“I saw Dr Kuwik because I was having difficulty with my knee. He was wonderful. After examining my knee, looking at X-ray we decided to proceed with an MRI. At the next visit, we discussed various options and decided to proceed with an injection (no pain involved!). I would highly recommend Dr Kuwik. He has a wonderful bedside manner and takes the time to answer all of your questions.”
