Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. J. Kuhl is also an administrator so he isn't always available immediately but he is great with MyChart so I don't feel as if I can't get help. I like the idea of the team approach so even if he isn't there I can get help with an emergent problem.

Normally I absolutely love seeing Dr. Kuhl. It always feels like he listens to what I have to say and genuinely wants to help. However this last visit with him left me feeling pretty cruddy. [...] I asked Dr. Kuhl for two things. One was a refill on pain killers which I got (it took me about 2 years to finish the last prescription) but I was felt really guilty and like a drug seeker when obviously [...] I'm not. The other thing I asked for was an MRI which was denied, instead more physical therapy. [...] I don't want to just treat the symptoms I want to find what is wrong. I don't like pain and I don't like pain killers.

Dr. Kuhl is a superb physician. I am always so impressed with his knowledge, his approach to my health needs, questions he asks, and the amount of time he devotes to listening to me. I have referred about 1/2 dozen people to him for treatment - aged 24-95, and when I follow up, they all have been extremely pleased with him, his bedside manner, and sensitivity to their needs, hearing level, cognitive skills and the level of respect he has demonstrated for each.

Dr. Kuhl is phenomenal! Bedside manner and communication skills are unsurpassed ! Medical knowledge seems great and I have referred numerous friends and family to him over the years without reservation.

Dr. Kuhl is not only a superb clinician, but is very astute at meeting needs of the patient and working as the patient advocate. [...] He is beyond excellent in meeting needs for all age groups and complaints, always working towards a resolution that is best for patient, looking at different possibilities for symptoms, but not being overly aggressive in resolving before looking at causes.
