Dr. Gunningham very willingly takes the time required to answer any questions presented, whereas others just try to get "in and out". I hope he never retires!

I have been seeing this doctor for almost 7 years now. I have never had a problem and I always leave the office feeling heard, understood, and taken care of. He is an evidence based doctor who provides excellent care. I wouldn't dream of switching, and if I move out of state, I would wish I could take him with me!
