Did not care for this Dr Bunik at all. Very Arrogant, talks down to you and spends almost no time. Talked to me like I was an idiot.
Kevin, I am the nurse manager for Dr. Bunick at Yale Dermatology - Middlebury. I am sorry to hear that your experience was less than satisfactory, as that is never our intention. We strive to provide the best patient care from beginning to end. I would ask that you contact me directly so we can discuss and rectify this at your convenience. You can reach me by email, cara.esposito@yale.edu, or by phone, 203-577-1050. I truly look forward to speaking with you soon. Best, Cara Esposito

I learned to judge dermatologists by being burdened with many skin problems throughtout my 84 years. Christopher Bunick is by far the best of the many who've treated me around the world. (I was a foreign correspondent for many decades) He's very knowledgeable, very skillful, uncommonly forthcoming. He also happens to have fine human qualities that brighten my visits to him and help me heal more quickly: deep friendliness backed by a fine sense of humor. Dr. Bunick is truly outstanding.
Thank you Mr. Feifer! We always look forward to your visits. Happy holidays, Cara Esposito

Dr. Bunick is excellent at what he does!!! Very intelligent but very kind!!! Takes time to explain things to not only me but my son with autism!!! He really goes above and beyond!!! My son calls him a genius!!! He has cleared his terrible acne within a few months. I had to wait months for others to see him and he was able to see Dr. Bunick right away not 6 months on a waiting list. And I was rudely to by one Dr. Why does he care he's autistic!!! So Dr. Bunick is really a gem to find!!!
On behalf of Dr. Bunick and his staff, thank you so much for taking the time to write this thoughtful review. We strive to deliver only the best patient care at each appointment and are so glad that it showed. We are looking forward to seeing you and your son again. Best, Cara Esposito, LPN Nurse Manager
