Patient Comments (7)
in Rochester NY |
Kunze should have his license pulled. Never returns calls. My primary doctor contacted his office and Kunze would not call back. The office staff is the worst I've ever dealt with. Fight to get appointment, fight to get them to call back, fight to contact Kunze and even a fight to get scripts. I tried to contact office for two days and no answer. I called another doctors office in the group. I was told the secretary turned off the phone because she was so busy.

Very difficult to get to speak to Dr Kunze. Almost impossible even after procedure. Spent little time to focus on issue.
Rochester, NY |
I called to make an appointment and was completely taken back by the rudeness and lack of compassion from the Secretary who scheduled my appointment and to add insult to injury I received a call from my Doctor's office secretary stating how rude his staff was to them. Needless to say my primary is referring me to a different doctor and practice. I am in the health care profession and appalled on how patients are treated.

Kind caring and knowledge
in Rochester, NY |
He did a colonoscopy on me several years ago. I am only now recovering normal bowel function, nearly 5 years later. He was condescending in his tone and manner. He blamed ME for the procedure going poorly! He is an incompetent JERK!
in Elba, NY |
Took my mother there and Kunze had her so upset and was so uncaring was a sin. The office secretary was a witch. Nasty put it mildly.
in Rochester, NY |
He is abrupt, rude and arrogant. His office is run poorly. Placed on hold for an extensive amount of time repeatedly. If I can't rely on staff in office to get things right, how can I trust this office with my health?
