Initially I like the doctor and his office, but poor communication after having a test done. I waited for two weeks for a call back after multiple calls to their office and finally spoke to the office manager who placed the blame on me. I do not recommend this doctor or his office.

Saw him for a family member’s lung cancer diagnosis. He is extremely thorough, has a calm demeanor, and explains things excellently. He respectfully listens to and answers all questions. A few times our appointment has gone over an hour but he doesn’t rush us. He’s a wonderful doctor with a great bedside manner.

Great bedside manner. Takes the time to thoroughly explain everything... in simple language... that a 12 year old can understand.

My appt was at 230. At 225 as I was walking into office, I saw my dog getting into trash I accidentally left by front door. I have security cameras in my house. I told staff and asked if I could go home and get rid of trash and check on my dog. They told me if I leave I would have to wait couple months. I decided to wait as I could see on cameras dog was okay. At 3PM, 30 minutes after appt time, dr fuenning still not in office. I left at 300 PM. I was fired for leaving. Dog is okay

Dr Feunning is my hero. When I was 27 yrs old,working as a secretary on the cancer ward in a certain hospital in 1987, he was resident there. The staff,all 4 of them, smoked at the front desk all night long. I went home and coughed all night. He told me to write a letter to the head of the hospital. I did. She changed that hospital to non smoking. She stopped me and told me that my letter prompted her to make this change.Dr Feunning and I had a major victory. He's been my asthma dr for 30 years!
