will need total knee replacement and hesitated to pursue. Dr. Kurtz was very professional in his approach and detailed what I would need to do to have this done in the future.

Outstanding Medical Care
Dr. Kurtz and his staff provided me with excellent medical care prior to, during, and after my hip surgery. I felt that they truly cared about my well being and did everything possible to make me feel comfortable with this procedure, while ensuring a safe and successful surgery and recovery. My experience while at St. Thomas Midtown Hospital (Nashville) was wonderful for myself (and my husband) and Dr. Kurtz and his staff checked with me every day after surgery for almost a month. When I had concerns or questions they responded promptly and Dr. Kurtz even did so on Easter weekend! In addition, at my one month checkup, Dr. Kurtz was very thorough and patient with me, answering the numerous questions I had. TOA and Dr. Kurtz met every high expectation that I could have had and I feel blessed to have had such a wonderful and professional surgeon, staff, and hospital for my surgery.

The visit was short. Dr. Kurtz read my X-rays, came into the examination room and fully explained what he did and did not see. I felt very respected during our interaction.

I didn’t have to wait long to see Dr. Kurtz. He gave me a copy of my X-ray and told me it looked great. He asked me questions about my pain level, flexibility and strength. I am so impressed with Dr. Kurtz and have recommended him to several friends.

Excellent Doctor
Dr. Kurtz is very straightforward and explains things in layman’s terms. His office running with precise efficiency. The fact they don’t run late and keep patients waiting indefinitely is very much appreciated. In addition, Dr. Kurtz is available after the appointment should you have questions or need further assistance.

Transferred from another practice - great move
Dr. K was wonderful. Enjoyed our first appt together. Very thorough, patient, kind. Here’s some general observations/suggestions about the office ( One C1ty location): - I work nearby and wanted to walk there. I called morning of my appt and asked to speak with someone in that specific clinic so I could truly confirm which side of the building to come in on B and they wouldn’t transfer me and let me speak with someone there. The woman (in another clinic) kept telling me to “just go in the main door.” Very frustrating. It was freezing and I wound up walking 3/4 around the bldg seeking the “main entrance.” - very pleasant check in process and they have the new patient forms you fill out ahead of time down to a science. They do need to dust the light fixtures over check in and take off the Christmas bows. - wait time in waiting room: 10 minutes. Wait time in exam room: ~20 minutes. -In the bathroom, paper towels are too far from sink. Creates wet, drippy floor.
