Hopkins is the best!

Dr. Tunkel was excellent. After seeing local ENTs in Montgomery County Maryland it was day and night to be seen by someone with such expertise. It takes a while to get an appointment but he is totally worth it. He listens, he cares and has excellent skill and bedside manner

Good but Rushed

Obviously Dr. Tunkel is above average in his area of expertise. However for a new patient visit, with a very complex set of issues, he did not spend adequate time and frequently cut me off when trying to give information. Came away with some new information, but several issues remain in limbo.

Dr. Tunkel is the best. My son was under his care for a trach for about a year. When I moved from Maryland to California, he personally called me to ask if I needed assistance with finding a doctor out here, he's just awesome!

The best!! Dr. Tunkel removed by sons thyroglossal duct cyst and was wonderful. He answered our questions and left us feeling hopeful. My son had two previous failed surgeries to remove the cyst in his neck with another doctor in another state. Dr. Tunkel was referred to us from a family friend and we are so grateful! All I have to say is if you want the best look no further. He is thorough, smart and personable! Our other doctor left us feeling doomed and hopeless Dr. Tunkel turned the light back on, we'll be forever grateful!
