This doctor seems very knowledgeable, but I waited 2 hours to see him for 10 minutes! then was told I have to call back and make an appointment for another test because the audiologist went home. If I was seen on time I could have done it all in one day. Also, if I hadn't badgered him with questions I don't think I would have understood what he was talking about. All in the meantime, I'm concerned I may have permanent hearing damage.

I felt a bit rushed by Dr. Kushnick. I have had an on going problem and I have seen several doctors and he wasn't able to talk to him about my concerns without him cutting me off. The other issue i had was he was very heavy handed with me when he was examining my ears and nose. He used a numbing spray but it was still really intense. All in all i probably would not recommend Dr. Kushnick. His bedside manner was fair, but the wait was 1hr+ and then i didn't feel like he really listened to me.

It was good. The doctor listened to me and did a through exam before recommending treatment. He explained his findings and answered my questions. He was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and inspired trust.

After I waited for over an hour, Dr Kushnick finally saw me but the appointment was extremely rushed and he finished the appointment in less than five minutes. I had to get ear wax removed as per my audiologist, but he disregarded that, said I was fine, and rushed me out the door.

The hospital looked like something out of a horror movie. The waiting room was even worse. The rude woman at the front desk had the same answer to every question that I asked: "I don't know" (but picture it being said in a nasty tone of voice). My appointment was at 4pm and I didn't get seen until 5:15pm. Why do they even take appointments? They should just say "come in and put your name at the bottom of a long list of people and wait in a dirty sweaty waiting room and maybe you'll get seen". The doctor: He did have a very nice demeanor, but I was disappointed with the treatment I received. He looked inside my ear and said it looked "perfect" after I explained to him that I've had on and off infections and swelling for months. After I insisted that there was definitely something wrong with my ear, he told me to take decongestants. I'm not a doctor, but I had a feeling that they might interfere with another medication I was taking (this medication was clearly listed on the chart I filled out). Low and behold, I found out through the internet and through other doctors, that decongestants do in fact interfere with my medication. It's a good thing I did my own research and asked for a second opinion or I may have been at risk for a heart attack or seizure. Thanks, doc.

Dr. Kushnick was helpful and has good bedside manner, but I was left to wait more than two hours because they were backlogged from having had an emergency earlier in the day. No one at front desk communicated that with me and I had to keep asking when my turn would be, without receiving an answer.

Disappointed ZocDoc information was not sent to doctor. Had to fill out paper work. They were not aware of my appointment which is why my wait time was over an hour.

Dr. Kushnick was great - nice bedside manner, cordial, and I felt confident in his care. My issue was minor (clogged ear and ear infection) so there wasn't much to it - he cleaned out the ear and gave me an antibiotic - but it was all in all a pleasant experience and I would recommend him. I saw lots of complaints about office wait time, so I took my laptop and worked on the free wifi while I waited...I was about 15 minutes early for my appointment and was seen approximately 40 minutes after I arrived. Not great, but not awful. Once I saw him I was in and out in 10 minutes.

I've had sinus issues throughout my life and this was my first time seeing an ENT outside the physician group I grew up as a patient in. Dr. Kuchnick was easy to talk to, sure to review my medical history in detail, and able to diagnose my problem through a thorough exam. I felt comfortable in his care, and trust his expertise. Additionally, the hearing exam technician was lovely also made my feel comfortable throughout. Though his office and the building at TBHC is older and a little worn down, the care was top notch. I would just remind future patients to withhold judgement while waiting, the staff clearly know what they're doing.

Waited for two hours to get a minute of his attention. Also he send me to other clinic, for which he didn't give me referral. He said I don't need it. But when I went to the clinic I actually need it. Than I called office. They were constantly putting me on hold. They promised to fax referral. I was waiting for two hours and didn't get anything. So I waisted day of my life waiting.

Horrible! Don't do this to yourself! They schedule way more people than they can take. The minimum wait time is 2 hours and when you ask the receptionist about the amount of time you need to wait, she just tells you to reschedule if you can't wait. The doctor is super nice and efficient but he is not worth the wait. I WILL NEVER RETURN again.

I went to Dr. Kushnick's office with my toddler son and I felt like the wait was forever then again my son wasn't on his best behavior (it was naptime) otherwise everyone was very professional and it was our initial consultation so we had paperwork to fill out so that may have contributed to the wait. I was very satisfied and glad that I went and plan to go back only as needed. Thank you Zocdoc for helping me find this physician

I thought Dr. Kushnick very capable and confident. He had good bedside manner and dealt with my issue quickly and to my satisfaction. However, I have been billed for a co-pay already paid in the office and that is detracting from my experience. If a resolution is reached quickly and to my satisfaction, then I will revise my review. However, medical bills are a major problem/issue related to quality of health care and this should not happen.
