The Best of the Best. Our Family nicknamed Her St. Bunick for all the help She gave us. f Shes late for am appointment there was an emergency. She'd do the same for You--if You have an emergency. She knows all the rare diseases and complications. Diabetes is her favorite (as far as I can tell disease to treat. If You get to see Her You are blessed.
She is an excellent doctor who spends as much time as needed with each patient, which then makes wait time increase, but when it is your turn she will make sure you tell her everything you need to talk about before you leave her office. Very caring, which has caused a lot of people just starting with her be offended with the wait time. Sometimes something that is worthwhile, even a nice cooked meal vs. fast food, can take more time but be well worth it if you give her a chance to take care of you. She is very thorough with each patient before they leave her office, but that is why she is so good!!!!
Unbelievably long wait time in waiting room. Dr. Bunick did tests on me, then sent me a diagnosis for Hashimoto's and a prescription THROUGH THE MAIL! No phone call, no direct follow-up. When I had a reaction to the medication and called the office staff, they put me on hold, then came back and told me that Dr. Bunick said I must have the flu! Told me to take med again that night. I did and ended up in the ER with reaction. Still no follow-through with either Dr. or staff. I changed doctors quickly. Very poor client service, non-caring attitudes, and not worth the wait or my health!!
