Verified Patient Reviews
He was very knowledgeable about what could be causing my pain. The wait was excruciatingly long, but everyone else in the waiting room said he was worth it, and they were right.
Dr Kushnerik is very attentive and knowledgeable, his staff of physical therapist's are all amazing, helpful and very kind full of great advice and options for different ways to deal with an assortment of aliments.
He's the most understanding doctor that truly care for his patients. I've been through a lot of pain from being an athlete and have gotten many opinions from other pm doctors, and he's by far the best one!
The wait in the office was way too long . He must be fantastic for so many people to be willing to wait. The office appeared to be clean, staff friendly. It's just so busy there
Far too many patients scheduling all wrong.
he was very caring, informative and willing to help
I am very satisfied with the doctor and his stuff. However, I had to have an argument that I had filled forms online and do no have to fill them again.
Highly recc tough doctor,Does whats best for clients,great staff family feeling when treating.
Tania, the receptionist had a horrible disposition. She told me that there was an hour wait. When I complained, Tania asked if I have never waited in a doctor's office. Tania makes Dr. Kushnerik look unprofessional. It was over 2 hours past my appointment time.
Dr. Kushnerik is more than an excellent Pain Management Specialist. He is a professional who is caring, attentive, informative & will never make you feel rushed when meeting with him. He is determined to take the journey to total wellness with you. He is a specialist who makes time to see as many patients as possible. Despite the overload, his staff (specifically Tanya, Office Manager & Yesenia, Clinical Assistant) are well-qualified, very friendly, courteous, professional & top-rate. They share the spirit of caring exemplified by Dr. Kushnerik. Highly recommended.
dr. kushneric is fantastic and is highly gentle with his approach to pain. he is soo good that his patient load is massive, which is one reason that his ability to see patients leads to a long office wait, but it is well worth the visit.
positive - listened and advised with true interest
The advice that Dr. Kushnerik gave was fine. I found it a little off putting that he did not make eye contact until he examined me and was instead asking me a series of questions while looking only at his computer screen.
Once I was seen, Dr. Kushnerik was great. Very helpful and friendly. However, I did have to wait over an hour, and the receptionist told me that wait time was common.
He was very understanding and kind
Very concerned, skilled and peofession Dr. The wait time is not a reflection of him. He's in high demand. That's usually what happens when you're a great Dr.
Very knowledgeable. I felt as if he had known me for years. Very clear on methods of treatment for my specific ailment. Hope to be pain-free soon.
Excellent doctor, super smart, and rational in his approach toward treatment, meaning he did not try to push unnecessary tests or procedures.
I had seen this doctor a while ago regarding some pains. He had sent me to get an MRI and after evaluation suggested surgery. I would have preferred a doctor who would have presented all possible options before suggesting surgery.
