This man performed an unnecessary uterine suspension on me when I was 19, and I nearly died from bladder complications afterward. At 28, I'm still suffering from related problems. And every doctor I've seen since has been shocked he would have done this to someone so young. He thought I had endometriosis and decided to add the suspension on during an exploratory surgery. Turns out I have a gluten intolerance that was causing gastrointestinal distress. Totally unrelated.

Dr. Dunaway has worked very hard to help my husband and I with the possibility of having a child. We are in the process, and it has taken a couple of years, but I trust his professional opinion and love his staff. I would recommend doctor Dunaway over anyone in the nation. I will also be using him myself for as long as my body will allow.

This man is such a Godsend! It took him all of a few minutes to diagnose a problem that had been misdiagnosed for 10+ years by my previous RE. I am so grateful that he was able to finally give me a correct diagnosis and surgically correct something that I was told before could not be done
