My only complaint is the time spent waiting on my doctor, I think that she is a great Physician, I feel as though her patient load is to heavy.. She is always very apologetic .

Patient | July 17, 2018

My appointment was made a year in advance for the eye clinic .The time was at 8:45 when I left it was 11:30 the doctor spent all of maybe 3 minutes with me. She was very nice but I felt rushed as she seemed to also. I missed an appointment at Vanderbilt for my mammogram and had to reschedule because of my delay with no explanation as to why.
Patient | July 10, 2018

Dr. Kuchtey stands out above all other eye care specialists I have seen.

Good experience!
Patient | June 21, 2018

I think Dr. Kuchtey is a good doctor who always seems in a hurry, but not in an effort to see patients on time. I was taught and ran my professional practice on the rule that no paying client should wait more than a half hour without an apology, explanation, and offer to reschedule, because this is simply common courtesy.
Patient | June 18, 2018

Patient | April 30, 2018

Dr. Kuchtey was superior in every way. Her understanding of the whole procedure was on such a high level that she fully anticipated any problems I was likely to have. She is an exceptionally nice person who demonstrated great concern for the well being of this patient.
Patient | April 30, 2018

I'm hard of hearing seemed to frustrate dr. when I asked her to repeat things.

My wife's eyes were far worse after the doctor performed cataract surgery.

Dr. Kuchtey is always worth waiting for.
Patient | February 24, 2018

This was a post op exam.
Patient | January 29, 2018

I just don't think the doctor really cared about my eye problems. I told her my right eye was having some issues and there was some sores at the end of my eye and in the corner of my eye on the top lid. She didn't say or do anything about my problem. My right eye still has those sores!
