Specialties

Dr. John R Gunderman has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Rude and demeaning staff

This Dr was highly recommended. So we called, made the appointment, gave our insurance etc... all the normal stuff. This woman was nice. We had to wait a month, but I was assured that he was worth the wait. So on pins and needles we wait! The day of the appointment, we each have to take half a day off work and pull our daughter our of school early, but we do it. That is what is you do for your child and to see a good Dr, right? We arrive and are told, oh no, we don't accept HMOs. Well, I gave this information before, surely someone ran our insurance and confirmed everything, right? She comes back with her billing person who proceeds to chastise us for having an HMO. Oh no, they do not lower themselves to take an HMO. I repeated that we had given the information when we made the appointment but she just shrugs and acts like my insurance is a piece of trash as she hands it backs to me. I go from an exhausted, worried yet hopeful parent to a worried, exhausted, humiliated parent leaving in tears. There was no patience, compassion or willingness to even try to help. We leave with my now confused daughter who becomes upset and says "but I wanted the Dr to fix me". I hope this is seen by the office and specifically that person. You should be ashamed of yourself!!!

Good Dr..Lousy staff

My daughter was seen by Dr. Gunderman a few times, last time was 2009..She had been fine all these years , but now starting to have issues again..I called the other day to see if we could be seen again as she had been as established patient that we had seen many times and he even prescribed medication for her as well, for a few years, snobby receptionist, wish I knew her name, older woman that's all I remember .. that was snobby back then too, told me that Oh, no, she hasn't been here for so long that we can't take her back now because she is 18..Hello!! Pediatric..that means up to 21 for Primary Care Dr's..just completely felt that she didn't give a CRAP ..told to seek an Adult Dr...don't worry, I have no problem doing that..After I write a SCATHING review about your complete lack of compassion..she also mentioned that my insurance company was the worst to work with..well, sorry again honey,,that is what I have, didn't really have a choice as that is what my employer offers.. Dr. Gunderman is Ok..but he needs a COMPASSIONATE, CARING STAFF!!! I gave 2 stars because of the STAFF, it's what makes an office!! I work in a Dr.s office, so I know firsthand how important they are..

Rude and Insulting

We saw Dr. Gunderman for an ADHD assessment. He barely spent any time with our child and merely lectured us on parenting techniques. We left with no more knowledge than we came in with, but were insulted and treated rudely. Not only were we seen 40 minutes late, but we were ignored through a good portion of our intake because the doctor decided to take a phone call in the middle of it, without so much as an "excuse me". He acted as though he had us "all figured out" from the moment we walked through the door, then proceeded to talk down to us and basically ignore our concerns. Perhaps he does better with severe neurological conditions, but I would never recommend this doctor for a child with possible ADD/ADHD.

THE BEST!

4 stars is not enough to rate this amazing man and caring and dedicated staff. A doctor who actually takes time with parents and children, spending his time addressing concerns instead of loading info into a computer! His staff is sweet and comforting, very easy to deal with whether confirming your appointment, providing test results, or calming a parents' fears. Kudos to Dr. Gunderman and his wonderful staff!
