He explained the procedure thoroughly before the colonoscopy even using a wall chart to help me understand exactly what he would be doing. Dr. Kuga and his staff are kind, courteous, and very patient. They realize that having a colonoscopy is probably the last thing that anyone wants to be doing at any given day or time. I highly recommend his practice!"

"Dr. Kuga deserves the 5 star rating, from my experience. I've been under his care for the last 6 months. He has been actively involved since my diagnosis. He's been more involved than my primary care doctor and he made sure I was getting better before I got breaks from visits. He has doctored me back to better health. Feeling better today than well before I started seeing him. Thank you, Dr. Kuga! I came back to edit this because there is another notable member of his team for me. Thank you, Amy Durst! I appreciated your compassion and comforting words when you had to give me my diagnosis. I'm glad it was someone like you"
