Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Oh my goodness ! Where do I begin? At 36 years old with likely hereditary cataracts rendering me suddenly blind, with one especially complex mature cataract, four weeks of my life became total chaos. Endless doctors and appointments involving unsympathetic listeners who seemed not to care what I was presenting to them. Long story short, don’t go to a large eye clinic that sounds like “rue” Aka KU. BUT DO RACE TO HUNKELER! I was so incredibly surprised and happy beyond belief after multiple negative events to find everyone at Hunkeler —literally every employee — being kind and thoughtful and honestly treating me like family or a close friend. Having worked in health care on the finance side and seeing every angle, Hunkeler Eye Institute goes far above and beyond and gave me my life back. That’s no hyperbole; it’s what happened from March 2nd to March 11th, 2020. Billing, scheduling, the doctors, it’s all run like performance art here. Don’t let anyone else touch your eyes! ??
