Very Good Experience
Patient | April 2, 2018

I WAITED THREE HOURS FOR DR. K TO SEE ME. I GO ONCE A YEAR, AND IT'S ALWAYS A 2 1/2 to 4 HOUR WAIT. THAT IS THE REASON I WILL NOT RECOMMEND HER.
Patient | March 1, 2018

Dr. Kuchtey is wonderful.
Patient | February 27, 2018

the best Doctor
Patient | February 26, 2018

My wife's eyes were far worse after the doctor performed cataract surgery.
Patient | February 26, 2018

Dr. Kuchtey is always worth waiting for.
Patient | February 24, 2018

This was a post op exam.
Patient | January 29, 2018

I just don't think the doctor really cared about my eye problems. I told her my right eye was having some issues and there was some sores at the end of my eye and in the corner of my eye on the top lid. She didn't say or do anything about my problem. My right eye still has those sores!
Patient | December 12, 2017

Good.
Patient | December 8, 2017

Experience always good & thorough.
Patient | November 20, 2017

Dr. Kuchtey has always been very up front with my eye conditions and always been so good about the situation to take care of it.

Dr. Kuchtey is a superb physician. I'll continue to see her despite the long waits.
Patient | August 19, 2017

As I said earlier, Always room for improvement ,A new test was ordered that I knew nothing about. Would like to know ahead of time although it was beneficial to me.

One of the most comprehensive exam I have experienced in my life - great physician Dr. Kuchtey.

DR Kuchtney suggested I go to the low vision clinic and they scheduled the appt for me. They are great!
Patient | July 24, 2017

Good - very good person.
Patient | July 20, 2017

A lot going on and moves swiftly once in with doctor. Eyes are checked well, however.
Patient | July 18, 2017

I would hesitate to recommend based on the wait times, their time is valuable too.
Patient | July 17, 2017

It would be helpful for the schedulers to tell patients to expect to be at the clinic for up to 4 hours, because that's how long it took & I had a child I needed to pick up in 3 hours.
Patient | July 6, 2017

great!
Patient | July 4, 2017

Dr Rachel K is so careful and excellent she is beyond good. #10. Up up up.
Patient | May 18, 2017

Dr. Kutchey is absolutely the best in my experience. I would wait all day to see her if necessary.
Patient | May 15, 2017

Dr. Kutchey is a good and competent doctor. The wait of over 2.5 hours at EVERY visit is not acceptable.
