Gifted Surgeon

Dr. Kuz is gifted among surgeons! He has performed several surgeries on my fingers & hand, and I will choose him again in the future. He is meticulous in every way from preventing infection to careful planning and execution of the surgical process. The stitches were virtually perfect each time, and pain was minimal. He listened attentatively and explained thoroughly, taking as much time as needed to ensure good communication. God blessed me with an amazing doctor who genuinely cares about his patients! I thank the Lord for him!
