I feel if it wasn't for *Dr. Kurup I would not have my eye sight today.


He was very thorough and knowledgable. He listened and took the time to make sure everything was alright.


Every thing is great with *Dr. Kurup and staff.


Very good experience!


Dr. Kurp is an excellent opthalmalogist and he has a great personality also.


Dr. Kurup is an excellent doctor. I am confident in his expertise. I appreciate his care. The visit was a little too fast paced.


Dr. Kurup is a terrific surgeon. Once surgery is over, he is totally uninterested in the patient.


I have already recommended Dr. Kurup to family and friends




Wonderful and very caring all in all a great friendly doctor


Have recommended already.


Dr Kurup said we could call him the next day to get the me of a Te h iCal expert for the problem that I hsve. He gave me the number


Dr. Kurup is kind, concerned and understanding. I particularly like the way that he explains things in a way that is easy to understand.




I trust Dr Kurup with everything. he is awesome.


Dr Kurup healed my eye problem and it was majorly bad at first


Due to his limited time at the hospital and a large number of patients to see, I don't think we get as much time with him as we should. You wait so long to see Dr. Kurup and then when he gets there, he is only in the room for about 5 or maybe 10 minutes. I was at the hospital for 2 hours and he was only with me for about 5 minutes on this visit. There is a lot of waiting time.




Never had a bad experience. Always positive!


I have had a lot of work done to this left eye of mine and I still have a few problems now and then. Dr. Kurup and his staff willingly continue to work through the kinks in this eye. I am grateful they care so much.




My appointment was at 3:30pm. I was seen at 4:50pm. The physician seemed in quite a hurry, saw an area in my eye which he wanted photographed and wisk me around to photography (because they closed at 5:00pm) where I was left to wait on the photographer. He returned very briefly asked if I had questions but was obviously in a hurry. I was told not to be concerned about the photographed area in my eye but do not have a clear understanding ot what this represents. At my previous office visit a year ago I received extremely good care, all my questions were answered and I felt I was given adequare time.


no problem what so ever


The doctor was too rushed & needed to explain more about medications & what to expect with treatments.


Dr. Kurup has always shown himself very knowledgable, professional, and caring. I have full confidence in his treatment of my medical issues.


Dr. Kurup is excellent and very caring. His staff is very good and caring.


He's the best around. Knows his stuff and explains everything with great care. I feel he can't be beat! Spends just right amount of time with me. I'm very lucky to have him for my provider. I brag about Dr. Kurup to friends and family.


Show he cares/answers any questions.


*Dr. Kurup is an "excellent doctor."


Eye center is by far the best medical center I have ever visited.


very good -will recommend


Always excellent from doctors.


Very satisfied with my care. No bad experiences.




Excellent doctor


The doctor was very good at explaining things to me and answering any questions that I had.


I wasn't clear on a few things--seemed to conflict previous information--I plan to pursue at my next visit in 5 weeks. Dr. Kurup is a wonderful doctor--I don't think I would trust my eye care to anyone else.


Having my eye care monitored and regularly checked is greatly a positive for my well being.


Dr. Kurup is one of the finest provider's I have had the pleasure of meeting! I have upmost confidence in him!
