Rx for me did not get sent to pharmacy. I had to call your office to get my Rx sent there. The main reason I made appointment with this office was to get meds.

I was early for my appointment and seen right away. My husband also sees Dr. Kuri and that is why I made an appointment with Dr. Kuri. We both like him.

I've complained before about not getting an answer to my calls thru the answering service, but the problem continues.
Mar 19, 2022
Almost impossible to get thru on the phone. Almost always answered by an answering service (not clear why the office staff can't answer the calls directly), which then go unanswered after the answering service presumably passes the message on. Recently I needed an urgent answer to a medication problem, and I called via the answering service 3 days in a row without getting an answer. Finally got someone in the office on the 4th try.

Very good nurse. Wish i remembered her name
Mar 14, 2022
Filled out the info for my appointment online -- yet received a call wanting to go over info -- they hadn't checked to see that info was already updated.
Mar 14, 2022
I don't care about those things.I'm still annoyed you make me wear masks.I don't understand why you exceed the CDC standards.
Mar 12, 2022
Prescription and referral info did not get to the pharmacy. Still waiting 1 week later
Mar 12, 2022
Prescription referral did not get to the pharmacy
Mar 10, 2022
I really like Dr Kouri and his staff. Like I said front desk:AWESOME. O ly thing to make it better would be having pacer checks in Bandera rather than Hondo. However, we do try to his the HEB or Walmaer. So... Honestly, win-win cause Bandera doesn't have either.
Mar 10, 2022
GREAT!LOVE Dr. KOURI. The onlly thing that would be better is if we could pacer checks in Bandera and we didn't have to drive to Hondo.
Mar 10, 2022
Will need pacemaker battery replacement very soon. He explained the whole process very carefully to me. I really appreciated that since this procedure was different than than my last battery replacement.
Mar 10, 2022
I really liked her. Very professional and competent. She also listened carefully for my personal questions and any concerns I had.
Mar 10, 2022

Mar 10, 2022

Extremely knowledgeable and Extremely professional. I just ADORED her. Wish I had her name. The entire time I was there she handled every situation competently and professional and yet was kind to everyone. Ohhhh. She has bright red hair.

Feb 23, 2022
Awesome service!
Feb 23, 2022
I have my own limitations and difficulty with remembering pass codes etc. It is not a reflection on the staff that I have trouble with making appointments via email and portals. Dr Kuri's staff has actually helped me to get through to another doctor's office that was not so friendly.
Feb 23, 2022
Dr. Kuri's office is the best and fastest office to visit. However they continue to use the wrong telephone number to contact me including for this survey. I am not sure that I have received all of your calls.
Feb 22, 2022
Dr. Kuri and staff members were kind and thoughtful of my needs.

Feb 11, 2022
I'm completely at ease and am trusting Dr. Kuri with my life as well as my wife's.
Feb 11, 2022
I'm always pleased with the professionalism of the entire staff. That's why I recommended Dr. Kuri to my wife and now she sees him. I wouldn't have done that if I didn't have complete trust in Dr. Kuri.
Feb 10, 2022
Very good "bedside manner". Easy to relate to and understand
Feb 10, 2022
I really dislike being sent check in questions in a text to my phone. Email is fine but the phone is too hard for me to enter the information.
Feb 10, 2022
Making an appointment through the answering service is problematic. It took two tries to schedule an appointment. They were unable to make the appointment at the time of the first call. They said they would call back but they didn't.
Feb 10, 2022
ALWAYS A GOOD EXPERIENCEWITH DOCTOR KURI

Feb 8, 2022
Put this in the other comments
Feb 8, 2022
It was busy and I had to stand there and wait for the lady who cut me off to get inside. I'm pretty sure the receptionist saw that happen and I feel I should have been checked in first. I walk with a cane. Also I filled out my new insurance through the text message and it wasn't on there. Had to go through that again. Also a prescription was getting authorized under the wrong insurance.
Feb 8, 2022
I wish all doctors stayed on schedule like Dr Kuri.
Feb 8, 2022
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Asset to Dr Kuri. Dr Kuri was very compassionate, answered and explained all questions in a way I could understand and was very patient. LOVE AND RESPECT HIM!!!

Other than having to get a portal to order a Rx that wasn't ordered with the rest. Alway have a good experience with Dr. Kuri
Jan 8, 2022
I have faith in Dr Kuri as a Doctor he is very knowledgeable. On a personal level I don't feel any connection or concern from him. There is nothing wrong with that, I am just not use to not being friends with my Doctor. I seen him for a number of years and not looking to change. Just personal opinion, I have always gotten great care and always been give wonderful care.
Jan 8, 2022
I am not fond of check in on my phone. It is much better than paper work. The test I got with the information didn't come from a phone that had a name on it so I ignored it the day before. Or I would of been done with that from my desktop the day before.

Dr was easy to talk with and I was comfortable with him.

I have been told that Dr. Kuri is the pre-eminent cardiologist in San Antonio. After my appointment on March 15, I followed his instructions to the letter. I joined a gym, secured a personal trainer, began having my meals prepared by a food service, and started taking two new meds he ordered. On my visit Monday, Dr. Kuri was delighted by my progress: "Your numbers have plummeted!" I also have lost 22 pounds. I am thrilled and Dr. Kuri full credit for urging me on this new path!
