Very uncommunicative, doesn't send orders, either
He ordered MRIs for my feet and ankles, but didn't write the orders correctly, so some of the scans ordered were denied by ins co. He had to write/resend, but I was told they were never received by the facility. Now his office does not return my calls and has left me hanging with no information, no contact.

My experience was horrible. I had an appointment time and showed up 10 minutes before my time as I had already completed the paperwork online. I waited 25 minutes till after my appointment time and the office was empty as all other patients had come and gone. I asked the receptionist what was going on and she said she didn't know and couldn't check. So I told her my time is valuable to to me and I left. What a total waste of time, but I wouldn't want to get involved with receiving care from an office that totally disrespects their patients time.

Went in to have a small cyst on my toe. He told me that the only way to get rid of it was to do surgery. My foot hurts me and I can hardly walk!! I ended up having 2 surgeries and my toe is a 1/2 inch shorter!!!

Dr. Funk is very conscientious. He is a great listener and provided interesting, helpful feedback to address my concerns. His staff was congenial and informative. There was zero wait time and the office was decorated nicely and kept very clean and sanitary. I would recommended Dr. Funk to all of my friends and family.

I was referred by Dr Rubens Office (Amy PA) for some minor stat Surgery. The receptionist said they had not received the referral but even had they received the referral non of their physicians could see me. Not once during our conversation did she say let me contact your physician regarding the referral and let’s see with it being a Stat referral be able to work you in. She said even with a referral she didn’t know if she could get me in next week or the following at all. Very non caring.

I had this provider repair a torn ligament through surgery at NW Medical Center. The result was so poor I needed an orthopedic physician to repair and to another surgery to fix the damage and pain.
