Not Interested in Sinus Problems

This is a 'sleep doctor', who focuses on snoring and behavioral conditioning. Wasn't interested in scoping my sinuses or reviewing the MRI results obtained by another MD. I was looking for a less aggressive surgical option and a second opinion. I found the least competent doctor in this field. Apparently she prefers dealing sleep issues and not physical problems. I ended up going to a surgeon who teaches at Albany Medical and has 35 years of surgical experience.

I've just come home after my first consultation re a long-standing sleep and neuro problem, and I am very pleased and impressed. She was thorough, interested, responsive to questions and anecdotal symptom descriptions -- and I FINALLY feel as though I have BWGUN TO GET THIS CONDITION UNDER CONTROL. Looking forward very much to working with her.,

Sheltered, silly, and vain physician

Dr, Kuhar initially presents personable on subsequent visits , however you will find that she possesses a sheltered, vain, and subdued affect with patients. She performed an MSLT test for narcolepsy on me imcompetently and in fact admitted her foolishness. After my diagnosis with severe narcolepsy, she followed up with me once a year. She often incompletely filled out prescription form and when I ( a physician myself) scribbled a substitute signature due to it being late on Friday afternoon and that I would have no sleep medication for 3 days, she expelled me from her practice. Be for warned .
