I was diagnosed with cancer May 2016, and referred to Dr. Hunis through a referral from my primary care physician. Best referral ever. I feel Dr. Hunis literally saved my life, and he is the only reason I am alive today. The Chemotherapy drugs I was given, and the caring treatment I received by both the doctor and his office, helped me go through this very difficult time. I would without hesitation recommend him to anyone needing cancer treatment. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Hunis.

how do I say thank you, to the doctor and his team, who are beyond wonderful. at the beginning I was anxious and fearfull, of the diagnoses of lung cancer. however after the moment I met dr Hunis I felt at ease and knew I was in the right hands,,,,my fearfulness was gone. his nurse and staff checked on me daily ...well after 8 months of chemo and radiation, I am cancer free..Dr Hunis also promised I would not lose my hair and I didn"t.. thank you Dr Hunis... YOU ARE A GEM....

Dr. Hunis really knows his lung cancer stuff! He was very personable and has a great sense of humor. I'm glad I traveled to South Florida to end up under his care by the recommendation of my daughter. He has 2 offices and the staff at both are excellent. The Aventura office is little quieter, but out of the way for me. The Hollywood office is busier, but very conveniently located were I receive treatment.

Dr. Brian Hunis, a hematologist/oncologist, was recommended by another physician. He has always provided optimal care to my husband, who has been suffering with Stage 4 cancer. Dr. Hunis has become like a family member to us- his concern for my husband is extraordinary. After chemotherapy & radiation, Dr. Hunis pursued immunotherapy with a major drug company, when our insurance declined to pay for treatment. I believe that my husband would not be alive today without Dr. Hunis's intervention.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hunis since 2014. I've completed treatment for tongue cancer with him. Dr Hunis is a compassionate doctor, attentive to the patient needs and very knowledgeable. He has a great sense of humor and his bedside manners are superb. He will call you to discuss test results instead of waiting 1 week after a scan, knowing the anxiety that the patient has about the test. All in all, a great person. His office is very efficient.
I have been a patient of Dr. Brian Hunis for 6 months. In that 6 months we have developed a relationship where I never feel that I am a number. Dr. Hunis recognizes and knows me by name Sandy. He greets me with warmth and compassion so that instantly I am relaxed and confident with his knowledge of how to treat my cancer. I highly recommend Dr. Brian Hunis and the Memorial Hospital experience to anyone who has this condition. The memorial team should feel honored to have a doctor of his caliber.

He makes you feel comfortable with yourself and not alone. Always available to talk to. Urges you to ask questions. Very straight forward and above board. Takes a very difficult time and helps you understand what is happening. LISTENS to your concerns.

Dr Hunis is very thorough while being down to earth and extremely personable. Funny and with very good bedside manners. He made me feel at ease during a very difficult ordeal with head and neck cancer. His office in Aventura is excellent too.
