Ratings for Dr. Peter Kuechler
My husband had aorta bilateral iliac bypass performed by Dr. Peter Kuechler. During the pre op appointments Dr. Kuechler informed us about Don's condition, explained everything in detail and gave us two options, with one being the best. Dr. Kuechler was very good during pre-op surgery exam, again explaining exactly what was to be done. He phoned right after the surgery to explain what he had done and how Don was doing. Dr. Kuechler was great with his post-op directives and took time to explain about a minor problem. We don't believe his staff/office personnel or office hours/phone answering has anything to do with the doctors surgical abilities or knowledge. We are more than grateful for his skill, patient care and knowledge. We would recommend him to anyone and would see him again, hopefully we won't have to... but grateful for his services.
Dr. Peter Kuechler saved my husbands life in the summer of 2014. He had to get a second team together after a blood clot operation which left my husband with hardly any pulse in his left leg. We were amazed and thankful at his quick response to a nurse's call and his skill. when other's complain about bedside manners, it totally bugs me because a great surgeon is what he is and should be valued for that. Plus we felt he did take time to explain things afterwards and did not just rush about as some do...Sorry this is late in being posted, but I hope it helps others to make up their mind about this excellent surgeon.

I am waiting for some tests to be done at present and then another consult with Dr. Kuechler. He was patient and informative on my first visit. I am hoping I do not have to wait a long time for my second appt as my life is pretty much on hold right now and very stressed out about my medical condition.
Has anyone else tried calling their office? I have been calling for 2 weeks now and only get a busy signal. I have PAD in my right leg for the past year now and my consultation with Dr. Kuuechler is still 1 month away. I am also type 1 (insulin dependent) Diabetic and 2 days ago my big toenail on my leg came off. I keep trying and trying to call the office to ask about that but busy busy busy. Anyone else have this problem?
Great surgeon! Only complaint is that he has no regard for other peoples time. Arrived 15 minutes late for surgery and even when I was his first patient of the day he arrived 40 minutes late for my follow up appointment. He says it how it is which can come across as hurtful especially if you are sensitive. I would recommend this surgeon and would request him if I needed surgery in his area again.
Kind, considerate, had all the time needed to answer our questions. Pending surgery within 1 - 2 years. Not life threatening. We had choices, and he made recommendations. We felt very satisfied with this, our second visit with him. A good man.
