Dr Unkel is a wonderful pediatrician. I am 50 years old and went to him. When my daughter was born I also entrusted her care to him. He is the best in this area. He is smart, caring, and professional. Your children will be in the best care with him. Paige Walker Marcantel

Follow up with Dr. was a disappointment. I had to call several times to get results from MRI & then the nurse was not very professional when finally telling me how I was to follow up from diagnosis. No discussion about cause of injury, therapy, exercises, etc.. Will not be returning.

I have been going to Dr Peavy for years. I've never had any problems until recently with his staff workers. Giving me prescriptions not signed. Lying about calling and leaving messages on my voicemail and I asked to speak with Dr. Peavy and now he is dismissing me from the clinic.
