I think it's sad how every one of the comments below are negative. He's a great doctor who cares about his patient's, he's not going to coddle you. Put on your big girl panties and quit crying because he hurt your feelings. He there to get you better not to be your BFF.

By doing this he has missed pertinent information that...Read More

Staff is slow. It took me 1 week to get them to renew a prescription. Dr. Kunhiraman has a bad attitude all the time. If you come up with an idea to use new drug or ask about a new study he will discredit them if he didn't get the information first, very closed mind. Very bad bedside manner. What...Read More
