Family!! That's the best way to describe my experience with Dr. Kurian and his amazing staff! Like family they have gone above and beyond to take care of whatever is needed to greatly improve my quality of life! From the way Brett handles the front office with attention to detail and a sincere desire to provide the best answers to any questions I have ever asked to Graciella who always greets me with a professional attitude and a courteous smile! Dr. Kurian respectfully takes the time to listen to my information and then patiently goes over any and all details regarding my treatment options. There's no other place I trust to take care of me than my ``family`` at Principal Spine and Pain Consultants!
