I couldn't believe Dr.Kushner actually greeted me himself. He spent over an hour with me, which was very touching.

Albeit that Dr. Kushner is knowledgeable in his field, his demeanor and delivery is very curt to almost abrupt. It was obvious Dr. Kushner was interested in getting through the pre appointment questionnaire that I completed prior to my appointment. And it was made very clear he only wanted one word (Yes or No)answers or very direct abbreviated answers to his questions.

Weight management is an emotional subject. Dr Kushner has perfected his bedside manner in that he respects what I'm going through but still gives it to me straight. He's great and I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

I wish Dr. Kushner could be my PCP. He reviews my chart before I see him, cares about what's going on with me, and spends a long time listening to what may be missing from my medical record. He is the best Doctor at NMH hands down. Genuinely a fantastic doctor who just wants to help patients even if it's an unrelated issue. Dr. Kushner goes above and beyond what any other doctor I've had has done.
