Ratings for Dr. Christine A. Kuhn
I have been going to Dr. Kuhn for months now for severe acne. I visit on a monthly basis because I am on Accutane. The nurses are very helpful in answering questions and concerns. Dr. Kuhn has never been anything but kind to me and she answers all of my questions. She tells me that I am improving and I had to make a dosage change so that it would be cheaper, and she was more than happy to oblige. I have recommended her to friends because she is great. I'm not sure about other procedures, but if you have problems with acne, she is the doctor for you. Wonderful staff and I always leave feeling great. Would definitely recommend!
The office staff and nurses were very friendly, but I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone specifically because of Dr. Kuhn. I was given little instructions, felt disrespected, and was shown very little compassion. I was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma (a cancer), and was forced to wait a month to get it removed. A week after she removed the mole I was told she didn’t get it all, which is inexcusable for such a simple procedure (it isn’t open heart surgery). Unfortunately I wasn’t made aware they do not do the Moh’s procedure here, where they check the mole under a microscope to make sure they get it all. Due to this mishap I was forced to use Aldara, a cream that helps your body kill cancer cells. As you can imagine a topical cream that kills cancer is very harsh, and any healing my body had done after the surgery was quickly reversed as it left a literal hole in my back. I blame this mostly on the fact that Dr. Kuhn gave me the wrong dosage and no directions for Aldara. Even though each packet of Aldara says it is one dose, for my situation each dose should be 1/3 of a packet and not the full thing. Also multiple websites explicitly state (often in bolded text) that Aldara shouldn’t be left on for more than 8 hours. So at the beginning, I left a full packet of Aldara on my wound for nearly 24 hours at a time. It took ME making a phone call to the office and some online research to get this straight, when I should have been told this originally. When I brought all of this up to Dr. Kuhn and how frustrated I was with the entire process, she seemed to care very little. She never apologized for her mistakes, and actually seemed upset with me. As she cleaned out my wound, which looked infected at this point, the nurse asked if I was in pain from the alcohol and scrubbing she was doing on the area. When I said yes, she didn’t say a word and actually scrubbed harder as she poured more alcohol in the wound. She then left the room in silence, even though I had many more questions. I made the nurse go back and have her explain where the remaining cancer cells were. Dr. Kuhn never came back out to see me, and just gave a drawing to the nurse to show me. A month later after the surgery, and just now I was finding out where she missed the cancer cells which is where I should have been putting the Aldara cream. I felt very disrespected by Dr. Kuhn and that I wasn’t given the proper time of day. To Dr. Kuhn, it seems like I was nothing more than a chart on a clipboard and that my complaints were completely invalid and a nuisance to her. She seemed to only care about getting me in and out as quickly as possible, and that I paid on the way out.
Do NOT go here! This place has the worst patient service I have ever received! The office staff expects you to pay in full on the day of service before you even receive an EOB back from you insurance. I have been concerned in the past about the amount of time that the doctor here actually spends with you while you are in her office, and have sometimes left with the feeling that I was rushed and did not get a chance to ask her all of my questions. I let it go at the time, but regret doing so now. It is clear that this office and doctor only care about the financial gain of their practice rather than being concerned about the actual health of their patients. I understand that a doctor's office is a business, but where is the patient service component? Not here...
If it weren't for Dr. Kuhn, my husband would have Melanoma Cancer all throughout his body. She recognized it RIGHT AWAY and took immediate action by taking a sample, of course, sending us to a Top Notch Surgeon and making an appointment with a Top Notch Oncologist. Thank you so much, Dr. Kuhn. You are our HERO!!!!!!!
waited to six week to see this "Dr". spent an additional hour in the waiting room for them to verify insurance, then another 20 minuted in the exam room to spend 7 minutes (timed) with this piss poor provider. Most frustrating office visit of my life, seems to have little or no interest in the patients problem, or resolving it. Please do yourself a favor and find a better dermatologist.
Worst doctor-wrong treatment, 9x cost of family doctor who gave the right treatment, doctor never returned calls, nor office manager, did not care about length of time to see, give prescriptions, most complaints on internet. Threatens collections without responding to patient even if treatment was delayed or inaccurate. Waited 4 weeks for treatment of serious skin condition, most expensive prescription that did not work, never responded to calls to dispute. On July 1, 2010, recording says closed for summer vacation until July 12, no prescriptions available during this time, no referral number given. Told me I had untreatable disease as if no cure, when first line treatment options on the internet worked. Filing complaint with medical board as this woman has no business practicing with her high fees, inability to look you in the eye, and lack of knowledge.
I have seen Dr. Kuhn two times and both times she was very anxious to remove something. I am not a high risk for skin cancer so I questioned her decision the second time especially since it involved my face. I felt I had a clogged pore but she was convinced it was a follicular tumor or cancer. She made it sound as though removal was the only option. I took no action and went home. Several days later, my pore finally opened up on it's own and I never returned to Dr. Kuhn. While vigilance regarding skin cancer is appreciated my family and I all feel that her office might be very profit driven. At the very least, you should be prepared to suggest alternative solutions and perhaps seek a second opinion.
