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.

Dr. Unk is a caring, knowledgeable doctor who listens and has enough experience to look beyond obvious solutions. She’s been my primary care physician for 20 years. She always responds promptly when I’ve had an urgent health issue. I’m dreading the day she retires.

Dr Unk is awesome physician. She is so very attentive. Her bedside manner is unparalleled.

I have been fortunate enough to have Dr. Unk as my primary care physician for the past 20 or so years. She is the most personable, compassionate, and supportive doctor I have ever had. At times, her schedule was booked and I had to see other doctors at the practice. Although all but one of them was really good, I never had the same rapport with them as I have with her. She has been there through my postpartum depression, my lifelong journey to become healthier, and everything in between. I just had my yearly visit with her. I was practically in tears due to recent interactions with my daughter. She immediately picked up on my sadness, gently asked questions to get me to open up, talked through some solutions, and had me laughing by the time I left. She is an incredible doctor and human being.

Dr. Unk is amazing! She’s patient, kind and really listens to her patients. You don’t feel rushed at all with her, and she really cares. She always checks up on health concerns and reassures you about next steps. I’ve recommended many friends to her, and will continue to do so. I cannot recommend her enough!

Dr Unk is probably the most caring and compassionate doctor I know. She is extremely easy to talk to, never makes you feel rushed, and will address all of your concerns. She really listens to you and makes you feel like your well-being is a team effort between the two of you. Her medical assistant is awesome also. I feel lucky to have such a good doctor.

This woman is so caring and compassionate. We have been through many years of cancer together and she is my doctor and my friend. She has also helped my daughter through teenage issues and helped put her on the right path to better mental health. You know that she truly cares. And she listens to your knowledge and opinions about your care so that you are more like partners. I cherish her and love her!
