Dr Kurian was a great provider and I’m very happy with our visit.
Dr. Kurian and Misha are fantastic!!!! I couldn't have asked for a better cancer genetics / surveillance team. They were detailed, compassionate, allowed plenty of time to ensure all of my concerns were addressed, and equipped me with a solid plan for surveillance. I felt listened to, comfortable, and extremely happy with the care I received. I am considering a PPO plan just so that I can keep them in my care team. Amazing clinicians that I would highly recommend to anyone in my situation!!!
I feel very honored to talk to Dr. Kurian, the team was extremely nice and caring, I really appreciate their help.
She was very good help
She is hands down the most helpful, kind, thoughtful doctor I have worked with in a long time. I truly believe and trust she would go out of her way to make the absolute best decisions for her patients, and I trust her research and intelligence. In addition, she is the most personable and helpful doctors I've talked with and that is really saying something. Brilliant, well researched and prepared, thoughtful and kind in discussions, easy to talk with, extremely helpful and efficient all at the same time. Kind of a super human doctor.
Dr. Kurian was amazing. She was informative and clear, while also being incredibly empathetic and reassuring. It was the first time in a while that I left a doctor’s visit feeling hopeful and uplifted.
Dr. Kurian is an excellent doctor. She is caring and helpful. What I have problem with is not about the doctor. What is concerning here is that it turned out I needed to do a blood test before this Friday Jan 7th. The order was issued during this Dr. Kurian’s visit on Dec 22. But I just learnt about it by pure accident yesterday Jan 4th when I was checking in for another medical test. This blood test was not mentioned to me by anyone. Nor can I find it on any document sent to me post visit. I would like to know why and how this blood test instruction was not communicated to me.
Very professional, caring and dedicated. She always go above and beyond, and is a compassionate listener,
As usual, very attentive and aware of my concerns
She is wonderful. Her assistants... are okay.

Very impressed with Dr. Kurian. She was personable, responsive, and competent. She spoke in terms that a non medical person could readily understand, and gave me every opportunity to ask questions.
I appreciate Dr. Kurian taking the time to see me since I know she was covering patients for another doctor. I was really impressed on how professional and respectful she was toward me. She explained my options to me in a clear concise manner. I walked away from the video appointment feeling like she actually cared. I've seen a lot of doctors in my five year cancer fight, and believe me, feeling like your physician cares about you and your well being isn't always the case. So to feel that over the computer with someone I just met is impressive. How can I get permanently assigned to Dr. Kurian?

Dr. Kurian is tops!

Excellent MD.

Contacted genetics counselor regarding follow up dr.'s gynecologist appt. no response after 5 days.
Dr. Kurian cleared up my misconceptions the resident created. Time with the resident was not well spent. Although the resident was kind and polite, he told me too many things that do not apply to me.
I appreciate Dr. Kurian's willingness to answer all my questions and spend a lot of time with me in the clinic. I appreciate how familiar she was with my case even before she saw me, by reading my previous medical record and speaking with the surgeon Dr. Jacqueline Tsai.
Honestly Dr. Kurian was one of the best doctors that I have ever interacted with because she gave me as much time as I wanted, thoughtfully answered all of my questions, even the tangentially related ones, was not condescending or dismissive as I feel MD's often area, and she spoke to me with the knowledge that I'm a scientist which was appreciated and made the answers she provided much more valuable and informative and helpful.

I have a rare genetic mutation, of which she is quite knowledgeable, and she always makes sure to discuss my upcoming surgery for it and address any of my concerns.
