Paul J. Kuzma, MD


Paul J. Kuzma, M.D. enjoys his job as physician most when he sees patients out in the community doing well. “That’s the most rewarding thing for me”, he said.

Mainly treating those with back pain ailments, Dr. Kuzma performs a thorough evaluation and composes a personalized care plan for each patient. “We try to offer them the latest and most effective options to try and get them feeling better,” he said. “My goal is improving function and quality of life. We listen to each person, understand what their goals are and come up with a plan that will let them meet their goals and that can be different for everybody. We focus on non-surgical options for treating back pain, neck pain, and joint pain. Most patients with these conditions do not require surgery, and we have all sorts of options or them. We utilize multiple options and focus on non-opioid therapy”

What Patients Are Saying

“Dr. Kuzma is an extraordinary physician. I’ve been a patient of his for five years now. He is one of those who takes the time with his patients to understand them, their condition, and how it affects them; and, he helps you find solutions to your pain beyond the typical “here’s some medication”. This was extremely important to me, first as a soldier, and now as a retiree, as the other pain clinics I went to just pushed medication. I’ve recommended him to over a dozen folks I knew who need LONG TERM pain management as myself, who too feared an over-reliance on pain medication. When he left his last practice, I called Tricare and switched…And, when he does his procedures…he plays the best background music.” – Michael

“An absolute Gentlemen with a true heart that cares about his patience. I have seen many Doctors so I can tell the difference, believe me. He is professional in every way and is always able to bring my back and neck pain under control.” – Lynda
