Dr. Buncke is a good surgeon but boy is he a rude baster and mean man.Because of this I would not recommend him to family or friends.If you took the time to listen and be on the patients side and try to understand the pain the PT are in instead of mr. know it all.You might be a 5 star.But you are a mean man. You make your PT cry.I have heard this from others and found out I was not the only one who was put down so badly in your office.You need to be compassionate when PT are suffering with pain

Worst bedside manner surgeon of whom I've ever dealt. He was rude to patients and rude to his friendly/accommodating staff. Surprised he is still in business. Good surgeon, miserable attitude. I would NOT recommend him to work on my daughter's pet rat. Miserable listener. Recommended that family cancelled cross-country vacation to visit him one more time, and was livid when we did not take recommendation. Took recommendation of therapist and son gained full motion of pinky.

I broke a bone in my hand, the same bone in the same hand that I had broken a year ago. Dr. Buncke felt I would mend without surgery, so I opted for casting. While it is not a delightful experience to have a heavy weight pulling down on my arm, I was delighted not to be "antibiotic'd and surgered. The hand has mended and is better than after the previous break. Dr. Buncke's skill, perfectionism, sardonic wit, availability made the whole process "bearable". He's superb.
