Just started seeing Dr. Da Cunha about 2 months ago. Couldn't be happier! Great doctor and staff is so helpful!
in Munford, TN |
Very responsive to my needs! Excellent at working around my schedule for prescription pick-ups.
Memphis, Tn |
Dr. Da Cunha always takes the time with me to ask how my medication is going, how my life is, and is always precautionary with prescribing medication, as he seems to be one of few doctors out there to understand just how serious these medications are and how they can go from helping people to a problem. I will always recommend Dr. Da Cunha to anyone seeking medical psychiatric advice.

This doctor overbooks appointments and the wait time is excessive

Dr. Dacunha is the best psychiatrist in the world. I have been seeing him for a little while now and I am more than satisfied. Dr. da cunha came with recommended. His assistant Jessie is sweet. she was very professional and helpful. She answered all my calls and questions.
in Arlington, TN |
Dr DaCunha has treated me for years. He is a very caring Professional who takes his time with his patients. His assistant Jessica is always very professional and helpful as well. You don't feel like "just another chart/patient", you're made to feel as if you're their only Patient. I would hate to know I had to go anywhere else. 5 stars!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Da Cunha's for six years. He is a very kind and caring man that takes his time with you. The waiting room is often packed and I have waited quite a while to see him occasionally (the only reason for 4 stars vs 5). His assistant Jessica is a gem. She knows me before I even sign in and has always been helpful in explaining my bill, insurance, etc. She has had to call and reschedule appts before but it has never been a problem. Wonderful doctor and sweet assistant.

Exceptionally unprofessional assistant. She called me informing me my appointment for the next day was cancelled and was rescheduled in a month. When I inquired about rescheduling sooner she raised her voice and told me to find another provider if I didn't like the action she took. This behavior is not only unprofessional and conveys a lack of regard for patients, it is also a liability for the Dr. if his patients are not followed at appropriate intervals.

Dr Da Cunha is a very kind and compassionate Doctor. I have complete faith in him and appreciate everything that he has done for me. However, his office employee is extremely rude and offensive. Anyone that talks to people in such a rude and intolerant manner has no business in the medical field where empathy is so necessary.
in Burlison, TN |
Today I drove 2 hours for my first visit with Dr, Dacunha. I was a little nervous about how the visit would go with such a long drive in and the mixed reviews I had read. I arrived 8 minutes late and his assistant greeted me at the window. I filled out paper work which was lengthy but his assistant ( i think her name is Jessie) set in the waiting room and helped me. I had to wait for thirty minutes on the doctor to call me back, but when I got back I was not rushed. HE and JEsSIE are the BEST!

I enjoyed visiting with Dr. Da Cunha. I have never experienced anything other than extreme professionalism when dealing with his office staff. Jessica has always been very helpful when scheduling my appointments. One of the nicest assistants I have ever met.
in Memphis, TN |
Dr Da Cunha is a very good doctor. He takes the time to listen to me and does not rush me. I sometimes have to wait for 30-45 minutes to see him but it is worth it. Jessica, his assistant, has gotten me in to see him immediately sometimes or within the month. She has spent time making me feel at home while waiting on him. she is never anything but nice to me and others in the waiting room. I have seen patients get rude with her and she handles it like anyone else would.
His low score is due ti Jessica. She is rude and very dishonest. She says you missed appts you never had. Many times she would cancel the appt. On occasion we drove 2 hours and she said she canceled the appt and left a voicemail which was a lie.

Dr. Da Cunha was the best doctor that I have ever had. Unfortunately, Jessica that works in the office is rude, aggressive, and completely unprofessional. She said that I missed appointments that were never scheduled and then I received a letter that I was no longer a patient. Interesting, since I went to Dr. Da Cuhna for 5 years. I was going through a traumatic divorce. I would love to know the real reason I was asked to leave. I cant even put into words how upset I was and still am.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Dacunha is great, but his assistant Jessica is the worst! She's rude and very unprofessional and should not be working for a doctor. Perhaps a profession where she is not allowed to speak would be better suited for her.
