He is very kind, listens to concerns and answers any questions. Very good doctor. I've had him for many years.

Review for Dr. Abu-Halawa

Dr Atay has been great with me. He was in surgery with me when I needed a new valve. I would say he was one of many drs that saved my life that day! I'm truly grateful to him.

Review for Dr. Atay

Dr. Dunn does not wear a mask, nor do his office staff. He discourages patients from wearing them in what appears to be a reckless effort to increase his business by spreading sickness.
