  Overall Patient Rating - January 2021
Dr. Curtis was one of the most thorough, patient, doctors I've ever received care from. He is an incredible listener and wanted to know everything relevant to providing the best treatment. He spoke in terms I could understood, and came up with a plan that I agreed with, based on a very long and in depth evaluation. He is an incredible man, and a tremendous physician, and I would trust my life with him.

  Overall Patient Rating - November 2020
Dr Curtis was by far the most thorough specialist I have visited in a long time. He listened to my concerns, he explained everything he was doing, he was attentive and caring about the problems I face. He did not "protect" other doctors the way most do, but rather his first concern was me. That was refreshing. Most of the time doctors tend to explain things away "what your doctor probably meant..." even when they weren't there. Dr Curtis was respectful of my pcp, but gave us truthful knowledge, and didn't sugar coat things. It was wonderful to speak to a doctor obviously knowledgeable about his practice, and not afraid to do what's right, over what is easy. He spent a long time examining me, questioning my history and background and listening to everything I had to say. I was very impressed with his bedside manner and grateful for his extensive knowledge and willingness to spend time with me.
