One Star

This Dr, always seemed stressed out.Very hard to grt in to see him. Never returned calls. Always had to see nurse practioner or go to urgent care if I got sick suddenly. Dr. is burnt out and needs to take a long break.This was not the case in the beginning, but after about 4 years he changed.Not a happy Dr.

My favorite doctor

Dr. Comunas is knowledgeable, caring, and has a terrific bedside manner. He is particularly gentle with sensitive medical issues, understanding the human side of the patient. He is thorough in his exams and diagnoses have been accurate 100% of the time. I've since moved out of state and have yet to find a primary care physician of his caliber.
