"Went to see Dr. Kuhn for plantar faciatiis that has been troubling me for 6 months. Was given a cortisone shot in my heal and will be fitted for shoe inserts. Dr. Kuhn is a nice man that seems to know what he is talking about. He recommended some treatment option for my foot pain and gave me a shot. The shot was incredibly painful, but his nurse held my hand the entire time. She was very sweet!! Dr. Kuhn did not discuss any side effects from the shot, which ended up happening. However, he was quick to return my call and let me know that the pain would subside within 72 hours. He was correct! Going back to get fitted for shoe inserts next week. Hope this helps... Overall, the office is nice, the office staff is friendly, and I will be returning soon."
