this doctor was great in asking for my opinions on treatment, which was great, as I did not have to start over on anxiety treatment. my only concern was prescribed a medication that was never spoke about. other than he was sending in 2 scripts. this was my first experience with this doctor Kunstel. I am totally happy and will continue treatment
Very satisfied with Dr. Kunstle's care.
Dr. Kunstle is great about listening to my health problems and actually presenting valid and tangible solutions to them.
on time
Dr. Kunstel is a great doctor. he takes the time to be thorough. I never feel rushed.
Again. It was the end of the day. Felt a little rushed out of there. Mainly not knowing the plan going forward. I guess I'll just wait until my lab work comes back but still not sure about the referral to the specialist. Maybe I need to wait the four weeks until my next appointment and they will let me know when that time?
ELBOW XRAYS=SEVERE RA, ACCP=OFF the chart for RA, ESR + CRP values both, HI range for RA! need i go on??? And he sends me to a Nuerologist???? Total waste of Dr McDonald's time AND ours, missing work. After showing Dr McDonald OUR blood profile and XRAY results, which he did NOT have. His question was, "what are you doing here"!!! And NOW, Dr Kunstle/Dr McDonald want to send me to an Orthopedic surgeon. What am I missing????? Possible OPTUM does not have a Rheumatologist in house?? And we HAVE to keep our patients in house!
The doctor is very thorough with my health treatment. Answers all my questions.
It took a while after having *Dr. Pennington forever. I was ready for a new doc but changed my mind. *Dr. Kunstle is great!!
*Doctor K. was very insightful.
