Patient Comments (3)
in Grover Beach, CA |
I had surgery performed by a dermatologist who did not remove all the cancer from my forehead. Another dermatologist examine me and made some pretty serious recommendations that would involve plastic surgery to repair any additional damage. I called to see if I could meet with Dr. Kunkle for a 2nd opinion. I don't know who I talked with, but it couldn't have possibly been an employee. Who would hire someone so disrespectful? I actually wonder how he keeps his present patients.

I saw this doctor 2 months ago and was very, very pleased with the doctor. He was very friendly and seemed very caring, and explained things to me. Also followed up with a house call to see how I was doing. As for the staff, they were wonderful. Very nice and friendly receptionist named Bethany, the doctor's assistant Diana wash very nice and knowledgable, A very nice and efficient doctor's office to deal with. Would highly recommend it. Best dermatology office. Great experience!

I called ahead to say I was going to be 10 to 15 minutes late and they told me to come in anyways so I rushed over and I got there 15 minutes later and was very apologetic and the front desk lady was very rude to me and told me she would reschedule me which I am fine with and I understand, but her attitude was so hostile and rude. Her name was Bethany and I'm sure her employer would like to know how she treats patients. I should not have been late and understand but not the rudeness.
