Specialties

Dr. Kent E Kunze has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

HORRIBLE Experience

NEVER listened to us as parents. HORRIBLY rude. FIND SOMEONE ELSE. This man should not be employed, and his lack of caring should be called out. I believe, now that I've reviewed his insurance billings, that he is also fraudulently coding insurance documents, and once I verify that is fact, I will see him in court, and hopefully....in front of the medical board. He should not be licensed.

Dr. Kunze

Charges way to much and did stuff without my consent. He was very rude about a lot of stuff and tried to make me feel intimidated.

Great doctor

Dr. Kunze is great. He listens to the parents' opinions and thoughts. He also talks at length with the kids. As a parent, I always leave his office feeling that I've been heard. I highly recommend him .

excellent caring doctor

Dr Kunze actually looks at you and talks without writing the entire time. He takes time to get to know the kids. He increased his patient time to 20 minutes. I have had3 of my kids to see him and it has been very positive. He does treat the kids with great respect and not just talking to parents. I've seen a lot of psychiatrists and he's one of the best. One negative is that he's not so good with returning phone calls. It takes days. But this is common with busy doctors.
