Patient Comments (2)
in Srockton, CA |
I was an ER nurse at sequoia and watched Dr. Dunnar's work for years I asked her many questions in passing. She eventually performed surgery on my knees and shoulders due to work and sports related injuries. She is meticulous, skilled, and a very bright young lady. I would not go to anubody else ulness she suggested so.
in San Carlos, CA |
I didn't receive the best quality of care from her. In fact, she made a surgical error, and I had to have another surgery to correct it. When I went for a second opinion from another, she was surprised at some the treatment decisions that had been made, including the lack of any kind of early movement plan while in a cast or while in a brace afterwards. The physical therapist echoes this concern. She failed to inform me about the surgical error for weeks.
