Dr. Kurtzer is an excellent physician. She is gentle and takes her time to do a complete examination. She explains everything clearly and thoroughly. Before seeing Dr. Kurtzer, I had discussed my problem & concerns with two doctors who dismissed it. I was ready to give up & live with the discomfort. Dr. Kurtzer diagnosed the problem and has prescribed a course of treatment that has been very successful.

Some doctors are more difficult to become comfortable with right away but I honestly didn’t have much difficulty at all with Dr.Kurtzer. This was my first visit where I had a main doctor and additional women apart of an examination opposed to just one individual and even still I was pretty comfortable. Comfortability with a doctor is important to me and I’m glad to have this feeling after just one visit.
