The Dr was great,knowledgeable with a great bedside manner. The staff was childish and loud.
Excellent people. Everyone is extremely professional while making you comfortable
Visit was pretty "matter-of-fact.
I completed all the medical questionnaires on the Zocdoc site prior to my appt, and my primary care doctor's office said they sent all records pertinent to this visit and diagnosis. After waiting one hour, I asked how long it would be before I was seen. I was then given medical history forms to complete, and told lack of that info was part of the delay. I told staff about online history and I was told to fill out paperwork anyway, which I did. After 30 minutes I was taken to an exam room, EKG and vital signs taken, and when I told staff I was referred due an to abnormal test, they wanted the report. My primary doctor's office did not send the report. Dr. Kuri's staff called office to get report, but did not give it to him until after I was seen. I was there over 2 hours, and was very frustrated that there was not more effort made to obtain records by Dr. Kuri's staff. If I was not a medical professional and able to tell the doctor myself why I was there, the visit and wait time would have been a waste.
Dr. Kuri listens to you and makes direct eye contact. Very professional and very knowledgeable. Office staff was very courteous and helpful.
Dr Kuri is fantastic. Dr Kuri has been my husband's cardiologist for over 12 yrs. The office staff is great
I will have test later and evaluate
Doctor always seems to be in a rush. Also if he speaks Spanish then he should do so consistently with the Spanish speaking patients.
It was on time no wait and what a great doctor. He took his time and I felt like I really had good experience.
I did not have to wait long at all to see the doctor once I arrived. The office staff and nurses were very friendly and professional. As for Dr Kuri, he was also very friendly and professional. He was very attentive to my needs since I needed a pre-surgery screening and noted that I wanted to get approval as soon as possible. Prior to me leaving he ensured that I had a signed letter from him giving me clearance. I believe that was extraordinary; especially since I didn't have to wait weeks for a similar request. I highly recommend him and his staff!
He knows me and that makes me comfortable that I am getting the right treatment.
