    Dr. Curren was absolutely wonderful. She listened, asked questions and provided both information, and options for me regarding treatment. I wish all doctors were like her.

    There is no one like Dr. Curren. She knew of the recent loss of my husband. She addressed my emotional health as well as my physical health. Her concerns are genuine. Would recommend her to anyone.

    In this, my first visit with Dr. Curren, she consistently demonstrated a solid, compassionate, respectful, and trust-evoking presence. She was receptive to everything I mentioned, easily responding clearly to questions and asking follow-up questions confirming that she has HEARD me. I especially appreciated her listening when I explained my reasons for not accepting a particular suggestion of her. She stopped, listened, processed my reasoning, and respectfully accepted my position. It was a JOY to finally connect with a doctor who treated me like an intelligent, sincere woman in need of a doctor she can trust.

    Never any bad experience & I have been Dr. Curren patient for 20+ years. She is very thorough & cares about my whole person (physically & mentally) & means a lot to have someone familiar w/history. Don't know how but she answers My Chart messages usually in just a few hours. GREATLY appreciate her.
