I met Dr.Kurtshal at Scripps for general surgery for Breast Surgury. She was a very caring, listen to what you had to say and she would answer and explain very clearly, very professional and because of her personality would cheer you up when you needed it. I miss her and I hope she reads this so she would know I want to say "thank you so much" for being you and best of all a great surgeon.
Couldn't have asked for better care.She was wonderful! I wish every doctor could be like her.She was very patient and kind. I just loved her.
