This Dr. is very respectful of time. I've never waited past my appt time. I had lumbar spinal fusion L2-L5 Dec 7 2016 He has a fantastic staff of caring individuals. I was referred to him and will confidently refer him to others.
He's one of the best doctors I have ever been to. I had my surgery 14 years ago & he still remembered me!
Dr.Kushwaha is absolutely the best! I have been a patient of his practice for over 10 years.
I wasn't there 10-15 minutes and they called me in. Great service thanks Dr Kushwaha and Staff.
He gets right to the point!
Dr. Kushwaha gave me back surgery 6 years ago. I highly recommend him. Most of the friends I have in Katy have used him for their back problems. He is a very gifted surgeon.
Awful! !! Medical assistant provided prescribed medication which required injections with no explanation indicating it was self explanatory. .. I was provided a pamphlet in Spanish and told they didn't have English, unfortunately I don't speak or read Spanish. ... I was told by another employee i could leave prior to completion of dr recommended treatment,. Awful
On Dec 7,2016 I had a lumbar spinal fusion L2-5 this dr provides excellent guidance and skills. He's a no nonsense strictly business attitude and demeanor which I appreciate considering the seriousness of his profession. I would recommend him without exceptions. He did his part the rest is up to God and i
He is a very intelligent man and has the great insight at listening. So many professional assume they know more than you it becomes a debate. .I am very happy and know that I'm not being given a lot of subterfuge to ameliorate my pain.Pain is subjective so when one is having it, no amount of deep breathing or psychic journeys are going to alleviate it.
He was very attentive to my needs
I found him very professional and listened with patience. He didn't try to use a lot of subterfuge to confuse you.I have every intention of going back. Finding a Un-egotistical medical doctor an anomaly.
He just wasn't like my Dr that referred him to me. He seemed very cold wasn't very interested in my care. I felt he was only talking to me because Dr Jones referred me to him his associate was mjust as cold as he was wouldn't look at me when talking to me then when Dr Kushwaha came in he talk to me for 10-15 minutes all he said looks like you need surgery and i said no i want the injection first and he said ok and ou the office he was gone. Not friendly at ALL!!!!!!! I didn't like that at all. My Dr's talk to me like they care about my health not about if you don't want surgery then ok bye.
The doctors office was very fast, efficient, and met all of my needs. No complaints at all.
Although he is a reputable surgeon i could have done without his condescending attitude. Once in the exam room expect a 10-20 minute wait for him to come in. If you can look past that then he's recommendable.
He is wonderful! Very professional and caring. Answers all questions so you can understand everything. I've been under his care for over a year. Great surgeon. I am walking today because of his skills.
