    Hi my name is Shenandoah Nugent. I am asking a question if you practice in southern California Orange county during the 90s. If so I might be one of you patients. One of the surgeries were performed at Western Medical Santa Ana . I am looking for a referring Hand doctor to look at how the left hand is operating. If you are the same Dr Buncke please call or e-mail. back. Thank you 714 846-7496 ddooaahh@gmail.com
