"Dr. Kuga deserves the 5 star rating, from my experience. I've been under his care for the last 6 months. He has been actively involved since my diagnosis. He's been more involved than my primary care doctor and he made sure I was getting better before I got breaks from visits. He has doctored me back to better health. Feeling better today than well before I started seeing him. Thank you, Dr. Kuga! I came back to edit this because there is another notable member of his team for me. Thank you, Amy Durst! I appreciated your compassion and comforting words when you had to give me my diagnosis. I'm glad it was someone like you"

"Dr. Kuga was very professional. He introduced himself to me prior to the procedure; explained the process and answered my questions. There were a lot of people there and I did not feel like I was being rushed. He also spoke to me afterward to explain the results and made sure my questions were answered. When I have to do this again, I plan to request him."

"This was my first visit with this doctor. I took my husband with me as I have trouble understanding people with an accent. As it turned out I didn't need to do that as I could understand him just fine. He was very pleasant and looked me in the eye, not at a computer. He didn't rush in and out like so many doctors do. My experience with Dr. Kuga was very good."

"I was anxious about my first colonoscopy, but Dr. Kuga and his staff placed me totally at ease. The procedure went exactly as Dr. Kuga said it would. He explained the procedure thoroughly before the colonoscopy even using a wall chart to help me understand exactly what he would be doing. Dr. Kuga and his staff are kind, courteous, and very patient. They realize that having a colonoscopy is probably the last thing that anyone wants to be doing at any given day or time. I highly recommend his practice!"

"Great Doctor friendly and caring with an OK staff However the doctor told his assistant to have a blood test while I was there and that didn't happen, I'm supposed to get ultrasound every 6 months it's been 7 and I haven't heard from them so I guess I'll have to call and set it up so staff needs to work on being a little more competent ."
