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.

The worse bedside manner of any Doctor I have experienced. He is very arrogant...does not listen..and thinks he is the know all of everything. I Will NEVER go back there. He gets away with this behavior because he is the only Endocrinologist in this area. I will travel as far as I needed to see an Endo in another area. Dr. Biju...if you are reading this...you have enough bad reviews to get that you need to make some changes.

If you don't answer him fast enough he YELLS the question at you again. He does not let you answer completely before spewing out another question then gets mad when at your next visit you tell him of a symptom you have that he was unaware of. By doing this he has missed pertinent information that effects my healthcare! I have caught him flat out lying and have a witness. He needs to be removed from his position but Yakima is desperate for doctors so this is what we get.

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 can you expect, all the good doctors leave Yakima.

The only thing worse than his unibrow is how slow his service is and his attitude.
