Too Backwards in her thinking.

I saw her twice and both times my Glucose Numbers came back very high. I am on an Insulin Pump and through my own testing I knew that my Sugars were running high. Bunner then told me that I am not eating a proper diabetic diet. I was told that as long as I know the amount of Carbs that I was digesting and I knew what to bolus for than by blood sugars should be in the normal range. At the time I had been on the Insulin Pump for almost 4 years and my A1-C's were always in the 5s. After our first meeting I went on a strict Diabetic diet and at my next appointment my A1-C numbers were higher. Again she gave me the same reasoning that I was cheating on my diet. I never saw her again and ended up moving to Pittsburgh where my new Endocrinologist diagnosed me with Celiac Disease which was throwing of my Glucose levels. I just wish Dr. Bunner was a bit more educated as far as the Endocrine system works. I was very disappointed in Dr. Bunner's care and he lack of knowledge.

Two Stars

My experience with this office: it started out good until after my thyroidectomy. Now I never have my phone calls returned. I have to leave literally minimal info for them to return my calls. A few of the women at the front desk are extremely rude and unprofessional with clients. Every time I've talked to someone about a medication dose change, the person I'm speaking with never knows what dose I'm currently on. I assumed when phone calls were made they would have my info somewhat nearby for reference. I eventually typed up my own patient history for them to review. They also lost all of my info in their computer somehow and had to re enter me after being seen for over a year at this office. Very frustrated. I feel like a number not a patient.

One Star

my mother has been a patient of Dr Bunners now for almost 2 years. I went to the drs with her to ask to actually be seen by the dr. We were seen by the nurse practitioner which is fine most of the time but after going to the drs and being treated only by what the thyroid tests say it is time to tree the dr. however, it seems to be an elusive thing to actually see the dr who is making decisions for your health care. THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND SHE SHOULD BE REPORTED! she gets 0 stars, and that is for NOT even showing up! SHame on you ..

Poor care

This doctor does not like to be questioned, is not up to date regarding treatment of hypothyroidism, and will dump you if you indicate you want a second opinion.
