Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Kunimoto saved my eyesight. Originally he saw me on a Sunday, having been referred to by the Emergency room for a detached retina. I see him annually. His practice takes him to several locations throughout the Phoenix area and the state of Arizona. I can go to any location that fits my time schedule, and have! I would wait, no matter how long, or how far behind his schedule gets, I will always wait, because I know he is helping someone with an emergency.

I believe Dr. Kunimoto excels in his field and communicates well with his patients; but when the patients are expected to wait two to three hours for each appointment, that is disrespectful of the patient. Problems outside of appointments seem to be referred out.

Inconsiderate Doctor.
