He ruined my life. May God cause him the same chronic pain he has caused me , so he can feel what I'm going through on a daily basis. They should not allow such doctors to practice medicine in America. This is why health care is a total joke because of doctors like this who get away with doing botched surgeries on patients and are not held accountable for their negligence. I am sad and depressed by all of the pain I'm dealing with everyday.

Dr. Kurtz forever ruined my abdominal wall both functionally and aesthetically and the worst part is that he got away with it and I have to live with pain and suffering because of him. I was told by another top surgeon that he (Dr. Kurtz) did the whole surgery wrong and his approach was very outdated. He made a very damaging vertical incision right in the middle of the abdomen damaging the nerves and the muscles on the left side of the abdomen which is disfigured and indented. Apparently, the incision could have been done smaller and horizontally like a smiley face around the umbilicus. He left me damaged forever. My once appealing abdomen is all messed up because of Dr. Kurtz' lack of skills and lack of up to date technology. He left residual hernia and fat behind which was hurting with every touch or move. I get pinching and needle pains to this day. I can't believe he screwed up such a simple surgery. You have been warned. Too many smart competent doctors out there TRUST me I know because i did my research after failing to do my homework with Kurtz

I don't know what the other reviewer was talking about. I thought Dr. Kurtz was great and so was the staff. Easy to get an appointment, didn't wait in the waiting room long, Dr. Kurtz spoke to me not at me. I was very comfortable with him. He gave me the correct diagnosis (honest). Would absolutely recommend him!!!!
