It is nice to be able to spend a sufficient amount of time with the DR who was specialized in the type of care I needed. He assured me I would feel better after the MRI and surgery to fix what the last DR I seen should have fixed. I can't wait.

Dr. Kuhn has to be THE best doctor for personality, caring, loves his job, engaging, listening, professionalism, calmness, confidence but humility. Love the guy!

Dr. Kuhn has an excellent manner when I see him. He remembers what we've talked about before which is VERY impressive.
Patient | September 18, 2018

Dr Kuhn is above the bar of other doctors I have seen. He has been able to restore my shoulder back to better use than prior to my surgery. What others did not see, he got to the bottom of my injury. He nailed it and I am forever grateful.

Patient | February 16, 2018

I have seen numerous orthopedists (including orthopedic surgeons) over time -- Dr. Kuhn is exceptional, especially for a surgeon, in truly paying attention to patient (me in this case), seeking to see and understand patient as a human being, never seeming rushed, yet clearly explaining factors involved in surgery + recovery. He establishes rapport and inspires confidence.
Patient | February 12, 2018

Patient | December 29, 2017

My experience with Dr. Kuhn was excellent. He is very personable and extremely knowledgeable in his field. He took the time to explain everything to me in a way that I would understand. Since this was my first visit with him he took some time to get to know me and he showed that he's a genuine person that truly cares about his patients and their health. I would definitely see him again for any orthopedic problems and I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. Dr. Kuhn is a real asset to the Vanderbilt medical team.
