Called this office to make an appointment. Recording said I was #1 in a line of ONE. However, I was on hold so long that I eventually hung up. UNPROFESSIONAL in my opinion. Thank you.... next!

He is not the beat pain management doctor. He turned my care over to nurse practitioners refused to see me. When his office was on Broadway in the back of an old church, he did a metabolism test. His staff then "lost" my results before scanning them into the computer. After repeatedly questioning my care, they changed my prescription. Kicked me out and now I cant g to any other clinic cause he blocked me. Calling me a drug addict. What a jerk!!!!

Dr Dunbar is the worst physician I've ever met. As a paramedic for over 20 years, I was referred to him for cervical epidurals. The first was uneventful, however the second hospitalized me for 5 days. Dr Dunbar somehow injected air into my cerebral spinal fluid and air emboli traveled to my brain. He was aware that I immediately had a severe headache with severe vomiting. He instructed me to "drink caffeine" and it would eventually go away like it was no big deal. Find another doctor, please!!!

This office does not prescribe pain medicine the first visit and they make you wait two weeks for any kind of relief. Staff is rude, there is no compassion.

My husband has been a patient of his for about 20 years. He is rude, uncaring and will not listen to you. He has lied in his medical records numerous times. When my husband told him he wanted to be weaned off of the pain medicine, the doc got mad and said he can't stop taking it. My husband used to have an implanted pain pump that he did finally convince the doc to wean him off of and the day of the surgery the doc was still trying to talk him into having another pump put in.
