Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Kunkle performed my fractured femur neck surgery following an accident and transport via 911 fire department service to Auburn Community. I was in extreme pain for 5 months. My phone calls were never answered. At my follow ups, all xrays were "perfect". After 5 months of pain my primary care doctor and physical therapist recommended a second opinion. Second opinion was that the tip of the prosthesis had moved and I probably will need revision surgery. Avoid Dr. Kunkle. Go to a real hospital.

I am going to Dr. Kunkle for a knee replacement. I have been with him since December of 2015 after a car accident that broke my left leg. I was met with a very friendly staff and Dr. Kunkle showed me all x-rays and explained in detail my fracture and completely answered all of my questions from me and my wife. I would recommend him to everyone that may need his services.

I highly recommend Dr. Kunkle and his orthopedic office! I fractured/dislocated my ankle in February 2015 and was under his care until this month. After multiple surgeries, I rave about his acceptional range of knowledge, bedside manner and the nurses/staff that support the office. I tell everyone who asks about my injury what a precise, compassionate and brilliant DR he is. I am going to miss him and everyone in his office! XO
