Wonderful, caring Dr.!

I have been going to Dr Munch for many years. I think she is a wonderful, caring Dr.! She is very knowledgeable. She has referred me to a specialist on two different occasions, because she knew that was the care I needed. As far as a personal Dr., I would not consider anyone else. I truly believe the bad reviews were from people wanting a quick for their pain pill problems and she saw through them! Thank you Dr. Munch for being a caring person!!!

After reading the other reviews and mine and other family members experience, I think she must have a twin. I have extreme, chronic pain and she tried to force me to take antidepressants (even though I told her I have had past bad experiences with at least 5 different ones) and told me "don't let your pain control your life". No pain meds or relaxants. A 10 minute lecture about jumping in to back surgery, even though I never even mentioned surgery. Wouldn't give my brother a Rx for anxiety med he has taken for over 20 years but gave Rx to sister-in-law for pain and anxiety med (neck prob from computer) even though she said she didn't want them. Sent me to incompetent neuro, said he's great. I still have no answers or relief.

I have used her for many years and seen her at her best and at her not so best. Her persistence was a life saver for a family member of mine, but her bed side manner was very insensitive with my daughter who was already upset by the seizure she had suffered. Her eyes were red from crying and the doc asked why?! She already had the blood test and screens to back up the no alcohol or drug use. Just missed the tenderness she needed with the unknown condition. I also read the other report of a patient, she has never been free with pain meds or relaxants to my knowledge even when it was called for, very cautious.

Terrible Excuse for a Doctor

I have never encountered a doctor with this little knowledge about medicine in all my 50 years. I truly worry about the people that she sees. She only knows how to give out excessive pain meds and nerve medications instead of finding the true cause of the problems. She should have her lic. removed from practicing medicine.
